I am an Aikidoka and I am thinking about trying a new MA. I have done Aikido for a couple of years and loved it, but, after doing a couple of years of a non-violent type of MA (and playing Tekken) I want to try something that I can use more effectivly in a real life situation. In other words a lot more violent. Stuff like breaking bricks and wood,learning how to punch and kick, becoming more athletic but with an emphasise on fighting rather than defending myself. I know that I may sound like a sadist, but I have to try it. I have been thinking maybe Muay Thai or Boxing or Taekwondo or something like that (i'm not really one for throwing. I want more punching, kicking, knees, elbows, you know what I mean). Can you help me out by telling me some different MA that would interest me. Thanks.
