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.

Have you heard of David So?

If not, he's a YouTube comedian and musician. I watch him a lot. I find him really hilarious. Go watch him!!

But, viewer discretion is advised. Seriously.

Anyway, this year David began a series called "Funny, Fat, Fit" or "FFF" for short. He has made the resolution to exercise more and eat healthier, and in order to keep him accountable, he posts videos every week talking about his progress and other related topics.

Here is the first video:
