    Well I cant. However dont do karate. That kata stuff is only gonna get you stabbed. Probably should do Judo. Aikido teaches you strikes n schit, so cover your weakness by learning a grappling based attack. Street fights often end up on the ground and they say grapples help with this.

    Aikido is great for grappling gently putting your opponent onto the floor but I also want to do something else so I can mix the gracefulness and gentle Aikido with something a bit more aggressive grappling is good but I also want more skills.I never fight but I enjoy martial arts can you compare judo with tae kwando please.

    IM Humble O, aikido is only useful when someone statically grabs your wrist or lapels. in the real world it looks out of place and i would term this 'grappling' i would recommend any submission style of wrestling such as mala-Yuddha as the best thing you could learn, tho i doubt you will find a class in this country of any note. you can go to some mma classes they tezch a bit of basic grappling, and supplment with judo and jiujitsu

    its always advisable to mix in striking proficieny so would sugest standard boxing, muay thai, or if you want to stay may dojo based, kempo is a good comprimise, though again has limitations

    tae kwando
    I did taekwondo (would help you if you got the right spelling of it...) ages ago and I can tell you that I am no better equipped to fight people than I was before I did it. Rather a waste of time unless you plan on doing it for years and years, which I did not.

    Well from their own experience they may have enjoyed a particular martial art thus they may think I would enjoy it is well.

    They could do that for someone whose tastes they knew something about; they don't know you, what with this being a website that allows for anonymity (as you should know, given your username).

    I've been doing aikido for a few years too, but since I've moved away to uni I haven't been able to train as much. Since I've been looking for something where I am now, I found a really good sounding taekwondo place that I've emailed for a practise session or two. I'd say just try a few different things and see which you get along with

    it depends - my background was in submission grappling in india so i took to brazilian jujitsu easily, i got into muay thai also which was very differnt but i enjoy that too. i see practical applications for both.

    why dont you try differnet classes of each
