    Thank you! To be honest I do not know yet. The one I know about most is kung fu because of Bruce Lee.

    Where I live, martial arts is not a big deal. So there are no dojo or dojang around. So I am still looking. I come to website to find martial art.

    Thank you! I will research the Systema, but you said that Judo and Aikido were studied in Russia, yes? I think that is more the style of me. I'm no brutal person needed for systema :shamefullyembarrased:

    Welcome to the forum...

    Apart from the arts which you have mentioned, you may find a Tae Kwon Do school, I know that Russian president Vladimir Putin has been presented with a black belt and made a grandmaster of taekwondo during an official visit to South Korea, and that he will do his part promoting the South-Korean-born fighting style in Russia.

    Well which ever art you decide to do, I hope that you have a great time...123
