    Got my red belt in ITF TKD. Was so stoked! Start at the York club next week. O_O
    do you live near drings houses in York, there's a cool judo club around there, £2.50 a session (+about that for a mixed martial arts after the judo).

    Sorry for sounding ignorant but what's ITF? TKD I presume means tai kwun do (yeah yeah, I can't spell or use abriviations).

    If I have a martial arts license, does that mean I can carry weapons.
    Such as nunchukas, or a kendo stick.

    I think it means you can teach it, but you'd need a different licence for weapons, I might be wrong.

    Warwick has two clubs related to your interests: jitsu and kempo ju-jitsu, both of which seem pretty good. However, as a member of the muay thai (thai boxing) club, I feel obliged to promote it: it's without doubt the best martial arts club Warwick has to offer!

    :eek: I didn't know they would offer muay thai! Maybe I'll try that instead, what's the training like and how often do you train if you want to get good?

    Yep, we've got one of the best clubs in the UK. Training's great, suited for anyone may they be beginners or even profesionnal fighters. I train 2-3 times a week, the wednesday session is the so-called "advanced" session which are incredibly hard but worthwile: I've gained a lot of stamina, and power in both my kicks/punches through those sessions so if you want to get good fast I would recommend going to these even if you don't have prior martial arts experience. The other sessions are for everyone and obviously less hard but still quite demanding, all in all good fun!
    Each session is 2 hours long.

    Muay Thai is a very effective form of martial arts infact its an offensive one, where as others are defensive. I would highly recommend cross training it with either Judo/Ju-Jitsu to give you that slight edge. Both are very good and it will up your fitness, endurance and stamina by far. Its a pity I don't have much time on my hands to cross train.
