      >is it a good martial art?
      Yes it's one of the best. It builds explosiveness, an amazing cardio, and it's also just fun.
      >will it help you fuck someone up in the street?
      Yes, training fighting makes you better at fighting. But you shouldn't do any martial art with this purpose.
      >is it dangerous?
      Anything is dangerous if you're a spaz or not careful. Driving is one of the most dangerous things you can do and you drive every day probably.

      >judo is too technical
      Uh maybe that's because your gym was no good? Or you have ADD or something? Haven't heard of that before.
      >bjj meme
      BJJ is submission grappling. If you train BJJ you will be able to choke anyone or break anyone's arm if you are in a pure grappling situation on the ground. Even if you are much lighter or weaker than them.
      ...the thing is, you will probably only get in those situations in BJJ class or BJJ competitions. Obviously, for self-defense, you want to learn how to do BJJ while avoiding strikes (MMA) and how to actually get someone on the ground (Judo/wrestling) while dodging their punches on the feet (MMA/boxing/Muay Thai).

        Bjj is judo, submission grappling is wrestling with submissions, something different

          BJJ is very different from judo. You don't win by pinning someone in BJJ

            Correct. You win by submitting someone in the grappling sport of BJJ, which is why it's known by everyone in the world except that anon as "submission grappling."

      any martial art that has you regularly sparring will have you absolutely destroying any random on the street bro, don't worry about which one is the best.

      just type in whatever martial art + street fight into youtube and the trained guy always wipes the floor with the untrained, it's not even really a contest. when most people get in a fight they just start flailing around; someone who spars isn't going to panic as much and automatically defaults to much more effective movements than wild haymakers

      just do whatever you enjoy most. no point training the 'best' martial art if you can't be bothered going more than once a week and quit after 6 months vs. something 'suboptimal' that you work at like a dog and reach a very high level of proficiency

        This is 100% true but you have to keep in mind weapons and numbers. Training a martial art strictly for "self-defense" and not doing other things like gun training, awareness training, sprints training, etc. is simply a bad idea.

        Now, if you want to train a martial art because it's really fun, challenging, and rewarding, and you get the side-benefit of it being good for self-defense, that's great. But if your only goal is "I need to get better at self-defense," you should absolutely do the things mentioned above and training a martial arts is no substitute.

      ive been in several fights (basically due to stupidity and depression)

      i still feel anxiety and thought learning grappling might help idk

      I wrestled in middle and highschool (highschool was a really small school of like 400 students total but won state wrestling championship 5 years running) and it 100% is useful in a fight, especially when you've drilled everything as much as we did. Becomes absolute second nature to get wrist and neck control, defend against "shoots" (people a lot of times will charge you rather than throw a punch) and just general positioning.

      I'd supplement something like jiujitsu and/or some kind of striking, because wrestling, though really fucking good for controlling someones' body, at the end of the day you're pinning their shoulders to a mat.

    Sort of gay but a good off season sport for high school aged football players.

      It's fun way to compete with the boys and get a decent hour and a half to two hours of exercise in, reccomended after the day is over and you can immediately clean up and go out to eat somewhere.

      i'm 29 and just interested in learning for "self defence"

      am i coping?

        good luck finding a gym that actually specialises in wrestling. I've never heard of a pure wrestling gym. Usually its lumped in together with MMA or BJJ

          there a martial arts gym near where i live which does Judo, BJJ, and wrestling classes on different days

          I just dont know if its worth it, or if just being big and pushing/ hitting/ headbutting is enough irl

        Yeah. People live entire lifetimes without going through a single fight nowadays, that's normal.

            I will rephrase then, it's not unusual for an entire lifetime if a civilized non-retard to not contain a single fight in it

        If you're interested in self-defense you need to buy a gun or move to an all-white neighborhood. There's no bigger group of larpers than guys who think blow job jitsu 3 times a week is going to keep them from getting curb stomped by a roving band of Tyrones.

            While he is crude, I agree with him that, if you want to know "self-defense," you should absolutely get a gun and gun training. This is pretty common sense, actually.
