    If you're really concerned about being lethal, carry a knife. Faster, easier, cheaper, and far more lethal than any hand-to-hand style.

    I have to warn you that it's a really stupid idea to arbitrarily decide to use lethal force. After the shock, you're going to have to go through some serious psychological trauma... probably from the inside of a jail cell.

    Take Judo or BJJ and forget about "lethal."

    My personal recommendations are Boxing, Judo, BJJ. So with that I would say the Ju Jitsu school but the problem is I don't know much about it. What kind of JJ is it?

    Is there a GJJ (Gracie Jiu Jitsu) school nearby? I know some of the GJJ affiliates like Pedro Sauer GJJ have a more self defense/combatives focus in addition to all the regular BJJ ground fighting goodness.

    I have on Ju-Jitsu school that teaches Goshin-Budo Ju-Jitsu and one that teaches a mix of Japanese Ju-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and some form of Brazilian Ju-Jitsu all rolled up into one "art". I was thinking about that school but wasn't sure if the $169 per month fee would be worth it considering that there is no Gracie or Machado or any "famous" name attached to the style they teach. I have watched two classes so far and it seems to be legit, but they seem to focus a lot on the ground game. Is that normal for a self defense school? What do you think?

    I'd start by telling us where you are on planet earth. Though off hand I'd think that wrestling + Muay Thai sounds jolly.

    A quick google reveals a plethora of schools, including one Sambo school, within easy drive of Chester,NY.

    Several dozen times more than around my remote northern outpost in Idaho.

    A lot of the schools in the area are TKD or TKD based. I wanted to get into a more combat oriented, street oriented system. Also, I don't know very much at all about Sambo, but isn't Sambo mainly Russian wrestling?
