I’ll give you my opinion- plain and simple. You yourself can research this and see if it is a good fit for yourself.
5 years ago I asked myself a similar question to what you are asking here. I have a brother who serves in the US Army, Special Forces. He has served for over 30 years and continues to do so. I thought, “who better to ask? He knows I’m a girl, he knows my strengths and weaknesses.” He recommended to me a style called Krav Maga. Krav Maga, meaning contact combat, is a military self-defence and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces and Israeli security forces. derived from a combination of techniques sourced from boxing, wrestling, aikido, judo and karate, along with realistic fight training.
I myself enjoy boxing as a hobby/exercise activity. However, I have found Krav to be life changing. To my surprise I found several experts in my area and ended up enrolling in classes near me. I still go. Good luck!
