if u are older than 15 then kung fu is useless for u ..
to become real master on kung fu , you need to start it when u are so young 6-7 years old
i see but fighting with the sword is useless in real life , u can't use sword in the street :D
I started at 8 and still going at it :D and yeah kendo is really helpful in fighting but it is more about bushido and how you live life and how you view, it. It can be very helpful
i am also practice akido since 4 years but i haven't master it yet ..
i feel old my friend , i am already 26 years old and i wish i am 16 again
shotokan is perfect for girls since it's not a real full contact fighting style
butkyokushin karate is one of the strongest fighting style
It's all good man, 26 and living it up I think you can master in a matter of time, and shotokan for girls lol good one my friend.
