    I've always wanted to join a studio where I can train and beat something but not sure whats in mind for me.

    How many of you guys out there are currently in a studio or doing some sort of MMA or Martial arts thing? I have about 5 places to call to see what bests suits me. Not sure though. What do you guys think about MMA/Martial arts/ Studios?

    I enjoy martial arts. Most of my friends study their own style, some have multiple styles. We all have boken (wooden swords, katana style) That we spar with. Sometimes it gets intense with kyle, but he just got out of basic training a couple months back (Army brat). I like jeet-kun-do and mixed, he specialized in mui tia, and marcoh does kung-fu. On more than one occasion i have ended up with a cuncussion form sparring with them, and likewise with them. But what ever you are into, practive practive practice, and you must have dicipline.

    I just recently moved to VA but up in the NJ, PA area where I'm from I had a few unique studios that I used to attend. The one I personally liked the most may not fall into the category of what you might be looking for as it's not a competition martial art. It's Krav Maga... which if you are not familiar with it is less of a martial "art" and more of a defensive martial combat style. It was developed for the Israeli military about 50 years ago to give all practioners, no matter of size or gender, a lethal advantage against an attacker. Being a big guy I always end up being the class example of this advantage.

    I would suggest trying the martail art:

    'Tae-Kwon-Do'

    It is a south korean martiall art.

    I hear that style is very tough. I was considering that choice.. but no studio around here has that type of style.

    So around here they have 1 big MMA studio/gym, A few karate studio's and a couple kae- kwon - do. Im going to call them all up and see because I will only be able to attend twice a week due to school and work =(

    Yeah, just go at your own pace. Its tough, but it will benefit you in the long run.

    Heh,

    BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU, one of the greatest martial arts to go to America. I would highly recommend it. Your can go on youtube search royce gracie and see how many people he beat. Most of them outweighing him by 50 or 60 pounds. And he still won the first few UFC tournaments. Brazilian jujitsu is arguably the most effective martial arts ever.
