I am repulsed by people's feet, and believe me I've been a paramedic and registered nurse. If I were going to get over it I would have. I would really like to get into a combative art but even the krav maga and BJJ (which I really don't care for) schools in my area train in bare feet. This is a serious glitch holding up my training and goals. Do any of you know of a legitimate self-defense/combative form during which people always wear shoes?

Being as sympathetic as I am, my first thought was, "uh... Suck it up, buttercup."

But, my old Krav instructor let people wear some sort of slipper things, if they wanted. Won't help if it's other people's feet, but might be an option.

Otherwise, refer to my previous comment. ☺️


What I lack in knowledge & skill, I make up for with sarcasm & bad jokes.

You could always find private lessons. With the proper monetary motivation, I am sure just about any instructor will work with your unique needs.

Not that I have been to many but the few I have been to we all whore the socks with the grippy things on the bottom, kind of like what you get from the hospital. I was told this kept the possible foot fungus transferred to other parts of the body. Maybe you could suggest that to everyone.

Pat McNamara just recently launched a website for his Combat Strength Training (CST) methodology. I'd say check it out. Plus it looks like you can try it on your own before you spend your hard earned bucks on one of his classes based on it. There is also something about a $16.00 E-book he wrote about CST on the website.
