This section is for those who are about to start off down the 'long and winding road' that is Martial Arts. Feel free to ask any question, no matter how daft (within reason) you may think it is. We are all here to learn, and even the seemingly amazing rank of black belt is just another step on the journey. Some basic advice : There is no 'best martial art'. Everyone is different and has different needs. If you want to find out if a martial art suits you, then go along and try it. Most arts encourage beginners and will let you have a lesson for free (or at least not require you to pay a 'membership fee') Welcome to the site, and to the world of Martial Arts. HKF.
