Ken its Ken, hello

I've not been on this forum for as long as a lot of people but there seems to be a lot of postings about what type of MA should they do. could we create a file that collates all the information on each style and then it could help our willing comrades in MA

but whilst this is waiting

Before you start going to a Dojo

ask youself what exactly do you want, once you have that then we can start

ask you self do you want a striking, wrestling, throwing, joint manipulation etc. from there come back and we can guide you

I'd personally recommend a complete art like Hapkido, Ashihara, Enshin, Traditional Japanese Atemi Jujitsu, Kippap, Krav Maga or Wado Ryu or Goju Ryu

Don't sign up to any 'packages' straight away, and most respectable club will alllow you to attend first lesson free and 2 or 3 at a charge per lesson after that to see if like the style.

You definately come to a forum where the years of knowledge is the best and they would not give you bad advise

My respect to them all, and good luck on your quest

Well Matt, it seems I was a bit slow in that as it is already there. I must have been on holiday that week and missed it although I have saved it to my favourites - Can it be made static to the front page like the posts regarding do's and don'ts

I was actually really interested in TKD since the Muay Thai lesson I took for free yesturday was kind of like.... Thai Bo from those infomercials. Does Tiger Shulmans teach TKD since I would much rather learn that I think than an aerobics class. I saw what they did in the class and honestly like it and enjoy it but I would like to learn a variety of things from one class. Like one of the people that replied to my original post said "Find a art that is complete" or something like that.

Well, if you are looking for something that covers all the bases so to speak, try Japanese Ju Jutsu (I hate having to add the prefix!!!! ), Ninjutsu (Bujinkan, Genbukan, Jinenkan), Hapkido, Jeet Kune Do, Silat, Eskrima, Krav Maga or Systema.

There are many more styles and systems besides those, but they will be a good place to start. Important thing to remember though is that the deficiency sometimes lies with us, not the MA.

Pretty bold statement, Mike. Have you seen every Kung-Fu style, that you can say so with authority? Even different schools of the same style train with different intensity levels. I have known a few bad-ass KF people in my time.

You should look around a bit more before making sweeping statements like that.

As much as I love BJJ, I have to say that your "kung fu is rubbish" statement is an over-generalization and dead wrong.

I attended a seminar this weekend and got my a$$ handed to me by the instructor, a kung-fu practitioner. The instructor is a long-time buddy of mine named Chris Heintzman whom I have not seen in almost 10 yrs. He and I trained karate together in the early 90s, and he then moved to N Carolina where he took up hop gar, tai chi and some choy li fut. He currently trains and fights in MMA/NHB/San Shou for a living.

We worked on some clinch/grappling work, and when I sparred with him he owned me. Seriously. I am a very good stand-up guy, and have good BJJ basics. I had no trouble grappling with most everyone else at the seminar, but once I clinched with Chris I was helpless. His use of good "sticky-hands" type sensitivity, understanding of how to control my center of gravity, and NHB experience made me about as helpless as a newborn babe.

Anyway, you may want to watch it when you say this or that art is "rubbish". Someone really good may come along and prove you wrong.

Peace,
Mike
