Street Tough or JKD high performance?

I really want to start self defence but i am at a crossroads, i dont know which gym to train at. I have done alot of research and i have nailed it down to 2 gyms, either Street Tough (Rodney King) or JKD high performance street fighting (Morne Swanepoel).

Both gyms come highly recommended and have international accolades. I could try both gyms out but I do not have the time for that and I would hate to start at a gym only to leave it for the other one (I try to be loyal).

If anyone has any advice please let me know.

PS. I do know that the resident expert, Morne, is the president of JKD high performance street fighting but please be unbiased.

HI Rob,

Thank you for posting on the forum. This is like purchasing a new vehicle and you don't know which one to go for :-). It is of great help that you have done some homework before the time. I would strongly suggest you take your time and book a free lesson with each group to experience the training and coaching first hand. It is important you find the best place that suits your needs and compliments you as a person. I am confident that you will have a great time at both. Looking forward hearing from you.

Kindest Regards
