Im joining a martial arts program next month im scared and excited at the sametime

They have a six week program for around 80-90 dollars, 2 times a week, i always wanted to learn martial arts, im getting a email from the master hes going lay out what to expect from the program, i told them i had a mental illness schizophrenia, they said that doesnt disaqualy me from joining this is great news. Im doing it just to do something different, im getting bored with my workout routine need something new, this will be very interesting and exciting at the same time. Also its located in my town, so i dont have to travel far. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

That sounds ideal. That’s pretty cool that they didn’t mind you having schizophrenia.

yea, they said before i join there going to let me know what to expect, before i make a decision because i have schizophrenia. But i still going to join. Schizophrenia is not going to stop me from learning martial arts, im on medication now so its controlled.

good for you i would like to try martial arts, the only program around here only teaches brazilian jiu jitsu. i dont know if i want to get on the ground and wrestle, i would rather learn to strike with kicks and punches.

Wow thats cool, i was always interested in kung fu, i was always fascinated by the shaolin monks, I follow there ways, peace and harmony and positivity. I think the more positive you are and humble the more stronger you get, look at them they can break bricks with there bare hands, and there bodies at take a huge beaten without damage this is proof.

dude anything works, no fighting style is the best. I think in my opinion just learn a fighting style you like and feel comfortable with. Just try it out.

Everybody there will probably be in the same boat. If there’s one thing I can recommend, work on your flexibility. It’s a lot less likely you’ll get injured

I did a bit of mma and bjj. If you can find a gym that doesn’t train people to compete and fight as main focus versus learning then it will be more fun. Your body will thank you lol

My son was first into karate when he was little and then kickboxing as a teen. When he turned 21, I got him into kempo karate per his request. In his mid 20’s, he switched to MMA or mixed martial arts. He was into that up until he was 30 years old.
