Would it be ok for a Korean person to learn Kung Fu rather than TKD?

Seems bad that I want to learn Kung Fu rather than TKD. I%26#039;m not sure what to choose.|||Train in Kung fu, do Sanshou / Sanda (Chinese Kickboxing). It is a

mixture of Kickboxing, Wrestling and Judo (Very effective). Even the

Chinese military use it.|||If you want to do kung fu then do kung fu. The only thing that brings race in to martial arts is people. Do not let such petty people interfere with you and what you wish to do|||Of course it%26#039;s okay.

Kung Fu is much better than Taekwondo and I would recommend you to take up Kung Fu instead.|||Learn whatever you want. It%26#039;s a free country.|||If you plan on doing Kung Fu, do Sanda/Sanshou if you actually want to learn how to fight. I%26#039;d trust my safety on the street with Sanda ten times more than TKD, no matter what.|||I am afraid U have been tainted by traditionalists. There is no nationality 2 combat.@ this point in history,U have the option of any martial art regardless of your race.What U need 2 look in2 more so is what your goal is 4 learning the art.Some concentrate on flowery kicks,some on healing,some on joint manipulation,some on redirection.Figure out your goal %26amp; 4get nationality.|||i%26#039;m learning Tang soo do and Kenpo.. basically If want to learn Kung Fu rather than TKD, then go for it... it doesn%26#039;t really matter what ppl say, as long you enjoy the Art...|||Nothing wrong. But I understand you. I%26#039;m Japanese and I practice Japanese martial arts; not because I%26#039;m racist, but because I like Japanese martial arts and appreciate the culture.

However if YOU want to do Kung Fu, it%26#039;s your choice and you shouldn%26#039;t let racial bias interfere with your decisions. What you want to do comes first.

Oh and how many white people practice Asian martial arts in this world? Countless.|||this depends on how traditional your family is. so family get insulated if you go to another countries martial arts system, while others could care less.

if you are very close with your parents and/or siblings and you think you need there approval for it. then you should ask them.

I have had Chinese and Korean students that had to stop because of the pressure they were getting from there families. while other didn%26#039;t have an issue with it.

so it all comes down to how close you are with your family and who, traditional they are.
