Most people who have never stepped into a martial arts class - but want to give it a try - have several questions in mind that they may be afraid to ask, because they don't want to look foolish.

Well, the only foolish question is the one you don't ask.

This thread is for all those questions you have about MA. Rest assured that they will be answered in a frank and respectful manner. Everybody was a beginner at some point.

Maybe you want advice about what 'style' to train in. Or maybe you want to know what kind of shape you need to be in. Perhaps there was some lingo you heard that you'd like explained in simple terms.

This is the place for all those questions you want answers to, but (until now) were afraid to ask.

We're here to help.
In my walk in the martial way, my hope is that as long as I live, I will always be a beginner.
