    he said traditional striking art because his options were traditional striking arts. Boxing and muy thai can be considered traditional as well but they are incorporated into MMA which can is considered modern. Of course, that last sentence is just a theory and it's hard for me to really explain the difference between modern and traditional martial arts. Sorry.

    Im in an area that doesnt have a boxing gym. At least not one nearby. I said traditional because I actually enjot the environment brought by it. I came from a backgroung in Western sports. So at first the Dojo etiquette and kata, etc. was somewhat strange. Over time I came to really appreciate it.

    If pushed, then do the Shotokan. There is a connection to Judo there.

    but if you do shotokan pleeeease be one of those guys who actually throws combos in sparring. the fencing style lunge is just awful.
