Yeah, Karate isn't good. Unless you're talking about Goju Ryu Karate, the original Karate style from Okinawa. That's some pretty intensive stuff, but the style is generally full of openings. That's why most serious Karateka also learn Judo and other grappling techniques to prepare for other situations. I took a class in Goju Ryu once and I couldn't move my legs the next day.

Me myself I would go for kickboxing if I was you I don't know whether it is just my class but it encompasses a lot of different scenarios and techniques to get you through most things, like in my class we practice suprise attacks, being attacked when you're not prepared, grapples, weapons etc..., seems to focus more on real life situations like brawls, back-to-back, bars etc...

Also quite a lot of sparring is involved so it helps you practice fighting with other people, I find my kickboxing class pretty fun, it isn't too formal but we still have a certain level of discipline, everyone is friendly and helps each other and I come home feeling good even when I have bruises

Goju Ryu Karate? I just looked it up in my yellow pages, apparently it's too awesome for my little town Oh well, Judo sounds like its the most practical (from the slightly bias view of an apparent Judo enthusiast ) so I might give that a try later on. Thanks for the help

Judo enthusiast I may be, but at the same time I believe other styles could be more useful for other situations. For instance, Aikido prepares you better against foes with weapons, and Bujinkan Budo is even better than Aikido in that respect, but it's a LOT harder to come by a proper Bujinkan dojo.

That sounds really good. Kick boxing sounds good for basic skills, I guess its a good thing to try first.

Hmm yeah, I'd like to do it for more than just self-defense, I know i said focusing on self-defense before but i was referring to stuff like Karate that seems to be more about the art than actual 'combat skills'. I think the culture and tradition behind the martial art is something i'm looking for as well, so maybe i'll just focus on one in the near future (unless I am surprisingly really good at it, though I don't have high hopes for my inner ninja emerging )

If you're looking for the cultural and philosophical aspect of martial arts as well, then I really do suggest Bujinkan Budo. No other style encompasses the philosophy and techniques of martial arts as completely as Budo. You learn everything, such as striking, grappling, defence against weapons and their use as well.

I yellowpaged it and apparently there are 2 Bujinkan Kokusai Dojo places in my town. Ahh now I'm confused again I guess the best thing is to just go and try them and see what I like the best.

Yeah. Most martial arts Dojos offer the first lesson for free. Some might charge you a fee but others don't. Anyways, try what you will and see which you like best. I preferred Judo because truth be told, I don't think I've ever had more fun in any other martial practice

You just gotta go find yourself a mixed martial arts studio. It gives you a nice all round education.

The best class I ever took was a "karate" class offered by my university. The teacher treated it like an MMA class and I learned a lot. I've been dying to get back into a class like that since.

I'd say rather than choose what style of martial arts to learn it would be better to choose on the basis on what the school is like.

My advice is to go to each of the centres near your area and check them out individually, preferably an advanced class. This'll give you a better idea of what you can hope to achieve by learning there, as well as learning what kind of students there are and what kind of atmosphere it has so you can determine whether or not you'll be comfortable there. And yeah, stuff like location and cost will matter as well. No use picking a style then finding out that the closest place that teaches it is a hundred miles away and costs a million a week.

Don't be afraid to ask the teacher any questions, either. There's no such thing as a stupid question. And likely the teacher has probably come across every single question beforehand.

Well after consulting my trusty yellow pages there are about 5 places near me that have what i'm looking for, and i've rang/checked out them all. so hopefully over the next month or so i'll be able to go check them out as the first lesson is free for them all. one place even provides a free uniform for your first lesson Yeah i've already tossed some places just from a phone call, with places that have like 5 people or like no girls. i think i will definitely prefer the bigger classes (less attention on you ) but it will ultimately be determined by price, as well as if i like it of course

I was watching the Fist of Legend (1994) recently on TV and I realised that there are MANY similarities between Aikido and Taijiquan. So why one is promoted as a martial art, while the other is promoted as a health and fitness exercise?

Also, Wing Chun and Krav Maga is based pretty much on the same concept - dealing the largest amount of damage in the shortest amount of time; no gimmicks, no nonesene. Wing Chun is very defensive, while Krav Maga is more offensive, Wing Chun readies for moves by keeping limbs tense, while Krav Maga readies for moves by keeping limbs at ease. Isn't it funny that despite having different roots, hand-to-hand is extremely similar almost everywhere?

I believe the actual name is the Hurricanrana, but there may be a foreign term for it as well. This seems to be a crazier variation too, where it catches a moving target off balance. That's one heck of a move there.

Necro-thread revival! So while "vacationing" back in my hometown of Vancouver, I went and undertook a few classes in activities I always thought were cool but never had time to do while I lived here, namely Archery and Swordplay.

Archery was straightforward and easy to pick up, albeit difficult to master. The Swordplay was another matter. I went to a Western swordplay academy here called Academie Duello. It was a decent exercise and I learned a lot .. in particular that using a rapier is one of the most uncomfortable things I've ever done. Additionally, one of my friends interested in this pointed me towards this:

Battle of Nations
