Depends on what you want.

You'll have to be more specific.

Ask yourself a few questions based around the main things you want out of the Martial Art.

Do you want to compete in competitions?

If yes what type of competitions e.g. Full contact, semi contact, light contact, submission etc.

Do you want to fight standing up just using your legs and arms?

Do you want to fight on the floor?

Do you want to be able to throw people?

Do you want a mixture of the above?

Do you want to get fit?

Do you want to learn how to defend yourself?

Do you want to be able to fight for real?

Do you want to be able to do the flash things you see in the movies?

Be honest with yourself as I don't personally have a problem with people that want to do Martial Arts to get fit and be able to do a few spinning kicks - but this is a league away from real fighting.

So if you can answer the above questions honestly (if you don't you won't get the right advice!) and then we might be able to help.

Something else important, What is offered in your area?

Don't be lazy,look in your area-find what styles they teach,research those styles.You have a great research tool,the internet-though be wary of what you read.
Visit the schools,talk to the instructor,talk to the students, observe a class. Then make a decision.
Do not rely on others to make up your mind for you.
