    This has been asked a million times. It’s a coommn misconception that one style can beat another. You will get people saying “Karate could beat Kung Fu” or the other way round, or they’ll say BJJ could beat everything if they’re MMA meat heads. The reality is that it depends on the fighter, and it depends on the training.Karate and Kung Fu were both made for actual fighting. Kung Fu is Chinese and developed from the Feudal infighting in China. Karate is Okinawan (Japanese now) and was developed from Kung Fu for Okinawan peasants to defend themselves against the Japanese.Kung Fu is an overarching term for many many styles – some are more effective than others. Modern Wushu is more flashy, traditional Shaolin is less so, Sanda/Sanshou is essentially kickboxing with throws. It usually involves hand and foot striking, elbow and knee strikes, joint manipulation and throws/wrestling and will also involves forms. It sometimes uses weapons. The philosophy in Kung Fu tends to be softer and more circular; by rotating body parts you gain more power and also can redirect.Karate also has many styles within it – again, some are more effective than others. It mostly involves hand, foot, elbow and knee strikes, with forms (or kata) with some styles also teaching grappling, locks, joint manipulation and throws. The philosophy in Karate is more linear, which is not to say it doesn’t utilise rotation to gain power. However, it remains very much rooted, using the legs to supply the power for punches and kicks. (I would mention I’ve done a total of 3 months of Karate, so my knowledge is more limited)I’d recommend going to a few classes, checking out which style looks better taught, and which one you like the look of more. Remember, both of these styles are very traditional, so you’re going to need to keep at it for a long time to get good. It’s very rewarding though. http://tjofmrarj.com [url=http://pjtkqjctb.com]pjtkqjctb[/url] [link=http://knoivhfkwvc.com]knoivhfkwvc[/link]

    There are several aclultay but it is finding the best teacher in your area that will prove more the difficult I think.You can try Ju-Jitsu, Hopkido, Aiki-ju-jistu, Judo, take a grappling or MMA class, all these and plenty other arts would all be effective with Shotokan.I have a Nidan in Shotokan but am a Shihan in Kenpo. I have no rank in any of the above but I am crossed trained in Aiki Jujistsu Aikido as well as Iado (Sword drawing Katana)Any of those I mentioned plus even more would be effective. One great thing about Shotokan is that they teach you if you have a good school to keep the fight on your feet and not the ground, because on the street if you go to the ground his buddies will be stomping on you as you are on the ground and so knowing grappling is very important so if you ever are taken off your feet you can quickly get back on to themNow if just one on one then that is different you can worry not about anyone stomping on you while you grapple.SO that is why having both is a good idea, as is learning circular martial arts internal martial arts are and just as they also need to learn Linear as Shotokan is. They all combine to complete that Yin Yang or Budo in martial arts to a dedicated practitioner that is not just a spots karate-ka but it is a way of life for them as it is for me.Check out all the schools within our reach and check their credentials, certificates, lineage (though is only partially important so long as they know what they are doing) all these are things to look into and of course try a few classes at different places until you find the one you think best suits you and your Shotokan. each of us as you know have to make the style their own after you become ranked in it. That is what i have done and I think cross training is an excellent idea.Just find a good teacher and school and one that you are comfortable at and less the actual style that it is so long as it is a primarily grappling art form.best of luck. http://cdafsehyvf.com [url=http://kssuxm.com]kssuxm[/url] [link=http://vadyqwilxax.com]vadyqwilxax[/link]

    One can always stivre for perfection, even if it is not totally attainable. In my opinion, many of the people you mention were accepted by some, but alienated from the majority because their way of life challenged the status quo. I don't believe that you need to be alienated or isolated to stivre for perfection. The process doesn't necessarily have to lead away from human relationships. In fact, it would seem to me that in striving for perfection one would also be striving for a better way of relating to others. But, the path of enlightenment (which I would call perfection) often leads one to a solitary life in order to be able to find the peace within before they can manifest the peace without. In other words, it often takes a period of isolation in order to truly find ones self, time away from all the distraction the material world presents. But once one has achieved their purpose, they usually try to walk amongst others and lead the way to enlightenment, not by preaching, but by example, by the way they live their lives and treat others. Unfortunately Jesus (and perhaps many of the others you mention) wasn't given the time to lead others towards true enlightenment, this is why his message is so misinterpreted these days. I hope that makes some sense and helps.

    If you aren't afraid of gtntieg bruised up at boxing lessons, I'd go for those with some simple American karate on the side. I took USA Karate, which is just a fighting/grappling system developed by some 1970 s karate instructor. But learning quickness and dodging blows is very important, that's why I think you should take it. Take boxing lessons to learn how to connect a blow with power, and actually compete against others your age to eventually develop your own method of kicking ass.

    no art is better than any other.first thing you need to do is find out what is aaillvbae in your area. it's easy for someone to say you need to learn hung gar but it's not so easy if there isn't a hung gar school close to you is it?if you want explosive power and physique you need a very "cardio" oriented art such as krav maga (for self defense) kickboxing, muay thai, boxing. something very active.References : http://tdukxayfg.com [url=http://lfghirbb.com]lfghirbb[/url] [link=http://qmgorjd.com]qmgorjd[/link]

    if u like bruce le u should do san shou which is a cniehse martial arts that was created by monks to defend themselves it has kicks,punches,takedowns/throws. San shou is really effective cung le strikeforce champion uses as hus main style and it has a good reputation for having a lot of legit schools. karate is good if u can find a school that doesn't suck which is pretty hard these days. Judo is a good one it comes from jujitsu and has lots of throws. u are limiting yourself to just Chinese and Japanese arts there are many good styles out there from Thailand,Cambodia,Russia,Korea,Indonesia,Philpines,Brazil, and United statesReferences :

    i would say that the Russian martial art of sambo would be the best for evsolpixe strength and conditioning. But that would because of the type of training they do. if you find a sambo gym stateside let me know. but there is no correct answer to the question. what we really all have know in the united states are personal interpretations of the original martial art. i would advise you to find local places of interest, go sit and watch a class and see if its something you would enjoy doing. don't settle with the first one, there are positives and negatives to all art forms. check them out and ask students what they like about going there. when you are starting out having fun is the most important thing. good luckReferences :

    Sorry for being late to post. If not too late would like to add my comment on ‘ the niscet thing that someone has done for me’. Many people have done great things for me that I will be ever grateful for. Would like to mention one such instance. My Sahbumnin (Taekwondo Teacher) – taught me a lot of valuable lessons through Taekwondo and to stretch myself physically and mentally to try and achieve. Would like to take this opportunity to Thank him.
