While not quite on target with what you're asking, I've been taking Combat Hapkido lessons for a few months now, and have really been enjoying it.

What initially appealed to me was that it is a martial arts geared toward the more practical aspects of self-defense. You do not have to be in great shape to learn and practice it -- my instructor has to be close to 400lbs.

"I am 6' 4" and weighed over 400 pounds when I earned my black belt. My kicks are not high and pretty; I am not the fastest or most limber person you will meet. But I stuck with it and earned my 2nd degree black belt. DO NOT let stereotypes of what you think you have to be, to learn a martial art stop you from trying. I didn't and look where I am now"

My head's spinning from this. "I'm fat, slow, and inflexible, but they still gave me this neato belt?"
