yes, i think luffy is a martial artist
he fight with instinct, but is smart enought to invent new techniques and etc.
and i don't think learning a crappy traditionnal martial art would help him because he can't fight like anyone else ^^... so it's better if he follows his own path
yup luffy in definately fighting usingmartial art since all his moves has name.... its Gomugomu sch of martial arts hhehehe....
Since most martial art are develope by people from fighting experience..there are quite alot of martial art that copied from other types of martial art to like he learning soru and combining it whit his own ability.. like bruce lee.. you could say that he is creating his own type of martial art right now... from the experience he gain ffrom fighting .. the only down side is that u can't learn from him since u need to gomu gomu ability.......
If you think of Luffy as a martial artist, then you might as well think of him as a pistol or a bazzooka as well, cause it's pretty much the same thing. I personally think of Sanji as the "Martial Artist" of the straw hat crew, even tho' he doesn't normally use his hands. This is just one of those questions that will never be answered, cause there really is no right or wrong answer.
i don't think he is a martial artist. I think he is just base on luck. The closes one from straw hat crew coming close to a martial artist is sanji.
on luck ????

While I do agree that Sanji is the only real martial artist in the Strawhat crew, I wouldn't go as far as to say that Luffy skill is based on luck. After all, he spent 10 years developing the Gum-Gum Pistol, and he has trained with his crew throughout the entirety of the Grandline. If his skills WERE lucky, then he would have failed at SOMETHING by now. Unfortunately for you, he has as of yet to fail at basically anything he has done, and thus should not be considered lucky.
I'm a martial arts myself, (A black belt for tae known do for reference) I personally think that Luffy can't be called a martial artist. He's more like someone who watches too much tv and tries it himself.
Seems logical to me, captain.
i personnaly think you are no more than a monkey that imitates the moves your masters teach you.... and i don't say that against you, it's a general thought for all people who just ape ancient martial arts invented by martial artists...

and luffy is a martial artist BECAUSE he isn't like that ... he invents new techniques instead of just follow a tradition...
not a great one as a miyamoto musashi, but still a martial artist.
I think this discussion is pretty much over with...... seems like nobody really has much more to say......
