It's really violent. I have done Karate which is decent for beginners, Kempo which is more athletic moves and kicks, and then kickboxing which I've competed in back in the day

I'd say Tai Chi, Kempo, or Jeet kun do

I don't want beginners. I have been going to Boxercize if you must add the ercize at the end for two years now. Something similar to Tae bo maybe? I know my punches and preliminary kicks. The kicks really get yer ass. I love the training aspect of boxing. Punching bag, running still, squats... all at a hardcore fast as you can oh my god I am going to die interval.
I want a good workout, but something new and interesting too. I want to work hard. Force, strength, attaCKK!

I want to join Rocky's Gym. *Seriously. I want to box, but Martial Arts seem more accessible.

ok then take either kickboxing or a Kempo class, those are both great workouts and have a high power emphasis

ok, my brother told me that if you want to try muy thai kickboxing, he has told me it is a great form of cardio exercise, and realistically, its great for self defense if you really want to kick ass. he also told me they have some great schools in canada also. i think you mentioned you were in canada? you should check into some of those schools in montreal since i know you will be moving there soon. but thats what he told me to tell you. good luck

ah... My preferences are in the circular and hard forms of martial arts....

I once thought about going to China and joining a Shaolin monastery to learn kung fu... Hey, it's still an option.

Peeking in here kind of late, I'm going to have to agree with Cajun. I know a young lady who studies/teaches Kempo. It emphasizes hand striking speed, and she is hella fast. The only place where I think Kempo falls short is grappling, so her school mixes Jiu Jitsu in with the Kempo. Apparently that's quite common.

One afternoon at her dojo I watched one of her green belts take on a 3rd degree black belt in TaeKwonDo. I was very surprised that it wasn't even a contest. The TKD girl would fire a kick, and .00001 seconds later she'd be flat on her back with a knee on her throat. It was mighty impressive.

Muay Thai is also pretty cool. the main difference between it and "normal" kickboxing is that in Muay Thai you also use knees and elbows. Also, when you kick in Muay Thai, I belive you connect with the shin as opposed to the instep of the foot, so you can do a lot of damage.

All in all, I'm afraid you might be limited to the styles that are offered in your area. In my area, 90% of the schools are TKD, and if you want something else, you're in for a drive.

Oh, btw... gurls that fight are hehehe

Angel, if you do become a professional boxer, would you please challenge Tonya Harding to a match and kick her ass? Thank you.
