    Searching for style recommendations

    I'm looking to explore something bum rushy, no dancing around each other for half an hour, no ridiculous movie quality stance posing, a kinda strait to the point direct martial art. Any recommendations on "styles" not "schools" to research would be appreciated.

    Muay thai, Judo or Boxing.

    Kyokushin is an excellent karate style with full-contact fights decide by KO but still has a little kata trainning.

    I've done aikido, TKD, and MT, and I think MT is by far the most physically demanding and rewarding striking art. We don't necessarily do "bum rushy" things all the time, but you definitely get in there and mix it up pretty quick.

    Batshat,

    How old are you? And what country? If American and a teenager: HS school wrestling immediately! It's free and much harder to train in later. Very effective martial art. If you intend to study a stand up art it's a great way to learn how to prevent being taken down.

    If past teenage years recommendations above are excellent.

    freestyle - experienced but in not any particular style so - not experienced but not fresh either.

    experience : (generic) TKD, MT, some other minor stuff.

    nearing 30's.

    Anyone know anything that makes use of running around? I said I'm not a fan of dancing around but I do like something with a quick in and out and your done kinda thing. Something where you can make use of inertia, thinking superman punches. Doesn't have to fit exact criteria, looking for interesting stuff, not looking for any ground work kinda thing right now.
