  16. Well I study taekwondo and although as you've said there is a heavy emphasis on kicks it's very effective and modern with a bit of focus on self defense, well my taekwondo group is anyway. It's sort of split into fitness,patterns,sparring and then self defense but the self defense I have learned seems to work ahha. I think wing chun sounds fantastic, I love IP man!!
