I am thinking about getting some kettlebells what weight should i get my numbers are in my sig. Also should i get two kettlebells of the same weight or are most kettlebell exercises just one handed.

Id prob start with a 32lber and maybe one heavier. It my preference but I only own 1 of each weight.

Talk to Sensei, he knows

I wouldn't think you would have any trouble with the 53's. I bought a 53 first, and you are stronger than I was then. I personally have more fun with double KB work than single. It is up to you. Depends on how you plan to work them in.

My thoughts exactly. Then if down the line, pick up a second one of the appropriate weight if you decide you need a pair.

I don't know how strong you are but I suggest a 16kg and a 24kg to start, then add a 32kg and/or40kg later. As a beginner I suggest getting a couple different sizes rather than a pair. Learn to use them properly first.

I agree with this.

If you can, try to borrow someone's or work with someone who knows what they are doing (and has some).

I bought a 53lber to start, which was fine for me for presses, C&J, windmills, TGUs, etc. but it wasn't until I had a little practice w. a lighter bell that I had the balls to do a snatch with it. Not saying that you'll be the same necessarily - just sayin'.
