Came across this on MSN Health. What really caught my eye was the "best" listing at the bottom of the article. Give it a look over and see what you think.

Krotty best for SD, Judo for cardiovscular health, aikido for shy kids... meh. Stupid article.
Oh and the bestest of the best MA is missing.
I like the "TDK for fancyness" part though.

Interesting...it's not too bad as one-line synopsis go.
EDIT: Nevermind, I really only looked at the reasoning for jujutsu, judo, and TKD.
Aikido for shy kids?!?

I found it interesting that Karate was best for SD, while Jiujitsu and Judo are best for balance, agility and cardio respectively.

So the dojo is a great place to take your ADHD rattled child? TKD teaches women self defence? Aikido for shy kids???? Funny!

Because martial arts are generally noncompetitiveó
I just skimmed teh article, but IMHO this confirms that it's full of ****. I'd be really interested in hearing how they decided that while judo was good for fitness karate was better for self-defense.

Style: No gym currently.
Jujitsu is for girls, apparently.
Therefore, Brazillian Jiujitsu must be for Brazilian girls?
No wonder all you guys love it!
There was a similar thing in the UK edition of Men's Health recently... it was more comprehensive and equally as much fun.
I just checked the web-site but it's not on there:-(
Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

As far as I can gather Prevention Magazine is a women's health mag. I went to their expert section on their website Prevention Mag's Experts and Ms. Jeanette Moninger isn't listed (Unless I accidentally over looked her in my quick scan of the page). Course considering the nature of the magazine she has to have some background in Women's Health and/or Fitness. Never the less the article is a Lamen's view of Martial Arts whose using a Martial Arts LARPer as their information base.
Never the less, its not entirely bullshit that group activities are good for the family dynamic. I guess the family that bullshidos together, stays together.
