Hi my name is Ian Adrian and I live in Brisbane Australia. I have trained in MA from 1981 with TKD recieving a Second Dan then I trained in Shin Yu Kai Karate-Do obtaining Sandan. SYK was a Shotokan derivative, although Goju kata were latter added. Both schools were independents and are now defunct.

I have been out of training for the last 5 years due to illness and a knee injury (a sick fat man should not try jump kicks). I am getting well again and am looking for a club, I was thinking of going back to TKD but since reading many posts here I have decided to give Kyokushin a try, I am very nervous but perhaps it will be the most alive choice I may have made concerning MA.

Peace
Ian

Hi Ian.

Kyukoshin is a great choice. There are quite a few members on the boards who practice that style who'd be glad to talk shop with you if you do indeed go that route.

Have fun.

good luck with the search. if you're in melbourne there are heaps of other alternatives if you're after something different.

Hi Ian,

Welcome to Bullshido. Congratulations on the great choice you've made with Kyokushin.
Good luck with your training and I hope you stick at it, and remain injury free.
The PT forum here is full of handy injury prevention tips, stretching etc.
