| | Re: What martial art should I learn?
Jujutsu, Aikido, Judo, Hapkido... Most throwing arts work better for smaller people.
But if you are insistent on "striking back" then the art doesn't really matter. It's how easily you can pull the moves off. For example, you may find Muay Thai hard and confusing while you might find karate easy and better for you.
Feel free to message me on any Japanese martial arts.
