i've been doing Kung Fu San Soo since i was 7 years old (i'm 20 now) and it's not as showy as you would think. its Shaolin Kung Fu that likes to be all flashy. my kung fu which was passed straight down from jimmy woo (the man who first introduced kung fu san soo to america) is meant to be practical and actually a bit brutal. or as my father, who was promoted to master 2 years ago, likes to say, "kung foo is like a dirty street fight that we're gonna win"

If anyone manages to gain infinite stamina, then that's the style to go to.   
 
I'd rather take up boxing.....................knock a bitch down with a good blow to the temple.

How about Aikido?  I don't know what makes something "showy", but seeing bodies fly around at all kinds of crazy angles looks kinda flashy to me.  And anyone I've seen doing it online always looks so calm, like they would yawn if they weren't flipping some guy on their neck, lol.

I don't know if it's the most showy, but stuff like Keysi struck me as people trying way too hard to make their style edgy.
