    newbie help...

    this is my first post.. total newb here... anyways i am currently taking a martial art, one of the only ones i know of that are local... and when i move to college i want to keep up the whole martial arts thing.... what i need is help decided what kind of martial art i should take while im down at college..... so here is my problem....

    I'm fresh out of highschool... and around the begging of june i went to check out this kung fu school... (i was pretty pleased just to have one near my area...so i dont think it would have mattered what it was...if the price was ok and the arangments, i would do it..anyways) it was sheng chi (name of the school) shou shu (the martial art)

    so I take one free lesson and i like what i hear and learn... about 14 days of 1 hour classes, and 1 test later. its now july and im starting to worry about what im going to do when i leave for college in the spring of 07.. by then i will most likly be a purple or a blue, belt... but now i will have to start all over at a new school.... i checked out some schools online... and found three that i know of...

    (if anyone knows of any martial arts schools in the concord/bay area.. of california please tell me..thanks)

    so i'll be living in concord area... and i know of an AKIDO school.... a.. kung fu WUSHU school..(not sure what wushu is exactly) and another shou shu.. but its like 50 miles away... im not sure if i want to take bart every day for that... (but it is about 20 miles out of the way on my ride home from school... (college in san fransisco..)

    so.. i was wondering what everyones oppinion is on my current problem.. and what i should do.... should i go with akido or wushu.. cause its closer... or are those arts so bad that i should take the extra 20 miles to keep going in my current art....?

    thanks for any help....

    Right, let me just find the list. Ah here it is.

    1. Read more, post less. (and if you have to post, do it in newbie town)

    2. Search function noob.

    3. Look, it's the number three! (courtesy of yrkoon9)

    I'm too tired to put a well thought out post here, so all I'll say is you need a "live" training environment as per Matt Thornton. Type his name into youtube or google video if you don't know what I'm talking about.

    If fighting and combat is your goal then find a local kickboxing/bjj/muay thai/mma/freestyle wrestling/submission grappling school. I'd like to recommend a JKD or Kempo school, but it seems this last decade or so most of those such schools have decayed and have become BS. Read more, and find similar posts to the one you made.

    read this

    judo is awesome, as is bjj

    aikido is "suxor"

    as is kung fu, as is tkd, as is ect

    the "real" version probably exists somewhere but is nearly impossible to find, and is alive. if it is not alive it sucks. it is alive its good. general; rule. and since humanity is flawed someone will find a flaw
    it

    If you train alive, your skills should transfer to a new school. So you have nothing to worry about, right?

    well if thats the case... im doomed! :flipando: i have already accepted the fact that my grammer/spelling (well just about anything to do with english class) is so close to retard, it scares me... but then im usualy to lazy to care... sooo... yea.. :XXsmoker:

    anyways..
    robot jesus- thanks for the link... it helps alot...

    one thing that bothers me, about shou shu... is everything is almost choreographed... example--

    instructor: u hit the guy here (he falls back) then since he is falling back u hit him here...
    me: --wait wait... what if he doesnt fall back...

    and when we were practicing blocks the other day... i got punched in the nose (we decided to try the move a little faster)...but in order for the block to work.. i have to have good timing and speed.... hmm.. well where do i get this timing and speed... ---not from doing this move slow motion....

    anyways onto the subject.....
    i found a BJJ school in san fran that might be close to my
    collegel.... which is pretty awsome... because of what i have heard BJJ is very usefull... and the alive training itself is a major plus....

    so thanks for the help here everyone... i will be moving myself to newbie town now... ...but quick question? should i quit shou shu... then when i do move in a year i can do BJJ.. or should i stay in it for the fitness and my own person practive i can have at the qwoon.... thanks!
