Looking for martial arts club in zurich
 
Hi everyone,
I am looking for a decent martial arts club in the Zurich area. I have trained with the Bujinkan in Taijitsu, but am also interested in Systema or Krav Maga. I would be interested in similar groups who do a mix of un-armed and armed training. My German is ok but I still struggle a bit so am looking for groups where German/English (Germ-lish) won't be a problem!

Cheers :)

I find that the best combination is Ving Tsun for upper body, Tae Kwon Do lower body, juijitsu for grappling, Krav Maga fro self defense. I also do boxing, the only thing that annoys me about boxing is that you train with a preferred hand. If I was to choose any above all it would be Ving Tsun.

I was going to groan at that but *i think* youre being sarcastic.

Bottom line is, there are plenty of non violent benefits to martial arts training and one of them is discipline which is highly desired apparently in this country

It feels nice, it helps proprioception and kinesthesia. It's fun, it teaches you a lot about yourself, your behaviour, in a very short space of time. It provides a full body workout. A thug mentality doesn't fit.

I would definitely go for Krav Maga, at least it makes sense what they are doing.

You can find all type of martial art school at the dojoguide http://www.dojoguide.org/ the website is english too.

For personal training in Samurai art you may you check out our small trainings group in Cham. http://www.jujutsu-zug.ch

we train yoshinryu which is related to the Bujinkan but even more traditional.
