    I stop practicing Martial Arts in 1985. I am retired now and have time to work on a Martial Art.
    If you live in the Houston area please tell about your school.
    My back ground is Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo , Kung Fu long fist and some Alkido
    I am open to any form of Martial Arts, but not being a large man I don't like being on the floor.

    Interesting.

    Do you believe that being smaller would give you a disadvantage fighting with taking someone down, and or fighting on the ground?

    Yes, it has been my experience fighting on the ground gives a large advantage to the larger stronger man if he has any skill.
    While fight on the ground is a very important skill to know. I am in my 60's I don't plan to do any fighting. I just want to mainly do forms.

    If you just want forms then Combat Nation isn't the place. They actually do physical fighting techniques and contact training.

    Well, having been choked and joint locked by peoppmm half my size for the better part of my Bjj career, I respectfuonly disagree

    With that ssid,you should probably look for a Tai Chi school, or some other internal martial art.

    Don't worry it happens to all of us. What is worse is I sometimes leave out words.
