What's wrong with starting with Ubuntu or Mint or similar? Arch is hard if you've never configured Linux before and Kali gives you too much power to easily mess up. If that's your thing, go for it. You'll learn more from Arch than Kali about Linux starting out because of the way it's configured. Kali is a Debian derivative similar to Ubuntu or Mint but geared towards pentesting. I'd not advice to use it as is for daily use, but with enough changes to the configuration it can probably be used securely. About the tutorials; you could read/search the forum for ideas.

Arch. Arch was my first distro, and it taught me a ton about linux. You can make it behave exactly the way you want. Plus...pacman.

Never used Kali, but I feel like it spoon feeds you, and as has been said, cannot really be used as a main distro for non-pentesting things.

Arch all the way!
