    Moving And Switching Schools

    Wow thank you all for the sound advice! By reading your comments I've realized that I'm worrying over nothing. I don't need to have a plan about my martial arts school before I move and I'll find the right one when I go. I'm not so sad about not achieving black belt before moving since I just...

    How does one train or exercise?

    Thank you all for the advice! I just got a weighted jump rope so now I do 50 of those as a warm up prior to stretching. It helps allot. I'm hoping I'll get my endurance up and be able to increase the number I can do to 100! :D

    Red Flag for School?

    Last night I found out how they determine when your ready to rank up or change belts. So what they do is a few mini tests on things like kicking, forms board breaks ext. If you pass the kicking test you get a strip of red tape on your belt. When you have passed all of the other tests and have...

    Red Flag for School?

    Who is grading? I believe its a mix of a grading panel and the teacher together as I've seen the table and the other judges when the child was given his black belt title. Although I've never asked so I could be wrong. Bad from - I suppose I'm basing that on my own expectations. Given me lack...

    which martial arts should invest my time in?

    I would suggest like others above have stated, look into what kind of schools are in your area and then narrow down the choices based on distance and style. Lets say you have 4 Taekwondo schools and 2 MMA and a few Karate near you. You would now look into which of those styles you prefer and go...

    Tell me about your first day of training..

    My first day was memorable to say the least! So I went in day one wearing some workout gear because I didn't have my uniform yet. The class was practicing kicks that day and I worked so hard to get these kicks right. Granted it was day one but I want to get my roundhouse kick as good as I could...

    Cardio or Muscle Training ?

    I think you should focus on both cardio and muscle building. I believe both have their merits in MA and feel that only doing one would not be as beneficial as doing both.
