What are the main varieties? I know that there are schools of Karate, Judo (both of which I studied in another lifetime), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Tai Chi, some kind of Filipino stick fighting or something? Where might one find a list or brief discussion of a wide variety? I know very little about this and would like to know more.

Just bookmarking but I'll leave this link. It's not definitive but it's a good start.

Personally, I think oil paints are the best
though some would argue for pastels and watercolors
and the others (you know, "the others")

work with harmony and melody
and simply reduce you to a bunch of chords ...

The horror and degradation of a symphony!
I do not think we should be aural.
The best defense is a splash of composition
made in the visually offensive genre

... of impressionistic painting.

Perhaps e.g. Martial Info can be helpful as well.

Thank you. Interesting video at the latter link.

I was looking through some books at Borders. Aikido looks interesting. It seems to emphasize re-directing your opponent's energy. In my fairly uneducated opinion, a punching/kicking discipline like Karate is not useful without also knowing a close quarters grappling discipline.

There is one that doesn't seem to be in my first link. Shoot Boxing. It's similar to Kickboxing but also includes throws and grapples.

The aim in disciplines like Karate is to finish your opponent off before they have a chance to grapple with you. It doesn't always work though...

I've never finished an opponent

This is the 2nd time you've posted off topic here, and not because the thread inevitably went off on an honest tangent, as threads sometimes do. At the risk of getting a lot of laughs, might I ask you to show some respect for another person's thread?

Thank you so much. The other problem with Karate is that if you are not dealing with a mugger or criminal, punching and kicking may be more than you really want to do to the guy. Actually, I haven't been in the situation for about 30 years. I find this stuff fascinating, and feel an urge to take it up again, but it's not a very sensible urge. I'm kind of too old and too busy.
