Your best style depends on you. Judo people are solid/stout with good upper body strength. Taekwondo have runner bodies. Northern KungFu styles were developed in sparsely populated areas. They have wider spaces in fighting. Southern styles evolved in densely populated cities and would fight as if in a crowded bar brawl. These are gross simplifications. My personal preference is mixed martial arts (boxing/muy thai /tkd) these are striking styles. I am a novice at grappling. Find a good instructor. Take what is useful, discard what isn't..
Not quite. Judo's more of an art for the small, since you primarily use the momentum of the opponent against them. TKD was originally invented for ppl who wanted to kick horsemen down to the ground, but yeah, given that Koreans generally grew up in the plains, running would be a must. You'd be right with the other two.

i have to say it is never too late to learn martial arts. i started learning at the age of 4. my dad started at the age of 35. As for style i prefer taekwondo. taekwondo taught me to break through two inches of solid wood 12 inch by 12 inch with my foot.

Hey its never to late to start martial arts. Martial arts helps your concentration, balance, memory and fitness so its good for all ages young and old. I started martial arts because there are so many people that will try to pick a fight with you these days and its good to know to to defend your self. I do kempo witch is a martial art that focus on Karate, Jujitsu and aikido so it is very interesting to learn. I have also just started MMA and it keeps you very fit its very full on.

taekwondo is quite easy and you mainly use kicks

. If you can walk, you're not too young. If you can still walk, you're not too old. . Pick a style that has a classroom nearby. Ie, it doesn't really matter. You can always switch later, if another style strikes your fancy.

Just a quick Q..., - When do you think is it to late to start learning marrtial arts?

After you are dead. Before that, if you can move and stand up, there is a chance.

Well i mean if you want to be good at it , is there a bad age to start learning.

See last question/answer.

Also When is it a good age to learn a form of Martial Arts?

See first question / answer. :-)

And If any of you do Martial Arts, what is the best type to learn e. g Jujitsu, judo, Karate, Kung Fu......e.t.c

I concentrated mostly on Isshinryu when younger. I have since picked up a little form a few other forms of Karate, and tai quan do (Tai Ji Quan), but use them for keeping myself more fit than I would just sitting around, and for balance and co-ordination. I do have a "slow" perception of how fast the world is moving about me, making me look hyperactive much of the time. (reference: my forum topic on Radio Labs, NY)

I took Tae Kwon Do. . . Maybe start anywhere between age 12-30, when you're still kinda flexible. Stiffer you get, the harder permorming is
