Dear members, eventually, I would like to find a suitable sport for me. I have tried many in my life but am not very well hand/eye coordinated...
In addition, I would like something that trains the body and brain and gives me the occasion to socialize/do sports with other people. I have always stayed away of team sports (soccer, volley, handball, baseball, badminton etc) because I look so clumbsy and it's just not where I belong! : ) But I have always envy those sport teams where people gather and have fun learning and playing together.
I have a good "natural" cardio and have strong muscular legs. I'm quite tall. Though my upper body is very weak in comparison and I don't want any hand contact because of my violin playing. I once broke my tiny bow pinkie doing sports and it would be the end of the world if it would have been on my left hand! I still want violin to be my primairy and most serious hobby...
I do have a Akido school and also s Russian systema school near where I live (I know nothing about either but I suspect systema to be very violent! Am I wrong?) However I would not mind to travel.
Does someone knows a good martial art (not Tai Chi, it's too quiet for what I want... I love energic things and don't mind competition. I love it!) with only the use of legs? (and safe for fingers, that would not be too tough on my weaker upper body)
Thank you very much if some of you have names of suitable martial arts! I know absoluntly nothing in these!
Have a nice day : )
