Wing Chun is a beautiful art to learn. Very fluid with little waste of movement. I am waiting to get into a Wing Chun dojo here but the person I wish to learn from only takes a few students at a time. This martial art is where the folk story started of the girl who would only marry a man who could beat her in battle.

What Commie said about being a black belt in Karate is correct. I took it for about 7 years and can say from experience that I was not very fluid or adaptable until my brown and black belt. However I did find that my dojo did not really practice the spiritual or meditative side of the art. By the time I actually got my black belt I was loosing my aspect. I had gotten to the point where if a door bumped against me I would react and turn to attack. Martial arts without an emphasis on the non-violent aspects of the art are a bad thing. When choosing a dojo you should study and question their students before you sign up to join. Make sure it is not a kill, kill culture. If so you will lose more than you will gain.

Also may I suggest Aikido, this art is truly an art. It uses the motion of your attacker against them. The moves are very sweeping and fluid. It is a very efficient martial art, using the concept of they push you pull and vice versa.
