    Okay, okay. I'm posting...

    I just wanted to say hello and get rid of the big yellow box. I'm a newb here. I've been studying karate for a whopping seven months so I'm not exactly am expert on the topic!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Bullshido, enjoy your stay.
    Friendly warning, the forum is ROUGH, so keep a tough skin and +10 armor of DONT GIVE A **** close by, and you'll be fine.

    Hope you're enjoying your exposure to Karate so far. Does your school do live sparring, or do they focus on forms and static kumite? (Sorry to say 2/3 Karate schools I've been exposed to were the latter.)

    Best of luck, comrade.

    Thanks for the reply.

    We do a large amount of sparring. Yes, we do some kata, but they are careful to point out the differences between sparring and kata. About half of each class is devoted to fighting/sparring (and self-defense drills) with the remainder spent on warmup/stretching, fitness and kata.


    I am pleased so far.

    Glad to hear it.
    Maybe later you will develop interest in other arts, and try mixing something else into the bag. If you get a chance, try Judo. As you will hear a lot, it's inexpensive, widely available (community centers and YMCAs :| ) and will give you some nice close up and ground game bonus in D&D MMA.

    Enjoy the site.

    Oh, I'm quite interested. I'm interested in Judo and perhaps Kali. There might be a YMCA opening up in my area soon, so we'll see...
