    I did the boxing/thai boxing before for yrs, I am now 37 yrs old and have had head injuries from being in a self defence situation on the street, and have no interest in pounding on someone or havening them pound on me , I am more interested in an art now, with just enought reality thrown in 2 make it interesting!!

    If you want forms AND ass-kickery, take Kyokushin Karate.

    I didn't read that...

    Anyway, Grappling would be alright for you. There is REAL art in grappling, not some artsy fartsy "step one, step two, blah blah blah". It's just BEAUTIFUL to see a 160lb man tap out a 200lb man with ease.

    Consider koryu kenjutsu or iaijutsu.
