    Guess that will learn me to check someone's post history before responding.

    P.S.
    I tried talking to God about FMAs but he just responded with, "Is that the one with the sticks?", so I gave up.
    Nah.

    you did the right thing.

    And God was busy talking with Inosanto.

    Is it wrong to think that people are simply uninformed, rather than trolls? ****! I can't believe this crap got past my troll-dar.

    Asshole. Go take capoeira and bagpipe lessons.

    First) Would some on tell me what the ^%$%^$ is a troll
    Second) The thing that sucsk most in my postions is that I have read to much on the sidelines and tired of indecision.. just waiting for the time and money to go and learn to fight.

    By the way thanks for all the input

    To all the people recommending boxing for a "base" martial art, I commend you :)

    Whenever people talk about how they're considering getting into kickboxing, I always want to recommend they train at a boxing gym.

    Not only does it have all the advantages of technique, footwork, cardio, etc., it will give you a very solid perspective of what fight training SHOULD be like if you plan on training in other martial arts.

Can anyone make a a good case for any of these stlyes to train in. By the way I am built on the heavierside and natually not that fast. I know I need more speed. Thank You
