    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Damn, whilst watching the last clip, the only thing flashing through my mind is: I'm starting my own fight system; MILF Self Defence.


    Anyway, based on the clips: too flashy, lousy aliveness, some combos/katas are complete fantasy. Find a good Muay Thai club. Read up on aliveness on the site if you're in doubt on what's good quality of training.

    Note: MILF means two totally different things in the US and in the Philippines where sikaran is from.

    If there is full contact sparring in your club, then I would stick with it.

    Good suggestions, all. I checked out the review pages here, saw that Scheer's here in Saskatoon has gotten some good reviews, so I might try that out. If not, I'll go see how my old Sikaran school is doing.

    It started out so well, when I saw the unfortunately too brief stick-work and the Filipino patch then....Is it a requirement that every kick be above waist level? I thought I was looking a TKD.

    So if I was the young OP and asked what the salty-dog MHB thought of this Sikaran stuff, I'd say study Arnis on the side and go all out balls-to-the-wall with Muay Thai. Your stand-up game (+weapons) would make you a walking KO factory.

    Sikaran shares roots with Taekwondo, hence the similarities.

    Stick with Sikaran.

    Most people are telling me to try something new. Can I ask why you say stick with Sikaran?
