Aikido vs Krav Maga for real life self-defense?
Hello all! I’m completely new to the whole martial arts scene and I’ve been investigating which one I want to focus my attention on. I have been doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 2 weeks now and I’m not gunna lie, I don’t think it’s for me. The fact that you never punch your opponent kinda sucks for street self-defense. Also, you always have to bring them down on the ground. I want a martial art that will help me with ACTUAL self-defense. I don’t care how pretty something is, I just want to kick the ass of whoever is trying to kick mine. I’ve been watching Aikido and Krav Maga videos on youtube and they both look like viable systems for a smaller individual like myself (5’9″ but really skinny). Any advice would be great.
PS dojo’s for both are extremely close so you don’t have to worry about that.
