    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    It depends where you live and whats available to you.
    In some cities Judo is not cheap at all.

    Is there a wrestling team you can join, is there a university near you that has club sports that you can become a part of for a small fee?

    "I just wasn't sure if it was something that could be learned without the aid of a regular class session."

    IMHO, I don't think its a good idea to try to learn grappling, or any martial art for that matter, without a qualified teacher and fellow students.

    You ought to be able to get into a judo or freestyle wrestling club for very little. Since funds are tight for you then that's what I'd consider.

    A year?

    Good plan, then you can waste the next one on TKD.

    Don't bother with grappling, you won't get anything out of it.
    You say what about my rice?

    For an art that doesnt require any protective gear, special equipment or exotic training, BJJ is fucking expensive.
    Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider

    Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

    The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

    dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

    Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
    I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
    what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

    Sorry for the late reply. I was out of town for the weekend.

    Lechuza, what is the difference between grappling and ground fighting? Does ground fighting imply striking is still emphasized while on the ground?

    Hapko, why won't I get anything out of grappling?

    How else are you going to win fights when you're blind drunk?
