    This one's quite good as well. Forget the end sequence, which is a mass brawl with a few techniques thrown in.

    As well as this one.

    Muay Thai kick boxing is amazing as is Boxing.

    For self-defence however, something like Kung-Fu or the many styles of Karate should suit.

    Ideally, look for classes that brand themselves as "self-defence classes".

    I have been training Wing Tsun Kung Fu for 5 years and love it... it depends what you are looking for but WT is very much based on street fighting and self defence. You couldn't put it in a ring to compete as it relies on eye strikes/elbows etc.

    Also as a woman it is perfectly designed for me as it uses intelligence and sensitivity rather than brute strength - excellent when you are training with a guy 6ft plus and built like a brickshit house :)

    I couldn't recommend it more as an effective form of self defence!

    I currently am taking Okinawan Shyri-Ru Karate, Taekwondo, as well as Judo.

    Honestly, I watched many of the videos that people have posted, and while they are very flashy, I have yet to be impressed compared to my current training.

    Anomie: "It's not particularily stylistic like Karate, but Karate isn't gonna help evade an alley attack."

    I have alot of trouble believing this, though this may be true for other forms of karate, but in the Okinawan Shyri-Ru form, we learn plenty of single as well as group self-defenses, knockout punches, as well as grappled attacks.

    I believe your best bet honestly for self-defense would be to choose from, or mix boxing, Muay-Thai, or Shyri-Ru Karate.

    That's just me though.
    :shocking:
