Hello!
This my problem:
Do not know what I want to train (selfdefence / Fight skill) Whusu sems right, but a bit wrong when you do shows jumping around etc. ..
I want to be able to defend myself and when Im training i don´t want to go a fight matches and get smashed in the face :P

But i want to look like something like this (perhaps exaggerated but you know what I mean better now)
Fast punches and good defence.

I'd say Muay Thai all the way pal, I know a few guys who are semi pros, couple of them out in Thailand at the moment and have been there for like a year now. They love it and it's a very cultural sport along with being very very physical/demanding.

I wouldnt do MMA. It's quite violent and in my opinion draws the wrong crowd, because of that. Wushu, being the most elemetary form of (chinese) martial arts, is really interesting, but maybe too 'spiritual' and not practical enough for some. Muay Thai or kickboxing is quite ok, but strongly depends on the teacher you will have. Some will just teach you to hurt people as much as others, whether others will also teach you how to use it responsably and not focuss on the agression alone.

Of all the martial arts i've done, I've liked Aikido the most. It's a beautiful art which combines balance, energy and power into very effective defensive movements. I like it because it doesn't 'breathe' agression, as alot of other forms do. So if you are doing it purely for self defense, I'd say Aikido. However if you also have very high physical demands (you want to work out really hard), maybe you'll be better off doing karate or muay thai. But as I said, the trainer doing the lessons makes all the difference in the world.

I'm a black belt and have been doing karate (Wado Ryu) style for about 8 years. I would have to agree with what Wombat said. My style of karate has only been made better because of my fantastic sensei. What I would suggest is visit your local karate clubs and take a couple of lessons a lot of clubs will let new people come in for a few lessons to get a feel for it then you can decide what style best suits you.

I have spent a very large part of my life doing different martial arts and can vouch for the effectiveness of Muay Thai and Judo for self defence. Using these techniques I have managed to defend and counter multiple attackers with and without weapons in the street (it wasn't a very nice time at all... long story and in the last street fight I ever had (about 8 years ago now) I got a little carried away at one point and put three people in hospital, luckily the police were on my side after reviewing the CCTV and getting statements!).

For sport/fitness I love Taekwondo but that is more down to the teacher than anything. I didn't really get on with Jui Jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Kendo, Ninjitsu, Wushu or Aikedo - probably because of the teachers/my personality rather than anything inherently wrong with the style.

If you are a bit on the small side I would recommend looking at Krav Maga - this is a truly brutal and very effective self defence system and what I get most of my female friends to study.

Oh - and the best defence is a good attitude and awareness of surroundings/situation. Failing that a really fast run works well... I'd use fighting as a last resort after my previous experience. Still love it for sport though!
