Drumming is what i do for a living and i worry about hurting my wrists to where it would mess with my drumming. The main types of martial arts that im into are karate, kung fu and boxing (although a sport it is very much a martial art).

I just found out about a place in my area that teaches boxing, muay thai and mma. I am looking into taking boxing lessons.

I could use all of your advice as to what you all think about me getting into martial arts.
Hi drummingman.
I have over 30 years invested in martial arts, studied 32 styles all up. Upon reading your post my first thought is you need to consult a doctor who specializes in sports medicine before taking any martial arts classes.

I had to quit due to a serious health issue. I miss it very much.
