Judo - Steven Seagull is a huge fan, I think that should tell you all you need to know.

Tae Kwon Do - depending on the lineage is probably more sport than martial art.

Karate - depending on what kind (Shotokan maybe), is probably the most traditional. Personally, this would be my choice. You'll get beat up and learn striking/blocking, etc. Probably some grappling moves, mostly standing techniques and disarms, but not BJJ ground n pound, so you don't have to worry bout gettin a boner because you grabbed some guys taint.

Honestly just watch anime, if anime methods work for their protagonists why wouldn't they for you?

karate is mostly just learning steps and wont help you a lot in a fight imo

for taekwan do you have to be really fit and you will have to go through painful lessons too, trying to break stuff with your hand/feet. You cant really go through training without at least breaking 1,2 bones in half a year. Too extreme imo

Judo is nice. It's mostly "how do I throw this enemy" and "how do I fall savely" but I think those two are super important to know in general and should be something you can do anytime in any situation. Id say this is the one Id sign up for

overall, better just do some sports in general, cycling or jogging are awesome and will give you more kardio than any of those above ever will

but Ive never had actual karate/taekwan do/judo lessons so those are just outsider opinions here

karate is mostly just learning steps and actually contact fighting.

for taekwan do it's a sport martial art. If you're going to the olympics or want to be the best point fighter there ever was, do this.

Judo is great for people who think throwing your opponent is more effective than punching their face.

Was about to post how wrong you were in your post but then I saw your last sentence. Carry on my non-martial art oriented friend. I've been doing martial arts for 26 years, and you know nothing about what you speak. Practicality of an art comes from your teacher not the art itself. There are only so many ways that you can punch, kick, and throw effectively. Most martial arts teach you to fall properly so you absorb the impact and don't get hurt when someone sweeps the leg.

Your instructor is more important than the type of art when you're starting out. Do any and all of these you're interested in and stick with the one that YOU like the most. Most martial arts schools/studios will allow you take a few free classes to see if it's for you. It's really that easy. You aren't learning a 2,000 year old art to go fight in feudal Japan so it doesn't matter what you pick, as long as you stick with it.

BJJ would certainly be the most useful to learn if you're worried about 'real-world' fighting, however as Bronto described above at least half of their takedowns require you to 69 some other dude, so it's a hard pass from me. Taekwondo, while perhaps the least practical, always appealed to me the most. At the end of the day, you just got to do some research and find the one that speaks to you, practicality of each particular art shouldn't impact your decision tbh.

Try boxing with sparing and later mayhaps some wrestling or bjj
Yes, I know from whence I came! Discontented as a flame, Upon myself I live and glow. All I grasp like lightning flashes, All I leave behind is ashes
Flame I am - that much I know!
