Which to do?


This is a tough question for everyone. Personally, I'd love to have the time to practice ALL the arts, but father time will not permit such an endeavor. I would suggest that you not heavily weigh information that states "we only use this art for self defense" because they all claim that. Also consider this, there are many ways to hit, kick, parry, throw etc... The trick is to find an art you feel "fits" you. That is, one that makes you feel good about what you are learning. I don't believe anyone can honestly say one particular art is "better" than another. What does "better" mean to you? Better at what? I suggest you spend some time in each style, perhaps you'll want to practice both........

2 cents worth

Good luck in your quest,

Dan Pokorny
