do what feels natural to you.
I want to try it, but there's no Boxing gym around.
well then you have to go with whats close to you. you can't go wrong with MT. also get a heavy bag for home use and you'll be able to atleast increase you hand and leg speed.
My sister, might give me a punching bag she has.
I cant believe that, Boxing gyms are more common than Escorts in Manchester.
They say in Britain youre never further than 4 metres away from a boxing gym....oh wait, thats Rats.
Still though, they are extremely common. Where have you looked? Boxing gyms are not big on the internet like MA clubs, nor posters, they tend to go through word of mouth. Hell theres 3 boxing gyms by me, none of them even have a sign on the door. I just know of them because of friends etc.
Korpy, if there are no boxing gym's in your area; then it might be worth giving Muay Thai a look.
yeah, MT does encorperate boxing you know. plus the use of the other 6 limbs.
No Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Kenpo, Tang Soo Do, or whatever around me.
There's 2 TKD places, and I will learn TKD from one of the schools.
I wish there were Muay Thai, or Boxing gyms around.
your better off doing nothing at all than TKD, simply because of the fact that theres a 75% chance that its olympic TKD. and the 80% chance that its a mcdojo
or the 100% chance that tkd is better than nothing............
Actually no, it is not a Mcdojo.
The master there is more than qualified.
And tha instructors are great.
It's a real dojang with good real martial artists.
then that is your best bet, go there and check it out, they teach you some amazing kicks in TKD, some that can be applied to real self defense, and some that are more for show, but defenitely go for TKD for now, like i said, later on down the line, if you wanna try something else, go for it, but for now go with whats closer
I'm going to study there in a month or 2.
is this your attempt at sarcasim? i was being serious, even the TKD community will agree with me, too many Mcdojos and too much point sparring.
Listen to me, the place I'm going is not a Mcdojo.
I doubt theyd agree with you. Your post just blaitenly told him not to go to a TKD dojo because it MIGHT be a mcdojo.
Like Shantari said. If TKD is not your thang, still go and if you enjoy it stick at it, then if you somehow come upon a MT gym, youve already got the flexibility and youll find you progress quicker. So a head start basically.
Well said Jamo, something is better than nothing
actually 90% of the TKD practictioners i've talked to, even the hardcore ones still agree that olympic TKD is NOT real TKD and that there are too many Mcdojos.
I like TKD.
but i never said nothing is better than something, so yes. if it isn't a Mcdojo, then go.
