    i guess it would be wiser to do mma, right?

    i guess i wanted the tradition, the secret and the beauty.... but i dont want to seem like a big *****, even though i am. truly.


    that was a good question mannetosin
    No need to do MMA. There are plenty of "traditional" martial arts seeped in culture.

    Kyokushin or its derivatives are your best bet of finding good "fighting karate". You'll learn how to fight, get in great shape, and still get to do your katas, wear a cool short-sleeved gi, and say Japanese words.

    Judo is another great option. You mentioned having a tight budget, and Judo schools are usually non-profit. Great art for sport, fitness, self defense, whatever. Also contains katas, though they are usually at a higher belt level.

    There are definitely good kung fu schools out there, but most of those train more like kickboxing gyms from what I hear.

    Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand, and is in all actuality older than most "traditional" martial arts.

    i dont have time, as a serious anthropology student, to dedicate my life to competitive fighting, but for fitness, balance, coordination, and strength and enlightenment, i did want to devote myself to a martial art or two. its just a dream
    Many people train recreationally, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    If you want to be a champion, it takes tons of dedication and training, no matter what your art is. I'm assuming you'd enjoy most martial arts that train hard, no matter what they label their training as. Make sure you get along with the instructor and enjoy training. There's nothing quite like a hard training session.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to train in.

    Make believe. Like I said you should do dance; or if you're allergic to sweat, drama.

    I don't have time for this. I have too many 19 year old sluts to bang.

    you know what.... im young. kind of.... i want to hit bags filled with metal pellets and rip at trees. i think im going with animal kung fu

    this isnt shotokan in the 70s, as nice as the katas are, i want the brutality of traditional iron body training. i can always do shotokan when im older. i just hope i dont make my sensei feel bad. i dont think i can train with him anymore

    Ok maybe I dont know what to say but I want the intensity of the five animal kung fu. I will simply try the class out and see how I like it. I do like shotokan a lot but I want to give this a shot...

    Dude, I've been told that I won't be back on the mats for six months. I'm pretty much trapped on the internet with this **** right now.

    If that's what you want out of the experience, great.

    Then, after five years, you can go to a boxing gym, and experience the brutality of being knocked out by a 15 year-old with six months' training.
