I have never studied/trained any form of martial arts and i will be turning 25 this march i know stretching/flexibility will be an issue, what other issues will i run into?
thanks in advance
I take Western kickboxing once a week at the dojo where I also train MMA and karate, and we do throw knees and elbows.
