My University is offering discounted classes on various fighting skills, I'm a big guy; 6' 3", 270 lbs (tall, not fat), I want to learn how to leverage my size to kick people's butt's if I ever need to & it sounds awesome.
I've never done any kind of martial art, nor fighting, but I swim regularly, hike etc... I'm healthy and in good shape.
My options include:
) Shaolin Kung Fu
) Traditional Tae Kwon Do
) Shotokan Karate
) Shorin-Ryu Karate
) Shobudo Jujitsu
) Fundamentals of Muay Thai Kickboxing
What would you recommend & why?
