It really depends on what you want to learn, be it self defense, throws, holds, etc

Well, I you want to defend yourself very complicated, styleless but very effective...
You should try out Jyu Itsu (don't know how it's written).
I made that for a year, and you learn interesting and effetice basics about breakind shoulder with a simply move of you hand when somebody push or pull you wink.gif

Jujitsu?

"Jujitsu? I'm gonna learn... jujitsu?"

If you want to learn to defend yourself there are better ways than karate. I suggest Krav Maga or Systema (especialy Systema) but the latter one might be a bit hard to find a class for, depending on where you live.

Yeah, and unless you're planning to kill/interrogate someone... very effective in stopping your attacker though, I've heard. Trained and sometimes referred to be developed for Spetznaz (well, GRU I guess) operatives. mf_hide.gif

There is a difference between Krav Maga or Systema on one hand, and karate or kungfu on the other. The first are meant as ways to kill (offensive, use by armies) and the second are more a way of life, teaching respect and restraint instead of only teaching you how to beat people to death.

In that case you might aswell consider kickboxing Malajn.gif

Anyways my dad did both tae kwondo (spelling? tongue.gif ) and karate for several years, AFAIK he preffered karate but ive no idea why.

May I suggest you take up boxing, are you looking for fitness or just something different?

If you want great fitness do boxing/ boxercise

If you want something different take up a martial art

I would agree with Spetsnaz, martial arts are great fun to learn and look awesome if you ever get in a fight smile.gif

OT a bit, anyone that has played Metal Gear Solid 3 would have seen the CQC moves. What would that be? tongue.gif

i did judo, using it out of class is really not supposed to happen, same with karate. If your seriously wanting to do martial arts in order to hurt people you dont like your better of saving time and money by getting a knife.

Not really smart if you don't know how to use it, it would most likely be used against you.

And Braty lives in "that place where the cavemen live" (aka Scotland), so never bring a knife when all your enemies are bringing a longsword. That is soooooooo English naughty.gif

Bratty if you live in Scotland have a look out for Sooyang Do Thats what I do and its really awesome. Pretty expensive as all martial arts are, but it gets you really fit and boosts your confidence no end. The one time I had to use it so far it worked flawlessly, but requires good amount of attendance. I been going for 2 years now, its great!

Precisley!
I'd love to do some Martial Arts though :rolleyes. My dad's colleague is a "Blackbelt, first dan" at some obscure martial art, and runs his own class, so I'll look into joining it methings smile.gif

The fact that it is outlawed in alot of civilised countries, and can easily be used against you?
