    "And I love how fuckin CLEVER everyone here is....they all have this witty, snarky and razor sharp wit. Like your hilarious little"checklist""

    Actually I found it quite amusing.

    "**** you very much."

    That sounds like something some shithead 16 year old white kid with too much money would say.

    Merry Christmas.

    [Brazilian JiuJitsu, Kali, Krav Maga, Boxing, Wrestling, Kick Boxing, Judo, Muay Thai, etc.

    I doubt anyone here will decide an art for you, because it's not our place. Why don't you look up some martial arts and see which ones you're interested in] this is ture. a good start would be shotokan karate. make sure they with the jka or sjka. this would be a good start. hope i helped alittle

    Take boxing or Judo, for my money.

    If you also want to meet some girls, try kickboxing ; )

    Obviously the best art is the one where you imitate a small tree animal and do heel pivot kicks.

    Make bjj or thai boxing youre main focus...

    Have this as an occuption and compete alot....

    Or buy a gun.

    I think for a standard "average joe" guy boxing (for a girl that would be bjj) is the most superior defense system becuse it will help you in any defensive situation and it will be really good in the most common one: The barfight.

    Thaiboxing is better if youre not afraid of the legal effects of your actions.... knees and elbows rock in small enclosed places.. like a crowded bar but could get you in trouble later with the law, and in some cultures could get you into trouble... you now what i mean.. the "fight like a man" bullshit argument....

    Dont take judo,bjj or wrestling alone. All these are excellent mma competion arts... but they are not the best thing to ONLY know in a barfight.... you want your hands in a barfight and anyone who says otherwise is an idiot.
    why would using elbows and knees be considered so much worse law wise then just fists?
    also,if a person does do boxing or mt for hands and feet what is the best style for getting the ground self defense down,bjj or judo or wrestling or something else?

    It's very hard for us to tell you what art to take, unless you tell us what the Scouter says about your powerlevel. If it's below 9 000, you may get a tough time regardless of what style you take.

Then we can have this conversation again when you have some basis to understand what is going to be involved in being a more complete fighter. If you fail to go box for a year, you will be doomed to being a bullshit poser who tells people he just met that he "does martial arts". Welcome to mother fucking Bullshido.

    Go into your backyard and practice throwing them. The vast majoriy of Americans that are into "Ninja" weapons don't know how to apply the proper technique to shuriken (bo-, senban, whatever). To learn to throw Bo shuriken quickly, you can google it and there are some decent pages. However, I have seen some Genbukan people that are better than most, so I'd have to say seek them out, or get a Genbukan shuriken vid.
    Here is a pretty good site:
    http://www.secrets-of-shuriken.com.au/index1.htm
    Plus, practice throwing playing cards or sturdy business cards by placing one finger flush with a long edge instead of just pinching one tip. Really snap your wrist back at the end of the throw (frisbee or backhand, underhand) to get more spin on it, this will aid in accuracy. Then, when you throw a proper shuriken, being rather thin metal, in this manner, you will see a big difference in performance.
