    That is extremely pricey - if you don't want to do hard impact throws etc - why don't you look at boxing? Cheap as chips as the saying has it. You mentioned that you have done it before so should know what to expect.

    I hate to say it, but if you can't walk, there's certainly no useful martial arts training available. Do yoga for flexibility and a little strength training maybe, but, yeah, clear anything with a doctor.

    You definitely want to check with your doc if you are recovering from serious injuries or impairments not probably.

    All good striking comes from your feet. Whether you are punching or kicking sooo your legs will be under non-usual stressors. I wasn't kidding about cycling or swimming if your legs are truly screwed at the very least it will give you something low impact to build off of... and they are really fun.

    I'd say, take up weight lifting. Shave your head and grow a beard. Bulk up pretty decent and look mean. That will probably work out best for you if you can't walk or run.

    If you are dead set on martial arts, look into stick or knife fighting. But, while striking is generated from the feet, stick fighting isn't necessarily. But it is super dynamic as far as footwork and moving in space. Knife work a little less. Balintawak may be a good start. They focus a lot more on striking patterns over footwork at the beginning.

    can you help
    the main ones around me taekwondo/karate/wing chun/aikido/hapkido/capeoira/japense juitsu/
    BJJ is around me but too expensive £70 month for one hour a week £120 for unlimited

    or is there any other style u can think of worth doing
    Holy ****, is an hour a week all you're able to attend, or is that the going rate? The top guys in the UK don't even charge that for a seminar.

    We're a Gracie one known to be dear, but it's £45 unlimited for beginers and £60 for advanced every day but Sunday.
