The grips generally differ, but you can get a high wrist grip on a longbow and a low wrist on a recurve so the grip is pretty much a personal preference thing.
Both longbows and recurves are generally in about the same ballpark speedwise (comparing apples to apples, ya can't compare a top end recurve to a PSE longbow and expect to see the same performance, vice-versa, my custom Morrison ACS longbow will smoke just about any production recurve)
For a beginner, a longer recurve is usually the best bet. It has the length and mass to be forgiving and is generally easier to learn to shoot. The last thing I would advise a learner to pick up is a short, radical reflex/deflex longbow, there is no weight in them, and all short bows are more difficult to shoot well.
I use both for hunting, and have no trouble handling a 62" recurve or a 64" longbow out of a tree stand.
A pop up blind is another story.

The only way one could seriously hit you is in the nads. You'd be rolling on the ground while the little gremlin waddles off down the yellow brick road
