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.

Organizing thoughts

On Kicking Thoughts

Since I decided to open my own Karate School, I've been reading articles, collecting information on marketing, training and anything else I've felt would be useful in my future endeavor.

Until today, I was using a draft in my gmail to track most of my links and thoughts. Unfortunately, there was some information lost due to this method, so I was forced to finally get organized.

My Google Drive is now the home of a new file structure for my business! And, I know where I can find the info I lost, so things are good.

I guess I learned my lesson; this time without any great catastrophe. Phew!
