    First off, where are you going to college? Lots of colleges have great MA clubs on campus for little or no money.

    Boxing and Judo are the two most common martial arts, two of the lowest cost martial arts, and two of the best martial arts for self defense, competition, or just a general workout. If you can't find a good mma school, take one of them.

    Quite right too. Never consider a martial art that sounds remotely like pastry.

    I think youll find that the majority or kung fu schools teach innefective choreographed, ways of fighting (however there are some very effective forms of kung fu). I think if you want to find an effective form of kung fu Omega is probably the best person to talk to about that. Karate is usually a very easy to find art, but one problem, most karate sucks ass too (with the acception of Kyokushin Kai karate, kempo karate, and several others/). But i reccomend taking an entirely new art alltogether, like other have said, BJJ, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Judo, Boxing, kickboxing, are all very good and you shouldnt have too much trouble finding atleast one of those.
    Hope that helped a bit.

    By the emperor's beard! So karate's bad mmm'kay.... except lots of karate styles mmm'kay... which aren't bad. Enlightenment at last.

    Nesyad... If you only have access to kung fu... tough break, but it's way better than nothing. Train at it until you go to college, then, like Hitman said, your college is probably going to have a shitload of choices. By continuing training now, you'll be fit, flexible, drilled... and hopefully used to getting smacked around.

    Also, don't worry about having to "start over". You never start over... you just add and adapt.

    Good luck

    Most of the time, the only karate styles that are worth being mentionned as martial arts are the kyokushin based styles. Gojo ryu/shotokan/xx-ryu, etc... are often utter crap.

    They usually are but that doesn't always

    Here is the only somewhat decent Goju clip I could find on YouTube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXY4FgKlLok&search=goju

    the rest are kind of lame

    Anyways don't judge a soley school by it's styles name no what it is you're looking for.

    It seems the nutriders came out of the woodwork on this thread

    The primary thing you want to look for in any given EFFECTIVE martial art is that the training includes sparring against fully resisting partners at some point not too long after you begin.

    PirateJon is right about boxing and Judo. You would be hard pressed to find a martial art as cheap and as effective as those two. While BJJ is good for the grappling range of fighting (and truthfully, little else), it's probably also one of the more expensive MA's to train. MMA is also good, but usually as expensive as BJJ if taught by credible instructors.

    If I was your age I would take boxing and Judo if I had the time. They are both great MA's that provide a solid foundation for other martial arts should you decide to crosstrain further. Wrestling is also good, but it will be difficult to walk on to a college wrestling team with no prior experience.
    Shut the hell up and train.
