Kenpo / TKD / BJJ / MT - MMA in gen effectiveness

what would the best style be to start my kid out with. I might myself take a class or 2 as well. But with the ways people fight today vs the training style of each specific style of martial arts, what would the most effective be for real scenarios, what would the best one be for conditioning, and the best be for general knowledge of an overall outlook or enrty point.

With minimal knowledge of martial arts it seems like someone could learn a whole book of kata and every time someone was to attack in real life they would always result to the same technique.

what are your opinions?

Learn to be a nice friendly guy, and teach your son that too.

It really depends on the school/training studio/ gym. Trying going to each one and spending a month there testing the waters and seeing which one you like.

for sure.. absolutely. I just want my daughter to learn to be a little more confident / assertive. Plus to be assured that she has self confidence as well as the ability to protect herself as well as knowing what situations to avoid. IMO those things can help you in life as well as other sports ect.

Peronally I am training cause I want to get into MMA but depending on why you want to take classes or allow your kids to i guess it would differ. But I would say for just basic self defense and getting a good workout, feeling better about yourself etc I would just go with thai kickboxing and BJJ, that is not only a great base for competing in MMA but also self defense etc

BJJ is one of the most practical. Aikido isn't very MMA conducive, but is also great for self defense- the philosophy behind it is fantastic it can really teach you to become a level headed, thoughtful, decent human being.
Muay Thai is definitely a confidence builder, but might be a little much for a first time martial art- especially a young child.
Judo would be very child friendly- it is also a competitive martial art, which can teach good sportsmanship, confidence and discipline.
