Dragon_Lady Posted July 8, 2016 Report Share Posted July 8, 2016 So I did do some searching prior to coming and posting about this but either my Google-fu is horrid or this question hasn't been asked before. I'm assuming the former and apologize if this has been asked to death. So, I'm trying to figure this out. Next year I have plans on taking up a martial art. I doubt seriously that I will be 100 lbs less than the 270lbs that I am now (maybe I'll be 250lbs? That's a big maybe). So I'm trying to figure out if I should wait until I'm under 200lbs or do it as soon as I can. So would you recommend someone who is +100lbs overweight to start a martial arts class or wait? What I'm looking to get out of MA: discipline strength self defense weight loss confidence What I have around me: Jiu Jitsu Wing Chun (this is the one I'm most interested in but it's kinda expensive and about 40 minutes away with traffic...but if I could afford it I'd do it in a heartbeat) Karate Bushido Tae Kwon Do Hapkido Kung Fu Judo Kickboxing MMA My stats 35 Female 270lbs (down from 295 weeee) 5'4 working on strength training shoulders that are sensitive scared to death but wants to do it anyway 1 Quote My Academy Page: https://www.nerdfitness.com/character/88244 Challenges: Fat Wars: Episode 2: Attack of the Carbs Fat Wars: Episode 1: The Fat Menace Link to comment
