As you can see, i'm not foreign to making an ass of myself. I go by what I hear, and according to many of you, that hasn't been reliable. So, i pose this question which is totally off the subject of the forum. What should one attempt to take from whatever martial art you choose.

Thats easy... what you need out of it!

Does the art maketh the person, or the person maketh the art!

Any art should make you better in every area from the day you start, how much better is what your perception of average, good or excellant is.

If little 8 year old Johnny is happy kicking a paddle round for an hour.. then he takes what he needs out of it, but if 14 stone bill wants to get fit and lose weight, he must strive for that, as must the guy who wants to develop his fighting skills to compete along side other quality martial artists.
An art offers the ingredients and the dojang/instructor the recipe.. up to you to mix it and add the right amount of suger

Mr. Anslow's response is right on. I would go one further. You must find out what you want from a MA, then find the school & teacher who will be best positioned to deliver that to you or help you find or develop it.
The problem is, many, myself included, didn't do any homework when picking a school. I simply joined where one of my best buddies went to. In the long run, it was exactly what I needed & couldn't have been a better fit. But luck & the fact that there were not really that many MA schools back then, played a part.

Today my standing advice for anyone, student or parent, looking for a MA school, is to simply make a list, visit them all, watching 1st, with no questions. Then going back several times, during several different classes & eventually ask a lot of questions, of teacher, students & observers.

As long as you find a good fit, & get what you need, most everything else is moot, as long as you are informed.
