I am cautiously optimistic that we may be close to selling our Money Pit in Corndogland. What this means is that my return to martial arts may be before January! *If* all goes according to plan I could be visiting two schools this month and starting in November.
- Dojang that offers a Krav Maga program
- Dojo that offers Aikido
Many variables to consider, however, the biggest are cost, quality of instruction, and what my old injuries can handle.
I do know from my limited experiences in Aikido and Self-defense Systems (aka buffet-style street defense) that the reality stuff bothered my old injuries more. Aikido not so much. (No comment concerning how Aikido impacted my 40-something knees!)
Monthly costs: Krav is $85 for twice a week whereas Aikido is $65 for three weekly sessions.
The only way to assess quality is to visit both schools which may happen shortly.
