The world is already changing. The people are also changing too. This is the new era. This is the era of corruption, collusion, crime, and fighting. This is a sensitive era. For example; just read the news today, read about how the Israel army attacks the non-profit organization ship for Gaza. This situation is different than 200 years ago. In 1800, the world is on peace. There was less crime than now.
You have to protect yourself. You can do it by learning self defense technique. There are many kinds of self defense technique. It called martial art. You can choose from many different continents in the world. In Africa there are Tahtib (Egyptian Stick Fencing), Kuta (Ancient Egyptian Fist Fighting), Surma stickfighting, Dambe, Nguni Stick Fighting, Obnu Bilate or Laamb Wrestling. You can also pick from the American region;Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Capoeira, Luta Livre, Maculele, or Vale Tudo. From Asia continent, you can choose Silat from Indonesia, Sumo, Shorinji kempo, Wushu, Kung Fu, Taekkyeon, Taekwondo, or Tang soo do. You can see from my writing that there are so many kinds or martial arts.
You don’t have to learn all of the martial arts. Just pick the one you like. You may observe it first. Go to the nearest training hall, see the movement for a while, then decide it whether you like it or not. To choose a martial art, you have to use heart. It is useless, if you pick it randomly. You will not learn the essence of the art. Each martial art is different than the other, by technique and heart.
You can choose how you want to protect yourself. If you only want to learn how to quickly disable your opponent, then I suggest something like kempo, or jujitsu. If you want to , make your opponent suffer from just one hook, then boxing is the answer. Just pick one with your heart.
