    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Which Martial Art is right for me?

    Heya

    I'm about 160 pounds, work out 3-5 times a week so I'm pretty strong and fit. I've always been able to handle myself in a fight, but a month or so ago I go attacked by some travellers (If you dont live in england, their Irish Gypsy's and practice bare knuckle boxing like all the time, and never fight fair). Obviously I didn't come out of that well, as fighting against a group is hard.

    I'm stronger than the majority of people my size and that reflects in my fighting style (I do a series of haymakers to the torso to weaken them, or just put them in a full nelson which to this day, only one person has got out of and he is 6 4' and I'm 5 8')

    So what martial art do you think is right, based on this? If you have anymore questions feel free to ask them, as I imagine that more information will make advising me easier.

    Thanks

    i think the best thing you could do is go to a boxing gym and try out yourbadass skills on some of their gyus, ask for some light sparring and then just go for broke. let us know how it goes.

    I am trying to find the discussion on the Travellers; they fight by rule-sets when they fight each other. BTW, what do you consider a fair fight?

    Boxing and Judo.

    Obviously judging from your abilities and the Gotham City like dangers that you have to face everyday, Keysi Fighting Systems is the style for you.

    Just curious: in what sort of fights do you "do a series of haymakers to the torso" without weapons, rather than headhunting? Not likely in a fight where you're outnumbered. Also, how high do you have to jump in order to sink full-nelsons on adversaries, most of which--given the stats you've given--will be bigger than you (unless you're living in Lilliput)?

    Is it even, like, responsible, to send a noob to challenge boxers with a series of haymakers to the guts?

    Jeez. Someone get me a camera, I'm going to film a video series called, "Churls gone wild".

    Don't listen to these uncouth slobs. They just want to see you fail. Me, friend? I want you to SUCCEED.

    I highly suggest you join the DordNation (TM). They GUARANTEE a black belt. Furthermore, they harbor a secret phrase that will call all other members of the DordNation (TM) in ear shot to your aid! Very helpful for those situations where you're fighting against the group. Just shout the phrase, and suddenly you're kicking ass instead of assing kicks!

    Check it out.

    Definitely Aikido. It is clear that you lack harmony.
