    Ok so you have done whatever martial arts for 10 years. How do you see yourself? What have you achieved?

    Expecting my learnings is still not enough. I can see masters which trained for more than 20 years but they still don't see themselves as perfect. I probably achieved the satisfaction of me taking martial arts for that long. I probably gain knowledge for me to also share it. And my body is fit and healthy.

    Are you a black belt? A competitive fighter? Are you capable of self defence?

    You want to look at what you want to achieve as a martial artist so we can get an idea of what martial arts you might want to do.

    I'll stick with I want to learn it more on self-defence. I really not expect myself to compete :)
    From all the advice they gave me, I think of doing MMA. Do you have some insights of other martial arts?

    I do MMA. It works fine for self defence. And has a few cool things you can do with it.
