Fighting has always interested me. I am by no means a combat athlete; in fact, my reaction to getting punched is to turn my back…(wish I was joking) I want to try something which could help me defend myself if I ever needed to; but I also want to learn because I love watching UFC, shows like Fight Quest, etc.
I play football in the fall, and rugby in the spring. Currently I focus on lifting in the winter and summer, but have been considering using that time to learn some type of fighting style.
My question is, what would you guys suggest I sign up for? I’ve been thinking about Muay Thai, Savate, or just plain old boxing. At 6’1’, 200, and 16 years old, what would be my best bet?
