I am really interested in matial arts, but I am not comfortable learning with others. I am not cocky or anything, but I am not good learning around other people. If anyone has a website or anything that can teach me stances or moves for any martial art, please tell me. thanks

Yea, I might end up doing that, but no place here is really committed. I checked out a karate place, but it wasn't what I really wanted. I want a place where i can be really close to the trainer and not just in one of his many classes. I guess I will have to just keep searching for what I am looking for. Thanks though for the insight on things.

Here is a hint:
Look for a Sensei that offers private classes, some may even come to your home. Its a bit more expensive, but if that is what you want, you should be able to find one. Just a note, depending on what style you want to do, it may be hard for a Sensei to do a private. An example-you really need a partner for groundwork, because the Sensei can't really detail when he is helping take the falls or giving you an arm bar. Also, you don't get the experience of dealing with sizes, in private classes, but that can come later. Another avenue is tapes though, picking up concepts and priciples from a tape is hard, but better than the internet

Yea I know I would need some partner, and i can probably find one, It will still be hard to find someone to teach me around here, cause it isn't a huge thing around here. I guess I will just have to drive around until i find a place. haha. alright thanks
