From the ground up

Hello , new guy here.

Today i decided i no longer want to feel that if the situation arised i couldn't really defend myself effectively. I also decidad i wanted to experience what my body is capable of and hell, i miss martial arts...i haven't done any for a decade now.

So i'm pretty much starting from the ground up.

After reading around ive heard a mix of Muay Thai and BJJ is the best thing to start off with.
If not, pick my styles.

Thanks in advance

The style that suits you best is what you will stick with and work hard at. Muy Thai is a very good standup discipline but then again so is boxing and kickboxing if mastered. On the ground I would definitely suggest BJJ. Even if you were a Judo fighter or a wrestler, BJJ is needed now. If you have anymore questions just ask!

Good luck and train hard!

See what I do, is get drunk when I go out so I when I get beat up the next day, I can blame it on that.


Where's SWP? Is SWPin here? I'm getting drunk off of white wine.

I agree, and it couldn't hurt to watch some of Bas's bar fight DVDs.

Basic boxing couldn't hurt, either.

It better be pinot grigio, Corn. Don't tell me it's box of wine!
