    i used to to kickboxing but developed schizophrenia due to the high stress environment and abuse by my coaches.
    Also i got my septum deviated by the sport so i will not come back.
    I still miss the adrenaline rush of sparring though.

        Not OP, but based for doing cool looking flashy kicks.
        Practical in a street fight?
        Probably not, but better than nothing since at least you'll still be in better shape than somebody who doesn't train anything.
        If you're looking to be doing self-defense/street fighting, most martial arts aren't really the way to go. Just do boxing.

    I used to do TKD. It was fucking great for mobility and flexibility but shit as an actual martial art. Kickboxing is where it's at for me.

    Trained Karate and Kickboxing. Tried also Aikido
    Karate was gay, would love to train if I would have dojo to do kata alone, tho training kata with people or karate sparrings is just gay
    Kickboxing was okay cause I'm great kicker, tho I always worry to much that I ll hurt people so I always loosed sparrings when I checked up on people
    Aikido is just rolling for retards, not worth it
    Also capoeira isn't martial art, it's gay ass brazilian way to cope with lack of culture

    Sumo looks like a ton of fun but I don't really think it's a martial art.

      I tried boxing and BJJ before landing at a jujutsu club, trained there for about 4.5 years. I was planning on going to my first every competition, trained really hard for 3 months. Then two weeks before the comp, I caught a mild lung infection. It wasn't anything serious and 3 weeks on antibiotics helped, but I wasn't going to be able to compete when I could hardly breathe after a minute of sparring. I was so fucking mad that I quit. It's been 10 years since, I'll be stepping back on the tatami in January. Can't wait.

      Why not?

      If getting fat and slapping unclothed men is a martial art, consider me the deadliest man alive.

      Sumo only works in real situation if they're against a dumbass who tries to charge frontally and wrestle them.

        Sumo is the antecedent of daito-ryu jujutsu which is the antecedent of judo

    Recently started doing ITF Taekwondo again after ~10 year of abscence, inmediately got to spar with a 4th dan and got my ass whooped into next week. Surprisingly my kicks and flexibility are in surprisingly decent, considering I didn't train in any martial art since then
    Since I decided to join again for 3 times a week, how do I incorporate it into my lifting? Currently doing PPL 6 times a week, is lifting and martial arts on the same day feasible, especially if they're pretty much back to back?

      How cardio intensive is it? There should be a sizeable gap between cardio and weights otherwise you get the interference effect whereby you get reduced benefit for both compared to the benefits from only doing one.

        >how cardio intensive is it
        Very, 10min warm-up, 1 hour of pretty much non stop striking, against mats, pads and then sparring, last ~20 minutes are forms
        Unfortunately I can't space them out due to work, so I guess I'll have to split them

      both
      MT has kicks, elbows and knee, also good focus on clinch and other subtle differences
      not too hard to incorporate boxing into MT but you need to do certain adjustment when you get into the ring for each

      Karate is hit or miss, some just do folk dances, some actually fight.

      Muay Thai already includes punches which is everything boxing has, Muay Thai is just much more complete.

        The best type of karate is Kyokushin or some derivative. Kudo is a good Japanese option too

      There's nothing stopping you from trying it or anything else, if anything the more you wait the more you're gonna kick yourself later for not trying
      Shits just pure fun and a great way to do cardio, which is a godsend for me because fuck running or biking

      Only very light contact sparring. Obviously you can also get injured during regular striking exercises but the highest risk of injury lies in sparring, so try to minimize it

    I do aikido for throws and countering plus wing chun for striking, which makes me pretty much unbeatable in most arenas of combat

    I used to do aikido, instructor was very well aware of the bullshido reputation and made sure to teach it properly. He also had a background in judo and would show us some of that but would stick to aikido. If someone was halfassing a throw or grab he'd lay you out on the mat

      Boxing and MT are great, no disagreement there. Do you know how fucking hard it is to actually knock someone out though? Not to mention breaking your knuckles on a motherfucker's skull hurts, and the aftermath looks bad if the police get involved.

      Show me a dude who'll jump back up to fight after he's been thrown on his back/head on hard ground. Also easier to get away with. "He just fell over, I dunno."

        Oh right, you're a noob, duh. Sorry, I mainly talk martial arts with other practitioners. If you're starting out then yeah, focus on one and then spread out.

    How cringe would it be to train as a southpaw when you're right-handed?

      Doesn't matter to start. You should get comfortable in both stances though.

        Switching stance mid combo or at the same time as a strike is based and kinopilled.
