Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
wanting to take up some sort of Martial Art, do not know where to start
Preface: I used to do karate as a kid, and it was something I really enjoyed. I unfortunately got ginormously fat around highschool and gave it up, but now that I'm not ginormously fat anymore I'd like to get back into it. It's also something I'd like to give a full effort - I'm not looking to join a club of middle-aged adults looking for exercise - I'm fairly fit now, and I'd actually like to apply that to something I treat seriously and try to be skilled at.
The problem is when I try to google some classes to start checking out, the sheer amount of local options presented paralyzes me in indecision. It's like looking for the shiniest, sharpest needle in a needle stack.
I guess what I need is someone to point me in the right direction. Are there any fellow Vancouver-ites (Vancouver Canada) on the forum who can point me in the right direction of some good, local options for learning martial arts? If not, are people aware of any other online communities where I might be able to ask similar questions?
My old instructor moved to hawaii, otherwise I'd happily rejoin his classes.
