When I was a kid (6 years old) I trained for a year in tae kwon do. I liked it but my parents didn't want me to continue doing violent sport. At 21, I want to practice martial arts again.

I loved tae kwon do (the jump kicks are crazy) and I was close to start it again, but then I heard about "mugendo". It has the jumps I like, and more movements than tae kwon do.

Do you know another martial art with that high jump kicks?

When using kicks I will suggest you Capoeira. It has a lot of kicks of any kinds, acrobatic kicks and acrobatic moves. See some videos here.

But inside a martial art you can practice more the moves you want.

  • I havent think on capoeira, thank you mate =)
