I currently have two choices I have in mind, Karate or Taekwondo. I have looked at documentaries on both and both look effective in self-defense. However when I look at Taekwondo, their arsenal of kicks seem powerful, but their balance is horrible which is a major combat when in a fighting situation. In Karate, I also see powerful moves, but at the same time, their is not as much speed as Taekwondo. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I ask these questions because I want to use these martial arts to protect loved ones so please, give me a good and honest answer.

Thanks!
