I wasn't sure whether to put this in the UFC thread, but I thought it would be a bit off-topic.
I am interested in starting to do a martial art, however I'm not sure which one to do. I'm 16 with a fairly average frame (6ft, 78 kg). I want to gain good self defense ability whilst being able to both striking and grappling. The first martial art which comes to mind on that basis is Krav Maga but I'm not sure if there's another which is better on the above basis. Any advice is appreciated.
