    Thanks for all the insight everyone! I love this forum :inlove: I like how helpful you all are in dealing with my newb self :)

    I think I'm going to try out the BJJ as it is very close and I like the training times as well. I may see if he has a military discount or something too.

    Thanks,
    Quinn

    I will remain here, loved this forum since I found it. Just never really had anything to post because I didn't practice anything.

    Just my two mexican cents. TKD can be as efective as Karate, besides sport TKD has many things like karate, for example we have poomsae (kata), we have ones stpes (ipon kumite) three steps, sparring (full contact in WTS Style dojangs) self defense, sweeps,throws,arm bars,etc.

    Sport side it's not TKD only, in fact karate also has is sport side as judo does, as wusshu does,etc.etc.

    Before l joined the Army as a Combat Medic l looked around the Dallas and Denton area in Texas. After an exhaustive search l founded Mr. MICKY FISHER & SHIN TOSHI KARATE to be one of the BEST.Bar none! Even though I was afraid to get hurt l accepted that it was a contract sport. You are gonna get hit and it's gonna hurt. Yet l knew to be the best you have to learn from the best...and Mr. Fisher was the best! After studying Shin Toshi karate for several months before going into the military l learned that l made the best decision of choices in martial arts schools. I went around the whole Dallas and Denton schools including Arlington. I went into the military as a Combat Medic and earned my way up into the elite Special Forces. In these military units almost all the soldiers are Black Belts in one style or another. So we trained and mixed our styles however Shin Toshi and Kenpo karate always sermed to best the other styles for the simple reason...we took from every style and used it. Shin Toshi karate was known as the " BASTARD" karate because it did NOT stick to any style. All styles has a strong and a weakness. I helped train 2 young boys before retiring from teaching. Those 2 boys became State and International Fighting Champions! Not just for one year but for several. To this day...they are still champions. Well known and respected in the Austin area. So all this negative information about Shin Toshi karate is just people talking and blowing smoke up your ***. Try it and see for yourself. Don't let others talk or scare you away from any style because any style is better than none.

    Given the last post in this thread was over 6 years ago, I'm not sure how many of the posters will still be active for you to argue with.

    This thread "got" me for a few posts before I realized how old it was.
    However I have concerns about posts from people who say their art is the best based on how great they are.
    Also "taking stuff" from other arts is not a logical argument for competence or functionality.
    Just sayin

    My hope was to educate and inform. Not argue over this. Anyone should go and look for themselves and not take their word for it.
    By the way...l am NOT a WHITE BELT but a 3rd degree Black Belt. Even though l am ONLY a 3rd degree is because l refused to be GIVEN a higher degree and not EARNED. Many of my fellow black belts will tell you this. I am not ashame but believe in the old ways of earning it. And in my eyes at the time l didn't believe l was worthy enough. My mistake for l was not wise enough and should have listen to my martial arts instructors at the time.

    Sir,
    The late great BRUCE LEE did the same. The results speaks for themselves.

    The "white belt" is your rank on MartialTalk. It has nothing to do with martial skill, and everything to do with the number of posts you've made here. It's entirely meaningless, except to those of us who seem to have no life, and manage to reach the dizzying heights of MartialTalk Senior Grandmaster. Then all must bow before us. (Unfortunately, "all" doesn't seem to know that bit of etiquette. How rude.)

    Yes, and it was foolish for him to do, too.
