I agree with Troo..

But in terms of fighting...

If you agree that the ring is the only way to truly measure strength in combat (I really don't see how you can't)

Then learning Muay Thai plus Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Wrestling will yield the best results as proven by MMA.

I can see why some martial artists turn their nose up at it.

I mean the spiritual side of martial arts is lost in MMA... which is part of the reason many people do martial arts.

But I don't think anyone can turn their nose up at the fighting ability these guys have.

Back in the day when the MMA was new and various martial artists from a variety of backgrounds competed... these kung-fu, TaeKwonDo types etc would do very badly. There's a reason why MMA fighters are pretty much Boxers/Muay Thai/Wrestling/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighters who branch out into arts which complement their arts weaknesses. (The fighters which are Muay Thai pedigree will learn Wrestling/BJJ to complement their lack of ground and grappling skills and vice versa etc.)

I don't know about best, but I enjoy practising mau rakau. Enjoy watching kendo matches a lot too.

Kendo may not have the most practical applications but I love it.

It all depends on you. Martial Arts is about feeling. No-one can judge your feelings but you.



I, personally, am fond of Wing Chun, Ninjutsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, and Karate.

Sorry, I think I worded that a bit wrong. I meant, what do you guys think about Kuk Sool Wan, not me taking Kuk Sool Wan
