Getting “good” at martial arts is very relative to who is asking the question. For most people, who are just looking to learn some solid self-defense skills, improve their fitness, etc – they should expect to spend at least a year in martial arts training. This can give you a VERY basic skill set in your choosen martial art.

Most serious practitioners will tell you that martial arts is a life-long pursuit of refinement and improvement. One is never “good” – we are always learning.
