There are martial sports out there, even martial dances. True martial arts is not for everyone. It takes almost as much discipline as military service.

I went there because it's true. A normal civilian learning MA to defend him/herself needs to have the discipline to maintain study for years, so that one incident doesn't catch them unprepared. The military trains to go into combat, which will inevitably happen. I train over and over what to do in a combat situation, so that when the day comes, I know what I'm doing, and don't panic. Speaking of which, I need to request a training day for all the CLS.

Exercise, healthy diet, and good hygiene are beneficial for everyone. Nothing more specific than that can be "for everyone".
However, everyone can be given the opportunity of trying out martial arts, and anything else really, if they want to. How else would you know if something is really "for you"?
