Wing Chun for about 4 years now.
Did someone say TKD was the most effective?
Is it just the TKD in my area that completely blows? I've never seen the Korean TKD teams, how are they different?
Do they throw Axe kicks all over the place and never put their legs down like the TKD people in my area?
yo dim mak, were can i learn some praying mantis. im too lazy to gout and search on my own, maybe you can let me in on its greatness and what not
TKD as a child
Wing Chun as a young teenager
Muay Thai since then.
I enjoyed them all at the time, and thought they were the most fun while I was doing them. I guess I took Muay Thai the most serious, and it has had the greatest impact on my life. I doubt this is the answer you were looking for when asking which is the "best", but it is how I judge an MA to be the best.

MMA Kid, I don't know where you can find good mantis instruction these days... most of it has been reduced to Crap Fu just like most CMAs these days. I like my school but it's hundreds of miles away from your location.
I didn't mean to offend you giving you the impression that I think TKD is bad, just saying that like CMA most TKD instructors these days are rather... meh. I know there are great TKD fighters out there and was hoping for some information on whose the real deal.
I was saying of all the TMA I did, TKD was the most effective. And it's just that most TKD in america blows, I quit because I trained in korea and then realized I'd never get that level of instruction where I lived.

Ah ic. Thanks for clearing that up. I'm hoping I eventually get around to visiting Korea. It would redeem all the family oriented TKD dojos in my area.
