I don't know if this is the correct forum to be postsing this, but it is bugging me. A lot. I am 32, have done some karate, some Judo and some Muay Thai, all of it in my adult life (read after I finished studying and started earning) as I was pretty hotheaded when I was a kid and my parents did not let me learn any martial art then.
Now I have lost all interest in Karate, except for a passing interest in bunkai. I am wavering between Judo and Muay Thai. Which one do I choose? Even if I factor in everything - like the time to be spent in each, the distance of the dojo from my house, the expenses involved in each, the quality of instruction in each, the expertise of the coach, etc., it is still a close call.
I like Muay Thai, but fear that my body will not be able to handle it. Judo also I like but I think I will miss out on striking. Judo seems more regimented, which kind of appeals to me. MT is more freeform, which also appeals to me... and also puts me off a wee bit. Which one do I choose? Is there a middle path out? As mentioned, I am 32 now. In a few years, I will be 40 and most probably will not be able to learn stuff then. I'd like to choose one and stick with it before I reach that age.
All responses are appreciated and thanks in advance to all those who chip in.
