I'm having trouble picking a martial art that I want to learn. Here are my goals and thoughts on what I want out of it.
I've always had a fear of walking on city streets. I'd like that fear to be completely gone after training. I also want something I can use as self defense but I also would like to compete in it. I'm athletic already so I don't have a health and fitness reason for learning. I also don't mind full contact and/or disciplines with more pain involved with learning. I'm six foot 2, 180 lbs (on my way to a goal weight of 200). I've got long legs and a long arm span.
Anyone have any good ideas? Thanks for the help in advance.
