I am new and yes this is my first post.
When I was a child I took Karate for a short time. When I got older just into high school, I was able to take Moo Duk Kwan also for a short time.
I never really got to proceed far because of money issues. Now with that short history out of the way lets move on.
I have always enjoyed all forms of martial arts from Capoeira to Hapkido. Where I live there are limited number of options for any sort of MA, mainly there is TKD.
Anyways moving forward, I am now 31 and over the last couple of years have really applied myself to being physical fit ie: weight training and cardio. We have recently put my son into TKD and he is doing great! I made him ask for a couple months before I said yes. I wanted to know if he really wanted it. With him being in classes it has really rekindled that ago old desire in my for MA training. I have decided that there is no better time than the present to start training but there is a catch. I want to study Chinese Martial Arts and there are no schools in this area. Although, on the upside I might be finding out tomorrow if I landed another job that I have been after for several months. If I get it, I will be moving to an area that does have Chinese MA schools.
So here's the question, with some many different aspects and styles in Chinese MA where or what do I start to study first?
I am not going to ask any more than that. I am trying to ask a very broad question in hope of some good details.
Also, can I start with DVDs and Books?
