    Plus heartrate monitor for the win.

    I'm kinda done with Karate. I'd like to do something else like Kali or Silat. And I'd love to learn some ground work, but my cardio has to be in a really good place before I hit it hardcore.
    Tai Chi, yes, but only if you can get an Instructor who has a combative background and clearly understands the martial aspects, otherwise it's just a fluffy dance.

    It will also help you in Mindfulness, an important aspect.

    Good Luck.

    If they do push hands or Lei Tai then yes. Otherwise it is mostly just meditative movements. Good for other stuff, but not fighting. It could set you a good starting point to move into a school that uses it to fight. Just as long as you understand that until you are doing push hands or Lei Tai, you are not learning to use it for "fighting".

    Congrats on getting back in the game and not using the MI as an excuse to give up!
