    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    Lau Gar actually kinda sucks. The main art has been absorbed into several other families including Hung-Gar.

    In your MT training you might find that your Lau Gar training bestows one or two advantages.

    Dunno exactly what those would be, but... it sounds good.

    Omega, how do you stack up Hung Gar to other arts, and what in your opinion makes Lau Gar sucky? (Hopefully this question is close enough to the OP's post to keep it on topic.)
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Lau Gar is limited in it's approach. Pretty much doesn't allow a person to discover different movements that may work better for them. Hung gar at least allows you to discover different movements and emphasizes a degree of health and athleticism to become competent in it.
