Hey ya'll I've a background in traditional Kenpo Karate, Ju-Jitsu, and Muay Thai as well as having dabbled into a little bit of other Martial Arts and I'm wanting to break into something like what Mike Chat does with his Extreme Martial Arts (XMA) putting a little more emphasis on the "art" side of it all and work into some showmanship with a careful blend of acrobatics or gymnastics. There isn't a facility to learn directly from a teacher or coach where I'm located currently, so I'm just curious to get in on the perspective of the more experienced who have already broken into something like cinematic martial arts and who perhaps came from a traditional or even self-defense background. What were some of the challenges you faced, best counsel you'd offer and resources you'd share to start kick start my newest quest? Hoping to glean some great insight and a general conversation. Thanks!
