    I need opinions...

    I am relatively new to this site. I have studied several different Martial Arts, and have not comlpleted any of them to the point of either first Dan or Black Belt. My question is out of Judo, Kenpo, Aikido, TKD, and Shan Tung Kung-Fu, which of these is worth studying to the end assuming that my goal is only for exercise and self defense. Thanks.

    Judo. I would say you should still take Aikido too. But I think you're studying the Aikkikai.

    Judo. For one I think it's the most effective art out of that bunch and from what people like Mr. Jones say, it works well with Aikido.

    Eidt: Mr. Jones did not say that, and I'm a moron.

    Thank you all.... the reason for the post is that where I live dojos are thin, and it has been difficult to say the least finding a school.

    Judo you can get a lot more function out of it in less time and you do not have to go nuts to find a school that spars compared to the diluted Aikido art.
