    OP, seriously, don't make us drag the questions out of you. Post what you're looking for, at least generally, or this thread will either die or derail real fucking fast.

    Try boxing, kickboxing, or MT to get a feel for other striking arts.

    If you want to add grappling do BJJ, Judo, SAMBO, or submission wrestling.

    All of the above should get you in shape.

    If you want a more traditional environment try hapkido, karate, or going back to TKD.

    Imma disagree, and heres why
    You can't run on the ground.
    what if you trip? You have nothing but another person on you
    If you are cornered, you will just run into a wall.
    If someone has a knife they might get a good stab on you then you aren't going to run as fast.
    I pretty much am doing this because I hate this ironic joke.

    Because in Noobytown, I can't say - What the **** asshole, why don't you read The actual article: Finding a good martial arts school - No BS MMA and Martial Arts and then, and only then, get back to us. Stop cluttering up the boards with annoying crapola, ******.

    OP - From what you said: You want a sport, somewhat competitive, prefer striking or only some grappling, useful for self defense as well. You sound like you need a karate school, of course one that competes and has live sparring such as kyokushin or enshin. Look out for the karate Mcdojos. Of course kickboxing, San da (San shou), itf TKD, and muay thai are all good possibilities too.

    May I suggest you give Judo or BJJ a try and see if you still hate grappling?
