i've done Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu, and a bit of Judo. Kung Fu has been the most usefull overall since we specialized in grappling, and had some countertactics for street fighting. the traditional class were great as well where u use the weapons and practice the different kung fu forms. they each have their good points, but kung fu was my favorite.

I do fencing and should be taking up broad sword (which is dangerous as hell, should be fun).

Don't do Karate, it's pathetic If you want to do something full on, kick boxing is the way to go. Judo is pretty good as well.

I do taekwondo.

And I'd watch out with karate because some of their kicks screw your knees up over time.

If you wanna go full on baddass, do hapkido. Thats hardcore korean street fighting **** that the korean secret service use.

+1 only cause I done that for a while. Got to green belt but I got annoyed with the sylibus(sp). The fight class was amazing and I ended up doing competitions. Didn't win anything cause the other girls I had to fight were like men. Seriously, I was like a stick compaired to them so I basiclly payed to get the **** beaten out of me. It was fun. Try it.

Dude, don't listen to these people. I know what I'm talking about, do MMA.

Do MMA.

Seriously though, I've done some Kenpo and Tae Kwon Do. TKD is completely useless in a practical sense. Kenpo basicly centers around being a dick and deballing people. Really it just teaches you to make someone experience a disproportionate amount of pain. Disproportionate to anything that they deserve, that is. Actually its not that bad, but it focuses on self defense on the streets, so its useful.

IMO martial arts aren't very useful unless you take the right kind and you REALLY commit to it and practice like crazy. Otherwise I doubt that it would help you win a fight against a real opponent. The best way to know how to do that is to watch hundreds and hundreds of real street fights and also just get into fights yourself. Practice the real thing. Its like with music, you play how you practice. Your opponents aren't going to be standing still and throwing well formed, predictable punches. They're going to be going apesh*t.

So that having been said, do MMA.
We're only strays.

Prolly because it's very very defensive, and you probably would want to take something that teaches you to take someone out in 1 punch right?

yeah, or jiu jitsu (can't spell) that works good in the streets, it's what you will need most, or kickboxing is very effectiv begin with two different styles

i presume you did wtf (olympic) style where you cant punch to the face or pretty much use your hands at all unless its to block.

itf (traditional) is very useful as it teaches self defence as well as patterns and sparring and all the usual stuff

That and mostly girls take it

Nah, I can't street fight, I don't do it. I play fight a lot and I can get bloody vicious, but in a street it's punch and run if they start. Trust me, I've been kicked down to the down not reacting, I know myself.

But, when play fighting, I'm fast and hard hitting I try to be, and that also reflects me in fencing (not a martial art in my opinion, but still a fighting style, it's fun as hell).

JKD is the only way!!!

Or Krav Maga, Dim Mac is also cool but id doubt you'd find many instructors.

But seriously, learn something that can actually make you a dangerous fighter, so you can protect yourself properly, not karate or TKD or aikido.

JKD is pretty much what you want, and you can pretty much learn it yourself.

sounds kl. I don't get kickboxing it seems to me just to be kicking and punching someone. not much skill.

"Aikido" can someone give a description.

If you want it to defend yourself, I'd try Krav Maga (Israeli fighting style used by the IDF. It's philosophy would be something like "finish the fight as fast as you can. So kick the guy to the balls, then an elbow to his neck, and pee over his body". Well not really like that, but it shows what it stands for. Defend yourself).
Another one would be Muay Thai since it's very good for self defence. It doesn't take much time until you can use it to defend yourself.

Now if you want it for the sport rather than the defence, then I'd go for ITF Taekwon Do.
I practice it, and it's an amazing sport. Though I wouldn't recommend it for self defence since it takes a lot of time to use it for your advantage, and it relies on ethics (no kicks below the waist and that stuff...).

No. That's what Taekwon Do causes.
Nobody is flexible when they start unless they practiced something else like another Martial Art, or dancing in the past.
