From the time I was a kid I've always flirted with the idea of taking marshal arts lessons but never have (and still probably won't after this thread).
Are any of you experienced martial artists? Have any of you started as an adult?
What particular style would you recommend for an inflexible guy in his 30's? Its not like I expect to fight off a gang of bikers anytime soon, but some styles just seem like learning matrial arts based dance moves.
