    Searching in Toronto :) Hello

    Hello Everyone

    New here, obviously. Always been interested in studying a martial art but never had the oppertunity growing up. Currently I am 27 years old and have decided as one of my goals to do this.

    I am looking for something to study with an emphisis on technique and sparring. I did Muay thai once and could not handle the work out sessions, and have learned that I can not stress my body to that extent. Which is why i am here seeking your advice on a very chilling Dojo to learn some new skills. I do not want to rule out phyical training, but I would enjoy a simple style warm up, stretching etc.

    Some styles I am interested in are BJJ, ju sitsu, judo or karate although I am open to anything that is a good experiance.

    Body type tall and thin.

    ....maybe you should try yoga?

    Conversely, if you change your mind and actually want the invaluable workout that comes with any worthwhile arts, which appeals to you more? Beating someone bloody, or throwing them on their face and choking them?

              Well Gojujitsu.ca just moved a bit but they're still near Islington and Lakeshore.

              It's a mixture of Karate, Judo, and ju jitsu both traditional and some of that new fangled BJJ stuff


              And if you keep going west into Mississauga there' www.kombatarts.com

              Which has a Plethora of stuff to choose from.

              They're both good.

              ohh and also http://www.xtremecouture.ca/

              and www.torontobjj.com

              All of them have pros and cons. It depends on what you're looking for

                You've obviously never done yoga.

                      No sparring, but it's a hell of a workout. One of our Judo instructors is a yogi, and it supplements our training nicely.

                          Kyokushin, but that would apparently be a little rough for you. Most other styles are very hit and miss.

                            Listen to this man. Tell him more about what you're looking for.

                              Talk to oni-san (rummage around the Traditional Japanese forum and click his name). He's in Toronto and has done CLF Kung Fu with competitive sanshou kickboxing, boxing, Kyokushin, and good Shotokan Karate all in Toronto.

                              P.S. Do you have a medical condition or are you just out-of-shape? I say that because if it's the latter, most instructors would rather you try your best to keep up, but just take a quick breather if you really think you're going to puke/die. Things will not stay like that for very long if you're consistent and stick with it.
