    If you're looking for a martial art that will actually help you learn to fight, look at something else.

    Well like I said, I dont know much about Martial Arts. I would like to learn an effective art thats not BJJ TKD or Karate. Kung Fu looked like it would be fun and a lot of work. Most of what I find on the net involves Shaolin Kung Fu but if thats all bullshit I wouldnt mind learning a different style.

    Just tell us what you want out of your training. Do you want a fun hobby? Do you want to learn self defense? Do want to learn a pure art passed down from generation to generation, for historical value?

    As for info on shaolin... I haven't looked into it much. The impression I get from the threads i've come across here is that "real" shaolin kung fu dosen't exist. The original story passed off that shaolin came from India and spawned all martial arts is BS. In addition there may have been many shaolin temples and no specific single "The Shaolin" temple. Any modern martial artist claiming to practice shaolin kung fu originating from "The Shaolin" temple is naive. A simple search will give you much better information on SKF than I care to give. I tried. Search function newb!

    Judo or Muay Thai maybe? Those are answers many here will likely give you if you want an effective MA. I still think you need to be more specific on what you consider effective. Effective for what? Fighting? Self defense Weight loss/ conditioning?

    Most likely you need to decide what you want in a martial art and see what's available in your area. I'd do sambo if it was available near me and fit my crazy ass schedule, but it's not an option. No point in spending time and energy debating about what art to choose when you don't know what are realistic options for you.
