Keeping it "western":

The absolute best martial art you need to learn first is Sprinting. Getting the hell away from danger as fast as possible is a great first step.

MMA is an excellent option if you have it, but old school Vale Tudo is better for real life applications (headbutts, groin strikes, eye gouges, etc are all included).

Many of the best MMA fighters, elite soldier units/ spec ops guys, etc praise Krav Maga as the best "street" style to learn; so I have to go with that.

Runner Up: Combat Sambo. Brutal style from Russia without the high overhead of time that Systema training insists on.

If you like batons, check out Bata, Irish Stick Fighting, for some fun historical stuff.

I guess if you wanted to go pure western styles, you could always look into French Savate and Greco-Roman Wrestling.

But hey, it doesn't matter where it comes from, if it works it works.

Heh, sprinting is one martial art I can master. The great thing about it is that my legs are so long, when I take off bounding, I look so fast people assume they can't catch me, even though I don't have the stamina to keep up a sprint for very long.

I know how to handle any sort of long and swingable weapon, other than that I don't have much fighting experience. I'm still training though.

Well... this run away thing is conventional wisdom, but it seems to be good advice for personal self defense. However as a "superhero" if you aren't trying to protect someone from harm, then why are you even in a fight in the first place? So if you run away, you'd better carry them or something... Razz

Pugilism!

All the way. Fists way up and out. That's the way. Fisticuffs I say!

Ne'er-do-well!

Sadly... I actually talk like that sometimes...
