    Sounds to me like what your looking for would best be served by going to either the goju or shito ryu karate and at least look. Alot of karate does have some sort of throwing and joint locks in it and it can help with the striking, BUT if they seem to focus on kata more than anything and say that only doing kata will make you a great fighter ...RUN

    at first i thought that as well but they teach with rules in mind for sport (no head butts,groin shots,ect).so i figured that would limit its effectiveness on the street.

    the shito ryuteacher seems to really understand the self defense aspects of the kata.i don't know about the goju guy.
    but is not grond self defense kinda left out in karate?

    Use a combination of combat sports to cover the ranges of standup striking, throws and takedowns and groundfighting.

    There's no difference between sport and street training. All techniques used in combat sports work in a self defense situations as well. "foul tactics" can be implemented if one sees fit as long as a foundation of actual fighting has been trained through sparring.

    yep, this is got to be a troll...

    but in case he's not: no martial art really trains too heavily and/or effectively on those deadly groin shots. on occassion (once a year) the last place i trained at would do "street" training for the sake of reminding us we have those tools available to us. so just go with an MMA gym.

    Check the instructors history,see what he has studied in. You may find either a judo or jj background. If so alot of instructors will incorporate that into their style so you will get a basic understanding of the ground game.
