Well I recently graduated high school , but when I was in the school I played rugby , and baseball . I do lift weights and go on jogs , also nature walks in the woods and creeks . I do a little martial arts but nothing big mostly training with a old man who is a forth degree black belt . I don't do it for ranks or anything officially , I do it just for self defense .

You have a good foundation of fitness, thats cool. I started Brazilian Jiujitsu a couple of years ago, its great for self defense (especially if you already know the basics of punching and defending punches) and the cardio is intense! Id highly recommend it.

Actually that's one of the foundations of what my master (martail arts ) is teaching me . It is pretty intense , but I mostly am just reading through PDFs about the forms and other styles because he is kinda busy and we live kinda far away so we don't get to meet up alot .

Ah, ok. If you have a job it would be worth it to find a gym and train with other people. Grappling especially is something where you absolutely have to have training partners. Really you need sparring partners for everything but you can learn to do the footwork and the motions of striking attack and defense through shadowboxing and bag work (it wont be nearly as good as proper sparring but it may be enough to give you a chance), not so with grappling; the techniques require the weight and momentum of the other person. You really have to experience it to understand it.
BJJ is pretty awesome man. The first couple months can be hard because its humbling. You spar right off the bat and when you roll with people who have been doing it for a while, it shows you how un-ready you really are for a fight. If you can be persistent though it becomes a real power in your life. Not only can you fight but you know how to persist under real stress. Plus it keeps you in good shape and gives you a reason not to smoke; so you dont get tapped! ;-)
