    A martial art that is very straightfoward is Seibukan Shorinryu Karate. You practice basics a lot but you get tougher and it is a lot of fun. Takes a lot of dedication though.

    I was just wondering how many of you have trained in Muay Thai? I have taken Karate and while I enjoyed it, I found it fairly useless in a real combat situation. It seems to be interesting that so many people on this forum don't seem to realize that most fights end on the ground and just knocking someone down is not a win, thus the reason for crosstraining in a grappling art.

    Derek - the art's practical applicability is mereley a question of teacher's approach to self defence, and your own dedication. Just as any art might "fail", there's a situation where that art might work.

    It seems to be interesting that so many people on this forum don't seem to realize that most fights end on the ground and just knocking someone down is not a win, thus the reason for crosstraining in a grappling art.

    I realize that most fights end on the ground when I see some FACTS, and not just stories based on whatever this or that guy has said.

    Peace.

    Most fights do end on the ground. All start standing up. Make of that what you will.

    I left the martial arts scene for several years due to an abundence of "mcdojo's" I became disillusioned with the arts.

    I am now looking for a martial art which will suit me. Hence the question:

    Which Art do you practice and what are the pro's and cons of your art?

    "make me a believer" <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

    I say do what works, and works for the right reasons.
    Also, enter competitions; if you can't compete, it's a HOBBY.
    I say find a good BJJ school, and study in both books and school, and eventually in competition. Figure out what works and why.

    There's just too much to explain here, but it starts with a good teacher and school that wants to teach you, not drive you away, so the first thing to check is the school's rate of turnover.
    If you have a problem with competition (as I did,) I suggest you try a good Aikido school.
    Whatever you do, don't be fooled by some mysticism; if the school can't explain their techniques in plain English without using magical words, or turn out winners in competition, it's no good.

    I think most fights end up on the ground because most people don't know how to stand.
