    Anybody here do any sort of martial arts? I'm wondering how effective it will be in building just general tone/strength..I would definitely like to start, but I'm not quite sure where to start, any help?

    If you're just looking for fitness Krav Maga or wrestling would probably get you in shape the fastest.

    Capoeira if you wanted some good core conditioning as well.

    Depends on what kind of martial art you're pursuing... Ring arts like boxing, wrestling, Muay Thai etc. tend to turn out the best in terms of physique.

    tell us more information about yourself. if you're still in highschool/college, join the wrestling team.

    if you're out of school, and strapped for cash, judo can usually be cheaply found almost everywhere; cheap price does not mean cheap instruction.

    if you're out of school, and can afford $80-100/mo, bjj/mma schools are popping up all over and offer a great chance to work your ass into shape.

    unless you're doing kyokushin karate, you're just about wasting your time with it (karate). stick to the major MA, muay thai, boxing, wrestling, bjj, judo, sambo (if you can find it).
