As the title says, I'm new to the forum and kind of new to martial arts.
I boxed a bit some years ago and I've been taking Krav Maga lessons for a month or so, building on some lessons I've had sporadically over the last two years.
I'm keen to learn a traditional martial art and I'm looking around at gyms at the moment.
I quite liked Fighting Fit Martial Arts in Manchester and also Impact Martial Arts in Eccles for their ninjutsu and jeet kune do classes respectively.
Basically it's not just the self-defence I'm looking for, I'm looking to improve fitness generally and maybe even try out a little MMA on an amateur basis (at almost 28 and being pretty much a blank canvas in respect of martial arts, I think fighting professionally would be out of my reach).
So, I'd be grateful for any suggestions you may have, recommendations as to schools, disciplines and people to look out for.
Also, I've been vegetarian for only a little over a year so any recommendations as to diet for martial arts training would be most welcome.
I'm grateful in advance for your responses.
