    Again, I ask, are you wanting to train because it is something you have always had interested in and had always had the desire to do
    or
    because you want to impress this lady

    and seriously, why would your lady be attacked before you?


    My theory is training has allowed me the confidence to be able to walk away from situations a lesser man would be lured into. I can chose not to escalate because I know I could likely hurt the other person and make myself legally accountable for what happens.

    However all bets are off when you are a foreigner in a foreign country.
    I don't think it's very smart to want to get into a fight, then pay thousands of dollars in medical bills, and maybe have to do jail time.

    I want to be able to walk away from issues, but confidently. I have wanted to learn a useful sport for a while, so I'm looking for advice on what sport to take.

    Later you can add some striking and then your set.
    That's a good point. Thank you Like_A_Boss.

    First, Snake and Bobby, you're both right:

    A man is expected to keep his lady out of trouble.
    But then, sometimes, you can't do anything about it.
    - And you see that once, you want it to happen never again.

    Second, as to the OP, you should consider your own motivation,
    and what training will really bring you.

    Are you looking for MA training out of anger, or hurt pride?
    You won't get far.

    Are you looking for an immediate solution to your problems?
    You won't find that in a discipline that takes years to master.

    Are you having self-confidence issues, are out of shape, overweight, or whatever?
    The sport will help, but other things will have to change, too.


    Now, is *martial arts* a vaild method to solve any impending issues of harassment?
    Hell, no. If you're getting assaulted or stalked, change your location, or stay home.

    That said, learn Muay Thai, not a style primarily based on ground-fighting.
    Hi Hiro Protagonist.

    I think it's more of a self-confidence thing. Don't physical sports train you to control your emotions? That would be good for stopping you doing something stupid.

    I am not interested in getting into any fights. I don't drink alcohol, but my ladyfriend likes to go out and drink sometimes, so I just want my lady to know that I could protect her from some rude drunk assaulting her if I had to (I don't think that would ever happen though).

        but you aren't stating which one you have had an interest in.
        it's all been about "you, defending your lady and your honor cuz people say things"

        what have you seen that you liked and wished you could do?

          I am going to print it out and put it into my wallet, so while I am bouncing and guys come up to me and say:

          "yeah I'm going to start martial arts cause I am super deadly, now can I please get into VIP"

          I can just pull out my chart and point them in the right direction (martial art wise) as I point them in the right direction (Back down the stairs)

              End of thread.

              But seriously, to the OP, you aren't giving us much to go on, so you are getting shotgun approach here.

                That is why I'm here.

                I have decided that I will learn boxing.

                Thank you Snake Plissken.

                    They both bounced for years, but what he really meant is either stay on topic or start your own thread.
                    Shut the hell up and train.

                      You people are coddling this guy too much. Guarantee it's going to bite you in the butt later.

                        Develop a sense of humor. For example, if someone saunters up to you and says to your woman, "Why is such a fine bitch like you with a dork like this guy?" and then points to you, you should hold up your hands, palms about a foot apart, as if suggesting that your penis is one foot long. Then smile.

                        This is not trolling—there's no reason to get into a fight over "rude comments." Just be funny and fun.

                          Next question:
                          Do you speak Korean?
                          If so, move on, if not, look for a gym that offers English/French instruction.

                          Until then, start running and skipping rope.

                            Surely OP would have better luck finding a quality judo school in Korea than a boxing gym? Off the top of my head I cannot recall many great boxers/boxing coaches from Korea.

                            And if he's going to have to learn an one Non english language he might as well pick up some judo. Kosoto! Ko-ouchi! Osoto tani makkikommi harai nage!

                              Since if you haven't heard of someone, clearly they don't train properly and aren't any good?
