hi im 15 and am currenmtly taking aikido. I love aikido and its principles, but honestly, it's a bit too pacifistic for me. i plan to continue, but would like to gratify my violent side with some cool kung fu. i know i sound ignorant, and probably am, but would JKD fill this for me? i honestly just want top spar and kick and punch a little, too much happinessi n aikido. lol, i love it though. thanks!

Go to your local Boxing gym. I'm sure they have plenty of sparring partners for you.

Kung fu (any traditional style, JKD included) would DEFINITELY satisfy your needs, frosh2786.

In addition, you'll learn far more than you can currently imagine.

In kung fu, punching and kicking are but two techniques of an arsenal of many.

Without having trained those techniques, the likelihood of you possibly being surprised when somebody like ME uses them on you is higher than if you did train them.

You will also learn that often the best defense is a good offense - and the best offense is a good defense DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION.
