I didn't know classes like that existed ...makes sense though. It sounds interesting.
Different people will attack a child than an adult. I think someone willing to attack an adult is probably more willing to do immediate harm and will be less easily deterred though. Is some basic fighting...
Eh, I don't want all of those things packaged together. Just as many as possible. I also do know how to eat sleep and exercise properly, but I just would love some motivation to keep doing so.

Thanks everyone! Lots of good suggestions!
I'm living in Cambridge,MA (right next to Boston, MA).. so I have access to lots of options.
Dagger escrima sparring looks like fun but I expect I'd never find people to spar with!
You know, judo or jujitsu sound like it might be a good fit for me...
I'm looking to choose a martial art.
I'd like for it to give me some degree of self defense.
I'd like for it to include real sparring and maybe even a competitive fight occasionally.
I'd prefer it were a hard martial art.
I want good nutrition/sleep/heavy exercise to benefit me
I do NOT want to...
