What Combat Sport Is Right For You?
As an instructor who coaches athletes in several disciplines, I can see what styles better suit which students. Some have strong upperbodies and thick necks and don't mind getting punched in the head. Some have long legs, lots of flexibility and prefer to stay outside and kick. Some automatically want to grab when attacked. Even though one cross trains, there will be certain things that they gravitate towards. Learn all you can about things you may not be good at, but perfect your best attributes. I was a very soccer player growing up, but got cut from basketball at age 8. No matter how hard I tried, I never made it on a team. But, I was MVP in soccer all the time.
