Speaking of adding a new martial art, the gym I have just joined does Thai Kick Boxing, and I can have a free lesson a week. Now I love the idea, but will it mess up my karate? Cause, frankly, I have watched some of these guys, and I could (to sound American
) whale on most of them. They look like they are having great fun though, and the instructor looks a lot better than most of the class. And another possibility is boxing. Taught by a vegan of thirteen years standing, with all the other students big blokes (a lot of them bouncers.) Wouldn't it do me a lot of good to train with men? (I do anyway, but these guys are more likely to be street in their style, and don't look like they pull their punches.) Again, would it mess up my karate?
It is just, it is down the road, free, and I love fighting. That makes me sound so thuggish.
But you know what I mean. But I really want to keep my karate as clean and smart as possible.
