Hello all, I'll try to keep this from getting too long winded. I recently started taking BJJ for a variety of reasons, a big one being self-defense as a woman. I love it, I love my dojo, and I have no plans to stop going anytime soon (finances permitting). As much as I like BJJ, its lacking in certain areas, and I wanted to study a style that fights off the ground (for self defense purposes and fitness, I don't really care for competition). I managed to narrow my choices down to two, but seeing as how I'm a total newbie, I was hoping you all would help me out with some info. My dojo offers classes in 'tai-jutsu karate', which I guess is some form of mixed martial art. From the website - "Tai-Jitsu Karate blends traditional â€œstand upâ€ punch and kick techniques with ground fighting and self-defense skills to form a single, holistic fighting system. Our students are as proficient using a counter punch to defend against a kick, as using a drop shoulder throw to defend against a rear naked choke. As such, Tai-Jitsu is a traditional â€œmixed martial artâ€ allowing our students to defend themselves at any time, in any place. We do not train katas or forms in Tai-Jitsu. Rather, we focus on a series of realistic techniques, drills, and sequences that evolve as the studentâ€™s knowledge and skills improve." I was also looking at Eagle Claw Kung Fu. Does anyone practice/know anything about either of these two styles? Thanks for your help guys!
