New guy

I just came across this site looking for a new place to train. Looks pretty good so far. (tons of ads though)

A few years back I got out of training, I was taking Karate, BJJ, and some Muay Thai. I since have been just serious with the gym. I go 5-6 days a week, and I don't like how sluggish I feel i've become with all the added mass.

So I want to get back into a Martial Art, to get my speed and agility back. I'm not crazy about competing myself, but I do follow UFC. I don't really know what I want to get back into for sure, except for Karate I will not take again for sure. I've been reading up on Jeet Kune Do, and it interests me quite alot. I definately want to get back into the jujitsu though, and the Thai boxing maybe.

So any educated advice about any of the other MA's I may be interested in, or about the ones I have in mind would be greatly appreciated. That's why i'm here I guess.

P.S. Merry Christmas

Have a good time.
Just a word of advice though... If you didn't like Karate because you thought it was slightly unrealistic and didn't translate well into real life situations (which isn't true)I can't guarentee you will find what your looking for in a style of Kung-Fu. I would get back into Muaytai if I were you.

I thought that was the purpose of JKD? Was that Bruce Lee got rid of all the uselessness from the other forms of MA's, and let people mold their own styles?

No dude. That's a Photoshop.
