If you've tried TMA and don't like it, try MMA instead.

Question I want to ask is what is your criteria for real martial arts for selfdefence.
Decafinated white belt.

dude. Use periods. It helps a lot.
South Florida? Try Muay thai... can't find it, BOX! I'm serious. Just learn your front kick (vary as push or footjab) and a low roundhouse to the thigh. Find a guy to train with ya for the kicks if you're only doing boxing.
Learn at least some grappling. Try Wrestling, Judo, Jiujitsu (preferrably brazilian/gracie/machado/whatever). Submission wrestling is good too.
And whats most important - conditioning.
&lt;Me&gt; John, what do you know about Zen Buddhism? &lt;John&gt; *smacks me*
&lt;John&gt; I'd have to smack you sometime...
Katana, on 540 kicks: "Hang from a ceiling fan with both hands. Flail your feet out and ask people to walk into you as you hit their face."

I live in queens and train at 2 schools in the area. If I were in brooklyn I would definitely train with Louis Neglia. Neglia is a world champion kickboxer and 8th degree goju. My Sensei is training partner (who is 3rd degree goju not from neglia) has been there 6 months and is a white belt with a tip. He is having trouble keeping up with the grueling workout because he is in his late 30's and a little out of shape. It's a great school though, full contact an very serious. I think you can check it out at louisneglia.com

Pure self defense: Sayoc Kali.
There's a list of instructors at the website:
My instructor in the system, Guro Jeff Chung, runs a school out of Queens and Manhattan:
"All this talk about 'newbies' is making me a little nervous. You guys don't have any sort of secret hazing initiation involving wooden paddles and me screaming 'Thank you sir, may I have another?!' do you?"
