I would like to lose weight, but I'd also like to be learning some stuff in the process, rather than just riding my pushbike and going to the gym (I'm already riding a lot, but I'd like to do a martial art instead of the gym). I'm not overly fat, but I could definitely stand to lose a good 10 or 15kg (22 to 33lb for you stubborn oldies!). Is there a good martial art that will have a reasonable tolerance for my existing low endurance and stamina and general fitness, but will help me build on it? I'm relatively flexible for a fat guy - i.e. I can comfortably kick to the height of my head - but not so much that I'd be any good having to do ultra flexible stuff all the time, from the word go. I also played Aussie Rules football for a good 10 years up until a couple years ago, so I'm no stranger to physical exertion! More importantly, are there any such arts in Melbourne that anyone can recommend? Thoughts please! Relevant recommendations only, eh? Cheers.
