You are in general not really supposed to be suited to the style of martial arts.

I would tend to agree with this. An enlightened school or teacher should be able to show the student how to adapt the style to that particular student's capabilities. At the same time, the student should strive to master the style's techniques as much as possible. It's a two way street. Much like marriage, both sides must have the flexibility to accommodate each other.

Don't understand why you say you're not suited for karate. None of your 5 reasons seem to be limiting. The only consideration I see is your lack of leg flexibility. But that is easily overcome by choosing a karate style that does not stress high kicks. Most traditional Okinawan styles fit that requirement. Most all of their kicks are aimed at the lower half of the body.

Judo or jujitsu may be a good options as well, and your balance and strength will come into play. Quick reactions are great for any MA. Maybe wing chun?
