If you know of additional criteria, then feel free to list the things you already know you are looking for in your question. You should also always talk to the instructor of any art you are taking to see if that individual instructor can help you in those aspects.

Sure, but from my perspective that doesn't significantly impact the art you choose. Good conditioning, knowledge of locks and strikes, etc and then you make a decision in the situation the degree of force that is warranted.

There is also a thread for discussing the topicality of recommendation questions. I think the question could be better phrased as "what do I need to keep in mind/look for when choosing a martial art as a bouncer?"

comment Shoulder Tension
My current art has a lot of structural similarity to aikido in this respect, and uses some of the same concepts of energy. Certainly something I can focus on more.

comment Training Body Reading Without Sparring
That's a really excellent approach for learning to read the other person as a matter of personal work. Not quite what I am looking for since I am looking for drills to train others with, but I may adapt it as a way of explaining how to frame it.
