I'm planning to start learning a martial art and have identified three quality schools in my area.

>Krav Maga
>Aikido
>Wu-su Kung Fu

What should I pull the trigger on?
>>
>>824915
Learn from videos.

also an option - practice the construction of small cylindrical explosives found commendably in plumbing material around the near vicinity of "motherfuckers"
>>
>>824915
>eye-gouging
>wrist-locking
>gymnastics

whichever you like best tbqhf.
>>
they're all equally worthless bullshit but if I had to pick one go with krav.

at least you'd gain confidence in fighting abilities you don't have
>>
>>824962
Is that a good idea? Not OP, but I wanted to do muay thai.

Also is that a worthless style or should I just go for MemeMA
>>
>>825052
depends on where you live and who the best teachers are.

>google picture

Houston

>>824915
None of the above.

Find a boxing gym or judo joint
>>
>>824915
Whatever you find coolest/enjoy the most. If you want self-defense shit, probably krav but you'd have to check all the places to be sure. The kung-fu is easier to be shit, but I've seen kung fu styles with judo-esque throws, and I don't know shit about CMA styles. Aikido got them wristlocks, but unless you git good at something else first, or only deal with drunks, not so good. Krav could be pretty shit too, especially since it's more of a self-defense class than a martial art.
>>
>>824915

>Krav Maga

This is a very gardcore martial art. You'll get tough as a military guy and learn to defeat multilp opponents.

>Aikido

This is also excellent to defend against multiple opponents. You'll also learn to fight with weapons and against weapons.

>Wu-su Kung Fu

Like Kickboxing or Muay Thai, but with more techniques. Also Weapons are included.
>>
>>824915
OP, shy do you want to start/what do you expect from it?

It's basically the most important question.
>>
Krav Maga easily out if those 3.
>>
>>825050
> gain confidence in fighting abilities you don't have

Sell it as a slogan to Krav Maga association
>>
>>824915
Isn't that from Faces of Death?
>>
It's kind of hard to find quality Krav Maga.
You should definitely go with the Krav Maga.
>>
>>825690

This desu senpai
>>
Krav is definitely more effective, but kung fu looks pretty cool. Plus if you do kung fu for like 15 years, it might actually be effective in a fight
>>
>>824915
Ignore the haters, go with Kung Fu. Might not be as effective as the other two but more fun and still more than enough to keep your ass safe against some drunk yahoo
>>
>>824915
Hahahahahaha
>>
Aikido.
I don't know much about wu shu quan, but it's basically kick boxing iirc, except they don't soar.
Krav Maga will just give you a false sense of confidence.
Aikido will at least make you great at break falls, which is a genuinely useful skill to have. You'll also gain a few pain compliance party tricks to show your m8s.

>It's kind of hard to find quality Krav Maga
Because it doesn't exist.

If you like the idea of having blinding hand speed and kicks comparable to that of a Clydesdale then kungfu is definitely for you

Gif related, after years of study you too can perform these miraculous feats of fighting prowess

Has Wu been shamed off this board yet?

scope out both the Krav and Aikido places.

choose the one that isn't a mcdojo.

If they are all mcdojos, move house.
>>
>>831312
I fucking hate people.
