Sitting in front of the PC, havocked, beaten, bruised, aching, BUT satisfied, I have a question, which do you think is the most effective, conditioning, entertaining, etc, etc, form of martial arts? Since a while I've bought a membership- card for the sports center in my local university campus. It's a great deal really, they fashion a wide array of sports and fitness, in which I can partake as much as I wish for only €80,- a year, while my own gym already costs €30,- a month. Suffice to say, I've been experimenting with all sorts of sports lately and I wanted to pick up a martial art again. I used to do Tae- Kwondo and I really liked (and still do, after trying it again) the speed and agility as well as the power focus of this sport. I also tried Judo and Jiu-Jitsu which were totally new for me and required a total different mindset then Tae- Kwondo because of the grappling and throwing orientation. I must say that I prefer Jiu- Jitsu because this does not focus on throwing and grappling alone, but also on kicking and punching. BUT, since I already made up my mind about Tae- Kwondo, I'm thinking about taking up Judo, partially because combining the two will be more effective technique- wise (Judo close, Tae- Kwondo far) but also because a Judo- workout focuses on strength and endurance which complements the Tae- Kwondo workout. Anybody here who wishes to support me in my choice? Or any martial- artists themselves who have different opinions and visions? - Joey. EDIT: - Grin.
