Hi all, Rich here from West Midlands UK. I've been looking into Martial Arts for some time as a way to improve my health and fitness in an exciting way. Problem is, I am painfully shy and nervous. I was supposed to have started last Wednesday, but bottled out. I talk myself into doing it, then become troubled by thoughts of things going wrong, or looking stupid and then back out. I'm determined I'm going to start tomorrow. I know once I've done that first lesson I will be fine! Can I ask members here, what did you experience on your first lessons. What where your concerns before going and how did the reality differ. Many thanks in advance.
