#134096 - 12/13/04 05:30 PM Big Choice Help

ok guys im really REALLY into martial arts, and once i finish high school (LONG time from now) i was wanting VERY much to go to china and enrole at a shaolin kung fu school, because there are plenty of good ones and the history fascinates me, so enrol for 3 years then come back and go to colledge, or (this is the choice my mom wants ;( ) for me to go straight to colledge, and not waste any time doing "useless things" that "have no point in your carrear etc..."Sp i would very much enjoy hearing your thoughts on this thx guys.

First the bad news:
1. You'll probably change your mind by the time you graduate high school.
2. I doubt the shaolin monasteries allow "drop-ins".
3. The language barrier.

Now the good news:
Enjoy yourself while you're young, and follow your dreams. There's plenty of time to get practical later. It's not a crime to hold off college for a few years. It may help. It did for me.
