    Austin JKD

    I found two. Any thoughts on either? One is Austin Impact, which seems to follow Bruce's philosophy pretty carefully. The other is Parra Academy, which also offers classes for children.

    Now you're speaking my language. We had a praying mantis school in CO but they have no classes for children. And, for me, this was a deal breaker.

    I believe the two are different. However, the one Korean martial art that intrigues me is this one. Tukong Moosul Martial Arts | History Of course, soryu, jeet kune do, kajukembo, or muay thai may work for me paired with kali and a bit of judo.

    Actually, I don't move around a lot. Only three places in my lifetime so far. And that is the only few times I have traveled. MD, NV, CO, back to MD to care for an ailing parent.

    Just checked out the website and bookmarked it. So glad to see that they offer classes for kiddies as I have a few and finding a school where we can all go to is key.

    Quite a few. Started out years ago with Hung Fot in Maryland. I have studied TKD, both ATA and ITF, Muay Thai (which I really like a lot), and and one of the Kwons. Also studied another type of Gong Fu by an Asian GM years ago. He passed away and never appointed any students to teacher so that...

    I've been looking at a Shaolin Kenpo school, a Tukong Moosul school, a Muay Thai school, a few kung fu schools, a jeet kune do school, and a few judo schools. I have even found a decent kali school but as I will be new to the area I'm flexible. Any thoughts on where to start my journey in...

    Judo or Taekwondo for best self defense?

    I personally believe that any martial arts program should incorporate weapons training. And this is why me and my boys, may choose one martial art but we will also take a Kali or Escrima class.
