THere is such a big difference, you could almost consider doing both. I know I went for a "trial lesson" and spent a lot of time talking to teachers to see if I just wanted to add the BJJ as a second endeavor this past year. The only reason I didn't was because I couldn't work out the conflicts with the class times. I wish I could have worked it out. It would have added a lot to my training.

Hi. Do you do martial arts or are you just in the business? What martial arts do you do?

Loc: San Chung City, Taiwan
Greetings from Taiwan,
I am originally from California. I have lived in Taiwan for the past 14 years and I teach criminal law in Taiwan for the Ministry of Justice. I also write on both criminal justice issues and on Chinese martial arts history.

My wife and I do a regular piece for Classical Fighting Arts magazine and North Atlantic Books published our book Chinese Martial Arts Training Manuals: A Historical Survey a few years back.

I started Chinese martial arts in 1976 in San Diego where I studied Hung Gar. Then as time passed I trained in xingyi, pakua, taiji and most recently a bit of western boxing and BJJ.

I look forward to meeting the folks here.

Take care,
Brian

Hi...
Im 15 from the UK, but i dont do any martial arts. I plan on training at home by exercising and learning some new things with the help of this forum My favorite martial art is Muay Thai as it uses alot of parts of the human body to fight. Also its not every flashy, yet effective. Thanks everyone i hope of posting more on this forum

Not the best way to learn martial arts, but good luck. I'd consider changing strategies and getting a training partner at minimum and really trying to get to a school. For a complete beginner, style matters less than the ability to show up regularly to class and practice. Then when you have your own transportation you can pick and choose better and select the style of your choice more easily.
