I'm thinking of starting some type of martial arts. I'm not a great leaper (I'm white 6'4" and weigh 270) so the high flying crap is out the window. I would like to find one that I could also involve the wife in that will help her mainly in self defense.

Well, Steven Seagal hasn't been able to lift his leg above his waist for several years, so I'm confident there's a martial arts discipline for every level of fitness.
Most of these places will let you sit in on a class before joining. That's a good idea, because finding an instructor you feel comfortable with will go a long way towards making the class beneficial for you.
