    Dual Martial arts advice needed: see body for details

    I would suggest American Kenpo. It's interesting and definitely a street art. It enables you to defend against big guys. They have forms and some of the schools are now also teaching ground fighting. Sifu

    KenpoTalk seeks your content!

    Interesting. I was taught by Al Tracy himself many, many years ago. He had a solid body back then. We used to freestyle very roughly. I held a board for him to break at a TV studio back in the old days. Sifu

    The law concering self defense and use of force without guns

    Well, I researched once long ago for my state of Washington. May not remember all, but in essence, some states let's you hold your ground and fight, the house intruder and some states say you have to keep backing up until you're out of your own house, which I don't like. Each state is different...

    Weight training to aid Muay Thai.

    In my art, Kenpo, over many years I always concentrated on strong back muscles. Still work out arms and legs, but back muscles I have found, stays with you forever. Sifu

    Weight Lifting & Krav Maga on same days?

    I'm 78 and I still practice my Kenpo and then I'll lift weights. You give yourself recovery days and that's good. My days for big muscles are over, but weights my strength. Can students of Krav Maga earn black belts, or is it just knowledge? Just curious. Sifu

    Martial arts journeys, and finding your "own" style...whats next for me?

    You have to find one you really like. There are hard styles, moving in straight lines and then there are ones that move in a circular pattern like kung fu. At age 26 I begin checking them all out. I would go to demos and read about them and just think how I would like it. Here's one thing, I...

    age and the martial arts

    A quick note. I started martial arts with Tracy Kenpo and after earning my black belt, I taught with Tracy. Later, I studied American Kenpo. I also studied a few months of Aikido. Kenpo techniques have kept as flexible as a much younger person. That's saying a lot at age 78. But, I feel if you...

    Journey to a new style...

    I've been studying and teaching for many years and I know of Oyama. It may be for you and it may not. The way I found my art was to check as many dojos as they were in the area.

    age and the martial arts

    I'm 78 and still going strong and fast in Kenpo. The type of art will also help determine how you will be in later years. Also watch your weight and don't develop a gut. Sifu
