From what you're describing, perhaps you'd be interested in Aikido.

I helped a 75-year old grandmother earn her black belt in my younger days. It took her several years to get there, but she definitely earned it. She could break a 1" thick hardwood plank by the time she was awarded the belt, and was quite effective in most other areas.

In short, anyone can do just about anything they set their mind on. You just need to be thoughtful, deliberate and persistent in your approach.

Learn Tae Kwon Do, it has served me very well, you use 80% legs and 20% hands, unlike Karate that uses 50/50...your legs are longer than your arms, hopefully, and much more powerful...

Re: is 25 too late to learn a martial art?
whatever you do,
don't waste time with a traditional martial art.

find a mixed martial art gym in your area and join that.

none of the other crap works.
mma or a gun, it's that simple.

Aikido is all about balance, it's flowing movements are very relaxing (albeit there's some fairly strenuous physicality involved at times), and it is strictly defense.

Too much jumping around and all that with TKD
