Which Martial Art to Study? -- More Feedback/Answers

Two days ago I posted, "Which martial art to study?" - a reader asked me which I'd recommend. I shared my experience, but also reached out to the crowd here since I know we've got some martial artists who stop by.

Some fantastic replies.

I would tend to agree with Sebastian, it depends more on the teacher and your connection with him or her than the actual art, though some arts will be easier than others to master (depending on your body type).

There are only a few things I would add. First, Systema is not only an amazing fighting art, but actually can teach you how to be calmer. There are no forms or formal meditation or exercises, but the way it is taught and its focus on introspection achieves a lot of the same things. I have many years of kung fu and meditation experience and can tell you that it can give you amazing access to these spaces in a very short amount of time.

Career - P is for Presenter


Laura Delaney is a Presenter and Entertainment Journalist for RTÉ TEN. We caught up with her on her day job and career highlights...Bradley Cooper. Need we say more?

Who have you been most excited to interview?

It has to be the one and only Mr. Bradley Cooper. I’ve always been a huge fan of his. He’s an incredibly gifted and talented actor (and he’s not bad to look at either). From his hilarious performance in The Hangover to his Oscar-worthy nomination for Silver Linings Playbook, he’s always knocked whatever role he’s played out of the ballpark. Colin Farrell was also up there as one of my favourite interviews. He’s the full package – cool, intelligent, charming and above all he’s a terrific actor.

Do you get nervous before you go on air?
