I am interested in joining a civilian Kava Maga program and would like your advice and input on that decision. I also have some questions I need your help on:
1. I am in quite bad physical shape after 4 years of a very hard and time-consuming university degree. I don't have any illness or anything, my BMI is perfectly normal at 23, but I know quite well that I have no endurance now and muscle-to-fat ratio is lopsided. Should I join in and let the course set me right, or should I join a physical fitness program for a while before I do this?
2. What length and frequency should a program be that helps both in physical-finess and self-defense (i.e number of hours of the session and number of sessions per week)?
3. If I get a choice (right now I know of only one center nearby), what kind of qualities should I look for in deciding the center? Does interpreting qualifications help? (In which case I will bug with more questions?) Do advanced qualifications matter much for a raw beginner?
Thanks in advance.
