    What Martial Art Is Right For Me?

    I would prefer not getting on the floor and wrestling the guy. I like fighting, and I want to practice sparring. I prefer to fight than to just chuck the guy on the ground and wait for him to get up again. I fight with balance and patience. I defend when I need to, and attack when I need to. I plan on studying whatever martial art I choose for a while. I like in Palo Alto, and have access to dojos in Mountain View/Sunnyvale/Maybe San Jose.

    Not appropriate for the technique discussion forum. This thread should get moved to newbietown, which is where you should have started it.

    Your comments about fighting like a Tiger or Monkey seem like nonsense to me. But if you aren't interested in any grappling, you should probably box. Even Muay Thai has extensive clinch work, which is standing grappling. Kyokushin karate has a really good reputation as a fighting art as well. I have no idea what is available near you, however. But you can google that yourself just as easily as me.

    Good luck here on bullshido. Based on this first post, you're gonna need it.

    if you aren't comfortable touching people, martial arts might not be for you.

    I am comfortable touching people. I am also comfortable knocking them down and wrestling them on the ground, it's just I'd rather not.

    Any particular reason why not?

    Also, I second the Boxing suggestion.

    it's got a pretty substantial bearing on what we recommend, and why.
