Looking to start a combat sport, I’m a beginner with no experience. Previous sports are Rugby and Rowing. I’m 5’7 and circa 164 lbs. I am initially drawn to wrestling, because; I study the Ancient Greeks and its a sport they invented, became more interested when Martin Rooney said in his recent article how it was part it was part of the ancient pentathlon, and I just think it is a cool sport.
There are few coaches in ireland and none close to where I live, is it easy to learn from a book? If so which book would be best?
But that’s just my initial interest, if there is an easier combat sport to start with I’m all ears.
Also, I was looking at getting one of Martin Rooney’s books, looked through ‘Warrior Cardio’ looks good but needs some equipment that I don’t have access to (prowler, sleds etc.) Has anyone used ‘Ultimate Warrior Workouts’ what’s it like? Did you find it useful?
Any help is appreciated, Thanks guys.
