    The only Kung Fu that I'd consider taking is Win Chun or however it's spelled. And JKD, but I'm not sure if that's Kung Fu or not.

    its going to be realllly hard to find any school that teaches any of those styles that are legit, w/o going to china, japan, etc... see whats around you.. also alot of the styles are worthless on the street till your at a very advanced level... all that spin jump kicking stuff does not work in real life... what are you looking to get out of MA, set your goal then find whats around you, how legit they are, and take it from there...
    in my opionon, muay thai is the way to go, prob the most efficient quickest to learn and teaches you to destroy a person from head to toe.

    also JKD is a philosophy not an art..a great philosophy at that
    Bench: 295 lb (134.1 kg)
    Bicep Curl: 111 lb (50.5 kg)
    Squat: 320 lb (145.5 kg)

    Deadlift: 209 lb (95.0 kg)
    Overhead Press: 196 lb (89.1 kg)

    I kick and get kicked in the head for fun...

    I have to agree with this. Really, why do you want to study Kung Fu? I have had many ex-Kung Fu practioners train with me in BJJ/MMA, some had trained a very long time with reputable Kung Fu schools, BUT they all said Kung Fu was next to worthless against BJJ/MMA or on the street.

    You might want to look for something more realistic in a martial art, and save yourself a lot of time, money, and embarrassment if you ever need something more reality-based.

    Well, in my humble opinion, i train in Hun Gar, and im going to go out on a limb and say that most non grappling martials arts teach alot of the same concepts (drilling kicks, puches, sparring) but the biggest differences would be in the individual schools and the teachers, go to a few classes and find out what the school is all about and if you enjoy it.

    San Shou if you can find it. It's not traditional Kung Fu, but rather a combination of Chinese striking styles, along with Chinese wrestling. It looks something like freestyle kickboxing combined with judo. If not, I'd personally look into the southern fist style. I personally feel punching is far more important than kicking.

    For real fighting, wing chun and iron monkey. For focus and steadiness, flexibility and awareness, Tai chi quan, Wu, Sun, or Yang long form.

    You might want to look for something more realistic in a martial art, and save yourself a lot of time, money, and embarrassment if you ever need something more reality-based.
    I'm sure Cung Le would beg to differ about the embarrassment and reality based part. My first choice would be Wing Chun as far as streetfighting goes, and then San Shou.

    what do i want out of it?
    the ability to defend myself and others, not to offend.
    also i would like to have something that is entertaining to watch someone do.

    i'm a little guy, no real muscle, have tried to save a couple dansel in distress many times before and usually ended up in the hospital.

    my uncle just recently got into MMA and is now on a team for fighting, he's using it as a stress reliever due to his temper and bipolar disorder.

    btw, i have a hung-gar instructional video that is complete crap, can't learn anything from it and it looks like the most retarded, useless, wussy martial art i've ever seen.

    For the love of christ, there's some bad advice in here. Wing Chun for streetfights? Yeah, k.

    If you want to honestly take a real look into Martial Arts, check out www.bullshido.net and see what people are saying around there. They've also got a health and fitness forum where people discuss weight training and such for practical MA purposes.

    I think there are great advices in the thread such as checking the option offered in the school next to your house and trying to figure out what do you want to gain from the martial arts training. Such thought processes are important if you know what you want and know how much effort you can invest in it then you are better able to achieve your goals. see for example the discussion on the issue of open hand vs. sword techniques here

    you have the best resource available to researh each style (the internet) but you will find usually people that study a certain style claim that is the best.

    My recomendation to you is wing chun and some style such as ju jitsu.

    Wing chun to become a master with your hands and jitsu so you can learn what to do if you ever fall with someone to the ground.

    You NEED to know both cause one minute you may be standing the next you may be on the floor.

    jeet kune do is also as good as wing chun as it borrows heavily from it..as well as boxing and many other styles that make street sense science.

    I reckon most people here would suggest either Wing Chun, Jeet Kune Do (doubt they have an official teacher, but its just a concept anyway), Or Sanda/San Shou. Also Wushu is more like a sport/performance not as much a martial art.
