You like martial arts and you want to learn different martial arts. That's great. But if you have no background in martial art and you are a beginner, just forget to learn different martial arts for the time being.
So why is that?
Don't I think learning different martial arts is a great idea?
Yes, of course, I do think if you learn different martial arts, that's great. But as a beginner, if you start learning different martial arts at the same time, you will be more confused.
There are similarities among different martial arts and at the same time, you will find a lot of differences. Every martial art has a fighting stance. You will see little difference in fighting stance in those martial arts.
In a fighting stance, you stand in a specific way and you are ready to fight. For example, your front hand should be a 45-degree angle, your rear hand should be up to the chin. Your knees bend and it points outside. It's basic. You will see little difference when you learn another martial arts.
When you get used to doing something, you do it automatically without thinking about it. You learn to move, strike, and block in a certain way. When you go to learn another martial art, you learn to punch, kick, and block in another way. Practicing this at the same makes it difficult to learn. There is a high chance you will mix it up and you do not know what you are doing.
When you do front kicks, you learn to hit with the balls of the foot. If you learn to hit the heel of the foot while doing a front kick, as a beginner, you will find it difficult to learn.
So how should you punch? Will your fist be vertical or horizontal?
The thing is, how you make a move and why you should do that in that way, there is a reason behind it. For example, if someone grabs your hand, you can release your hand and then go for the counter-attack. But if you want to lock the attacker's hand, you do the opposite move what you have done to release your hand from the attacker's grip.
You will get overwhelmed. So if you have never learned martial art before, I highly recommend learning one martial art first, after learning that, you can go for learning another martial art.
What do you think about that? Please feel free to express your thoughts in the comment section. Thank you so much for reading this post.
Stay safe. Always be happy!
