Thread: Most practical forms of CMA?
2/10/2011 1:52pm, #11
The most practical forms of CMAs are the ones that train practically. Almost all CAN be trained practically—which doesn't necessarily exclude practicing forms and sets or even listening to someone go on about "chi"—the question is: do the schools convenient to your location train their CMAs practically?
So, what schools are by the OP?

Sanda/ San Shou is considered a style as much as Muy Tai I don’t think I would have specifically addressed the comment without the reference, even the post before yours referenced it as a style.
Sanda comps are not widely available for CMAs really they have to attend any event open to them. There are many styles that are not known for competition but that does not mean individual schools compete in various events.

Rather than deciding based on what's nearby, I figured I'd rather go the other direction and decide what's worth learning, and THEN pick based on the quality of what's nearby. If it's not something I'll enjoy, doesn't matter how good of a place it is, ya know?

as i have said before, i think anyone seriously interested in practical CMA should train judo first. after a few years of judo, you will be able to tell a good CMA school from a bad one, and will have a delivery system that will allow you to use your CMA better.
personally, i wish i had done judo before hung ga, but now that i am in judo i feel that i understand hung ga much more."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art. You don't truly love your children unless you allow them to get punched in the face." - chi-conspiricy
