[QUOTE] juitsu or aikido would be good if you would prefer a grappling art, because you will use your opponents strength against them rather that your strength against theirs. [/QUOTE]

a grappling art sounds good because I am not very strong.

I used to take karate when I was younger but I only got to yellow belt and we moved, I haven't looked in to a new school since.
But just recently, I went to a martial arts school near me and met the teacher, he was really nice and there were only 3 people to his classes. The first thing he teaches you are self defence moves to get your opponent down long enough for you to run. Then he gets into the more complicated stuff later.
