This is something new wukka. The gym only opened 2 months ago. I may or may not go back to TKD, because I felt it offered me very little in the way of realistic self-defense training. The emphasis in TKD is to prevent a fight from going to the ground, however this is confusing because a)Olympic TKD sparring is full contact, and b)if you get attacked for real, likely the first place it will go is to the ground. If you have any etiquette tips other than the obvious for being a female in a grappling gym, (this is by no means the first time I've been the only woman in a class full of dudes) it would be appreciated. They have been very respectful and patient re: grappling with me, BTW.
I prefer distance running in order to maintain the grip on my MILF stamp LMAO! I always forget the numbers and effort vs. recovery periods for HIIT. Also I would like to run another 10K and maybe a half marathon one day, hence the distance obsession.
