This is a pretty cool series by an excellent European swordsmanship school. Something fun to watch of you're interested in swordsmanship at all.

Haven't been actively practising muay thai for a long time, just tried to keep up mobility and strenght training.

But I would like to add a new routine this summer/fall - or a new art completely.  :thinking:

Muy Thai is a fantastic striking Martial art, if you're considering another, I'd recommend jujitsu/judo or Brazilian jujutsu. It's a really good idea to train in an art that teaches throws and ground grappling along with a striking art. It think it makes for a more well rounded skill set.

Jujitsu and judo are bot good options, but best practiced with a partner, I think. With Muay Thai, I can do shadow boxing and generally practice footwork by myself. Last few years there has been a group holding courses in wing chun, of which I was intrigued, but never attended - because I was waiting for a better time. I am regretting that I didn't attend when I had the chance  :sad:

Definitely better to practice grappling martial arts with an instructor and training partners. One of the things I liked about Karate, especially Okinawan Karate, is the ability to practice skills by yourself on your own time. Kata can be a really useful tool for training at home.

I studied Aikijitsu, karate, jujitsu, and Iaijitsu with the Yama Nami Bujitsu Kai for about 8 years. I recently got permission from my instructor to open my own Dojo, which to me, is a really big deal. Studied a bit of taekwondo along the way. I definitely have a special place in my heart for martial arts.

Wow you are a master in martial arts! Congrats man. Not many people have that much dedication.

Thank you! I definitely don't consider myself a master, but I am finally at instructor level after all these years. That definitely feels good.
