    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Secondary MA

    I've decided to take up an additional martial art. I'm currently taking Yoshinkan Aikido. I'm slowly picking up Iaido but I consider it part time. (When I move I plan on probably jumping into kendo).
    Anyhow in the mean time I'm trying to decide what additional martial art to take and I'm looking for input and feed back on what you guys think I should go for.

    Taekwondo (again)
    Judo & Jujitsu
    Ninjitsu
    Kempo Karate
    Kung-fu
    Stick with just aikido


    Yes I tried to make this a poll but the thing **** the bed.

    Like GMW said... depends on your goals.
    Personally, I'd be looking at Judo.


    Also... poll **** the bed? Awesome.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    Ok, if he was doing _ing__un, then ninjitsu's a good idea.
    Or if he lived in feudal Japan, had a penchant for dressing up and occasionally liked killing people, then he'd be good to go, ninja-style.
    But, I'm still sticking by my judo vote in this ****-the-bed non-poll.

    Sarcasm. I would never recommend "ninjitsu" to anyone, not even my worst enemy.

    I could only recommend judo out of that list.

    As the guys have already said, it depends on your goals. If you're looking at learning self defence then Judo would be your best bet because it has the highest chance of not being a LARPing school. Kung fu COULD be ok depending on the teacher and style while the others have much less chance of teaching you efficient fighting/SD skills.

    Red Sauce for the correct. Why is everything not judo even on that list?

    You might not care about t3h eff3ctive, but by training in things like ninjitsu you are only encouraging them.
