Basically, the only exposure I've had to any martial art was TKD many, many years ago, when I was much younger (as in, 10 or so.) I turn 21 this September. I stopped at yellow - I know, a belt's just a belt - and never really continued on for various reasons. I always was interested in the concept of martial arts, though, and still am. I've been toying with the idea of getting back into some sort of thing, though I don't know where to go around here for something like that. More the matter, though, is choosing something. Seems like several people like BJJ and Judo, but maybe that's just mistaken impression. Could anyone give me a quick little primer on the major disciplines represented here, and why you chose what you did? And the other issue ... why did you choose to seriously study martial arts at all? Thanks.
