Hi and welcome to the Martial Arts section.
There are hundreds of different types & categories or
variations within martial arts, most dating back over a
thousand years or more & trying to cover all of them here
would be an impossible task...
Whether you are doing Karate,Taekwando,kick boxing or Judo
One thing is for sure, the common reason or goal for taking an
interest in this subject.... Self discipline, commitment & control.
So.... Well done you ...for taking up the challenge
Most people think of Martial Arts as self defence or
sport and others like the competition or training side.
Some ladies now even use kickboxing tactics or Taebo
as a super fast way of losing weight & keeping fit.
Whatever you are doing & whatever level you have achieved, the main
thing is to enjoy yourselves and have fun but remember to take care &
