You can't study martial arts without practicing martial arts.

Yeah, there is absolutely no way you can understand the applications of a movement until you apply it.

*sigh* I AM OBSESSED WITH MARTIAL ARTS! i don't do it...yet. but i study it's concepts and purpose alot.





Then youíre not really unlike a lot of folks here, including many of those that actually attend martial arts classes.


Quote:


u don't think of JKD as a style, u think of it as an understanding. using different strategies in a simple way, is what JKD is about- i think. JKD IS a way of thinking, it is actually removing the view that martial arts is perfect, and is making it better.





I donít see it as a style. JKD is freestyle. It is ultimately about personal style and about finding the best possible ways of improving as a fighter.

I would suggest, if you at all can, that you go and try a class. I know people who have gotten so far into researching martial arts, that they haven't even started training because they are so confused as to where to begin.

There's a massive difference between jkd and wing chun nowadays. If you're looking for a jkd class and can't find one, then a wing chun class will take you down an entirely different route.
It's not really what art you attend, as long as the students are punching and kicking each other, as well as groundfighting, then you can't really go wrong. Wing chun won't teach you how to fight on the ground.
