I'm dealing with a bit of a problem. I currently train in Japanese Ju Jitsu and there are no other JJJ schools within 90 minutes of here. My school is closing the my choices to replace it are limited. I have no one I can talk to in person, as everyone I know either has no idea or they're involved in a club and they push whatever they're doing with little thought as to what I need. People get passionate when talking about their styles. I'm leaning toward a Goju Ryu karate school. I trained in it for a while in my younger years, and I think it will fit in with my current skills nicely. I keep second-guessing the choice, as I was still very junior and my last school was focused on art more than self defense. The school here takes conditioning and defense seriously, but I worry that Goju will not be practical enough for me. I'm a small guy, and my takedowns keep me out of trouble at work (law enforcement) and I hope Goju Ryu would help round out my skills. It seems to be a close combat style that compliments JJJ nicely. My other nearby options are Muay Thai, but I don't strike if I can avoid it as I train so I can arrest people without injury, or BJJ, but I don't want to ground fight if I can avoid it. While I know that BJJ is the art of choice for some police officers, again I'm small and the risk level in a grappling match changes drastically when you're carrying weapons on your belt. I worked my ground fighting a lot in JJJ so I can escape and re-engage from a standing position. All three are good schools with quality instructors. Although the Muay Thai and BJJ are incredibly expensive, they also have better instructors/facilities and I can afford to go to any of them. Not easily, but I can manage. Sorry for the long post. I'm hoping there are people on here who train on Goju who can confirm/deny whether it will suit me.
