Judo!Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

JUDO OR SUICIDE, K?.
This thread is now on hold in the name of Holy One, what has to happen now is the OP has to goto a Judo class, and then after this very post, he has to tell us what he did and how awesome that class was and then the thread can continue.
The Dark Wood of Error (Pictured below) awaits anyone who posts anything but praise for the holy one.
And we all know what the holy one does to trees. p.s no hakama in the wood, it encourages mistletoe outbreaks in the crowns during spring and really fucks me off

The list is limited to whats available in my local area. Maybe mixed between self defense and just learning another MA to kill time, get in shape etc..
The Iaido (and with luck kendo) is just for fun and to learn a sword martial art.
I'm not too sure what they learn in ninjitsu or how much sparing they do.
I didn't mind taekwondo when I was taking it a few years ago but it was hard to hid the fact that the organization as a whole seemed to be completly about money. Pumping out black belts for compitition, also i didn't like how the classes were often had kids in them.
Kungfu here seems the same. It costs $20 to even watch a class and if you join the $20 goes towards your monthly fee. If you dont take the class then in theory you get the $20 back which is bullshit because the guy just tries to give you one of his dumb t shirts.
I don't know a thing about kempo karate. I think I'm leaning towards the judo/jujitsu class.

Have you just not been paying attention?There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

whichever one trains the most realistically. Look for a good teacher not a good style.
resistance, non forms, resistance drills, resistance sparring .....
wait do I really have to fucking explain what realistic training and sparring and stuff is on bullshido?
from that list there- playing the law of averages your bet is you will find a judo dojo that teaches that way long before you find any of the others.

But Judo if you are anywhere else.
Who did you study Iaido with? I trained with Bill Mears for a few months when I was living in St.Catherines for a while. really enjoyed it too" If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

If you want to play with weapons, you should look into Arnis/Escrima/Kali.
