ADHD Son - Physical activity recommendations?

Hi - I need a recommendation for a physical activity for my 9yo.  I was consider a martial art (which to choose?) or fencing.  I am located in Oakland and would appreciate any recommendations.

Trampoline or swimming.

For my son, activities with lots of running around worked well--like soccer.  Basketball, tennis and baseball were are activities he enjoyed.  It was harder for him to do activities that required a lot of stillness and discipline.  After all the sitting in school, he needed to run and get tired.  Also, look for a coach instructor that understands active kids.  Otherwise, it can be a nightmare.

I second the swimming rec. Kids with ADHD need intense whole body movement every day.
