    I did Tae Kwon Do for about 6 years, and then recently when I was in college I tried Aikido and a little kung fu (Hung Ga specifically) but neither one of those really felt like what I was looking for (and to be honest I had some doubts about the legitimacy of the Hung Ga school)

    probably because TKD is more sport and high energy than those other two.

    transitioning from TKD to kickboxing was great. A bit more focused on hand striking, but still has that competitive, high energy sport feel to it.

    I did Tae Kwon Do as a kid, up through tenth grade. Even got a 2nd degree black belt!

    but I will never bring this up, because it's... you know, a kid black belt

    I do like to think I'd still be able to defend my lady and myself if it came to it, but I would probably just split my pants and strain something

    If you want to learn a martial art for practical self-defence purposes, do not, under any circumstances, take Taekwondo.

    Karate and Tae Kwon Do both suffer from similar problems

    1. oversaturation which leads to a loooot of crap schools that just push out belts for money
    2. very 'sport' oriented, not so much fighting
    3. are primarily striking arts, which only really help if you are lucky

    General consensus is usually a grappling art is more practical than most striking arts. The theory being that most real fights end up on the ground, because landing that knock out punch is damn near next to impossible in a real life situation. It's hard to knock someone out or hurt them enough that they don't tackle you or trip you while fighting.

    if anyone is serious about hand-to-hand self defense go find a reputable Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school (look for school that has a master that trains under a Gracie if you can) and take up running.

    Honestly my favorite thing about kung fu was learning about the origin legends of the various styles

    Bak Mei (or Pai Mei as he's usually known in the West, "White Eyebrow") was one of the five survivors of the destruction by imperial forces of the southern Shaolin temple, and the founder of the style that bears his name

    He set up shop in a new temple with a couple of the other monks, and then depending on which legend you prefer, he either went undercover in the Qing court where he came to the conclusion that the rebellion could never succeed and gave up on it, or he was captured by imperials and forced to train and lead an army to the second destruction of the Shaolin temple, wherein he slew the Shaolin leader in single combat to prevent the massacre of the monks by the troops he had led there

    or there's the story from Kill Bill, which is equally fictional but told way better

    You and me both. And I wouldn't even claim to be able to defend a jar of peanut butter from a fat quadriplegic on an incline.

    Unless the peanut butter was at the top, I guess. That and as long as he doesn't have a mouth-activated motorized wheelchair.

    I took a semester of Tae Kwon Do and it was not really what I was interested in, then did a tiny bit of Kung Fu San Soo with @Fire Truck that was pretty rad but I did not stick with it.

    Then I did a semester of Japanese Jiu Jitsu and I liked it and kind of want to find a school down here.

    I bought a groupon for ten free lessons at a martial arts place that teaches some variant of Jeet Kune Do. I should probably actually use that, sometime.

    I would seriously take a martial art if it advocated an offensive use for monocles.

    I would invoke tournament law, and he would have to restart his ascent every time I kicked the air near his head

    also I would get 2 points

    I have no idea how karate exactly works, but I've been doing Judo for like 10 years and a little traditional Jiu Jitsu too.
    But I couldn't do much if someone was punching me in the face.
    And self defense isn't really the point of Judo. It's a fun sport if you are comfortable with getting your head squeezed between legs.
    I guess you shouldn't be a homophobe aswell.

    It looks like that style already incorporates the offensive use of canes, greatcoats, and mustaches, so it's probably in there somewhere.

    I always thought the mouth activated motor wheel chair would make quads the best at cunnilingus. Then I saw a quad run into a group 3 people once and all of them apologizing to him for being in the way.

    Also yeah what other people said.

    Tae Kwon Do and Judo are sports.

    Best self defense: knock them down and run away
