go back to the club!

going your first time (especially if you don't know anybody already in the class) is probably one of the most awkward situations ever. everyone knows what they're doing and you feel out of place and you don't have a gi so you're the weird guy in sweats. then nobody wants to work with you because you're not giving them a sufficient workout - so you say fuck it and don't come back.

just stick it out - find the nicest looking guy/girl there (especially if there is a girl in the class, they're compassionate) and have them help you, thats what i did - and i was friends with everyone within a week.

I third that motion, go back to where you first tried or maybe find another type of martial arts.
Most places are more than happy to help newcomers and some places even split you up into groups of experience (beginners practice together and the more experienced guys practice together). If you stick with it, you'll get better over time. Don't get frustrated with your progress - the teachers/sifu should be there to HELP you, not push you along just to make a grade.
As for being out of shape, just do some more aerobic exercises in between classes (or practice what you were taught at the martial arts club).

tao of jkd iz a great book

i would recommend just finding some info or short video on bazic attackz, working on a punching bag, punchez and kickz, concentrate on your breathing and balance, speed without sacrificing form. powerful strikes. this will get your cardio up too.

Hello,

I started Judo again after about 10 years, and I found that I could do the training, but after a few weeks in I was still not able to perform appropriate technique in my falls due to a lack of muscle flexibility. I also began to be affected in my lower back from joint pains, I asked why and I was told it is only natural that one who aspires to perform well and safely in the art should also strive to increase and maintain a high level of strength in all muscle groups.

I've withdrawn for the time being to focus on these aspects of my training.

If you'd like I can email you a collection of stretches that I copied from a book, it may help you prepare yourself.

i've been watching alot of these on youtube lately...



i've been teaching my self to move for a while now, i take dance classes but nothing technical so for the most part i'm trying to figure it out for my self (i'm going to sign up for some tai chi classes soon but i've been at it for a few months now just getting my self and my body ready)

what i like about watching the tai-chi kata is that i can SEE where the force and flow is at all times (especially when very skilled people preform it!)

i'd suggest you take a look and try to feel that force/flow your self (even if you don't know the steps or the exact flow between movements, just try to stay true to the flow...)

hope this helps

i would recommend you pick up a copy of castenenda's "Magical Passes". it's a system of movements based on kinesthetic memory. this type of memory is the basis for all martial arts/yoga.

i started teaching myself the system a few months ago. you can master it in time.
