I'm looking to get into some kickboxing-like sport at the IMA next quarter. Last year I took about a quarter and a half of Aikido, but I think I'm looking for something that's a little less disciplined and that will show me better how to beat the living crap out of a punching bag. I know discipline is very important for martial arts, but right now I'm looking for something with a focus on aggressiveness and where I can get into realistic sparring techniques pretty quickly. (Aikido doesn't seem like something you can even start to use, even sparring with a random non-Aikido user, until you have years of practice.) I'm not in great shape, but I'm hoping to take the "fight club" approach to fitness here combined with other training...My final year of computer science will give me plenty of aggression to spend.

Can anyone recommend an appropriate sport or art that they usually teach at the IMA, or very close to north campus? Is kickboxing one of the things they have there?
