One of the questions i get asked most frequently, in several different variations is about which martial art an individual should study. Generally which martial art, and more importantly which school to choose are fundamental decisions someone should make. My answer is usually something along the lines of, “choose the school and the system that you are going to stick with and stay with it for the rest of your life.”
The answer is going to be different for every person. I will attempt to is give you a set of general guidelines. I will talk in very broad terms about different martial arts, and what to look for in a school. ultimately every teacher, at every school, in every system is going to be completely different.
