Martial Arts --> What suits me best?

I want to kick some ass.
I love boxing.
Want to spar. Must spar. Wax on, wax off.



Seriously... what do you know about Martial Arts? Have you practised any? What is best for me? Want strength training, discipline, combined with cardio and some contact.

Angel, look into Krav Maga. It is an Israeli form of martial arts that incorporates the best of all styles and combines defense with offense. It is an excellent work out and you will gain incredible confidence in your ability to defend yourself.

My wife also took the class and longs to return.

im not really sure, i rarely see my brother at home, but from what i've seen its probably rough, but i dont know. he went to thailand to train for a few weeks in that type of kickboxing. i've never seen him fight before, i'll have to ask him. i'll let you know what he tells me.

Is kickboxing good for self defense?

Does anyone know a good martial art that covers self defense? I live in a very dangerous city...

my last boyfriend was a martial arts instructor. i took many, many classes with him. great for the body and the soul (ass kicking is very therapeutic).

that whole controlling your emotions thing got old really quick, though. i never knew what the hell he was actually thinking.

have you ever taken a 'tae bo' class ?

its a great workout that gives u confidence and teaches u real moves form all kinds of martial arts

if you are looking for more of a workout then go for that as its a mix of a lot of things.

if not then kick boxing is very good

i used to do tae kwon do, and judo both were good. though not as active as kick boxing.

One of my employees takes mui (or muay) thai kickboxing. He says it is very similar to Krav Maga in terms of the punching and kicking combinations. I don't know if it is too violent, but if you trained in either of these disciplines, a smart person wouldn't mess with you.
