    What do you think about western martial arts.

    I've always wanted to learned martial arts, but since I become a Christian it's like I lost my chance. It's not for self-defense or exercise, I just have a heavy interest in it.

    I'm not sure why you feel that becoming a Christian precludes you from practicing Eastern martial arts: there's no requirement to convert to Buddhism for instance.  However, there are two Western fighting styles that are often overlooked when people consider learning a martial art: boxing and fencing.

    Whilst fencing is great fun and a wonderful way of sharpening reflexes, it isn't very practical day to day for self-defence.  However, boxing is a wonderful all round sport and a useful skill to have.  I'd recommend it.
