    If you've tried TMA and don't like it, try MMA instead.

    dude. Use periods. It helps a lot.

    South Florida? Try Muay thai... can't find it, BOX! I'm serious. Just learn your front kick (vary as push or footjab) and a low roundhouse to the thigh. Find a guy to train with ya for the kicks if you're only doing boxing.

    Learn at least some grappling. Try Wrestling, Judo, Jiujitsu (preferrably brazilian/gracie/machado/whatever). Submission wrestling is good too.

    And whats most important - conditioning.

    Katana, on 540 kicks: "Hang from a ceiling fan with both hands. Flail your feet out and ask people to walk into you as you hit their face."

    Hey gypsyking,

    I live in queens and train at 2 schools in the area. If I were in brooklyn I would definitely train with Louis Neglia. Neglia is a world champion kickboxer and 8th degree goju. My Sensei is training partner (who is 3rd degree goju not from neglia) has been there 6 months and is a white belt with a tip. He is having trouble keeping up with the grueling workout because he is in his late 30's and a little out of shape. It's a great school though, full contact an very serious. I think you can check it out at louisneglia.com

    Why can't you use punctuation?
