    Do you determine this by watching or "sitting in" on some classes. Or asking the instructor if you can participate?

    Hands on VS. evaluating something without getting in the trenches and trying it, seeing and feeling if it works for YOU.

    How can you determine anything by watching for a few sessions. I can't wait to hear the excuses why "watching" is best.

    Here's what I do:

    Listen to what Jamoke says.

    Do exactly the opposite.

    You can see it from a different angle!
    You can laugh at their X-blocks.
    You can go to sleep.
    You can rest while they train then ask to spar them at the end of class when they are tired so you can beat them in.

    hahaha...got a good laugh there

    but in seriousness i think you have to do what you enjoy obviously. When you were growin up and you played video games did you like the quick guy with low damage or the slow guy who was really strong? Its kinda like that. I would consistantly pick a quick guy in video games and so naturally when i went to martial arts i wanted to train things that would focus on speed rather than brute strength. Hopefully this makes sense. Its all just going with your preference.

    I always prefered the middle guy really, medium speed and medium strength.

    I want to be a ninja.

    Actually I think it makes sense to maybe watch one or part of one class and then participate in another before making any choices. This may prove helpful as Piz said you can see techniques from different angles (I find its always good to step back and watch once in awhile). Also watching for a little bit may give you a better idea for the spectrum of things taught in the class. Often senior students and lower ranked ones are doing completely different things for different reasons, it can be helpful to watch the whole spectrrum. After that I agree to jump right in.
