Wait on your instructors in a Class like Kenpo after learning the drills all you do is fight or do fighting drills. Wait until you learn something then you will have all the fighting that you can handle.
Some of our teen-agers skip fight night we fight so much, so sometimes I'll change the date and time when we usually do weapons or self defense to fight night pending out numbers. You can't escape learning how to fight in a MA club. BC you learn to fight by fighting. We have a street clothes night getting kicked by cowboy or combat boots (or any boot) hurts like hell but thats whats coming at you in the street you got to be ready for it.
Wait you will have so much figting you will be throwing up in the corners or sleeping sound on whatever side the black eyes not on. Look, learn and apply it takes more then a couple months. Usually white belts don't spar much the first couple months, What do you know? What can you use to fight with??? And you got to learn how to do it safely. White belts swing too wild and with nothing on it. We want to see techniques not wild swinging. Just being to the point, if you knew MAs you won't be in a beginers class or you would have patience. Thats one of the lessons learned, it will serve you well in life.
