Is there a type of martial art that is easy to learn and good for beginners? I know Brazilian Jiu Jitsu isn’t for me and was wondering if there was something more basic involving more hand to hand combat.
It depends on what you are looking for. Do you want something that will help you get fit via a cardio workout? Do you want something that can be easily applied to self-defense? In reality it is all about the art that is best for YOU, and the ones that readers of your post recommend might all be turn-offs to you.
For guidance, I suggest you check out my book. Soon it will be for sale on this site, but for now it is on Amazon.
