I will let you in on a little secret, most martial arts aren't very effective in the real world, or in real scenarios. Most arts are only effective
against other people who maybe practice the same or similar art in tournament settings.
You want the most effective forms of fighting, for tournament and real life scenarios?
The small ones:
Real Street Fighting. There is a rule in Street Fighting, that one should truly, as much as possible, avoid kicking above the knees. Watch a good
fighter brawl, and witness what happens to people who jump around, raising their legs trying to display their "skill." They get softened up real
Jeet Kune Do. A blend of other arts, Kung Fu, Tai Chi and a few others, but on utilized the techniques from these arts that are truly effective. Jeet
Kune Do by itself, doesn't have any rules to follow, except, for one to be like water. In that, one must adapt to any environment. Biting someone's
ear off is quite okay, if it must be used. Jeet Kune Do teaches speed and power quite nicely, and avoids unnecessary movements, as they cost you time,
and can sometimes result in you holding you gut on the floor...or even death.
Some more advanced styles:
Muay Thai Boran
This technique, the true Muay Thai is used to kill people. This is no joke. This technique's foundation is based on speed and power, much like Jeet
Kune Do, but is a sure way to kill many. It's art is basically countering, and particular, striking your opponent before he even gets to extend his
arm fully. Muay Thai Kick Boxing, is a watered down version of this art, where all the deadly arts are mostly removed and changed dramatically. It can
only be learned in Thailand and is very, very rare. Many people in Thailand actually teach Muay Thai Kickboxing, and pass it off to people(especially
foreigners) as Muay Boran.
Another art used for killing. It's mostly used to immobilize your opponent, but can do some serious damage on the body. If you want to take it up a
notch to totally destroy another, you can.
Another killing art. It is believed to be the deadliest art known to man. The Japanese Samurai's created and used it. It's is a very, very effective
art. And like Muay Boran, it is very rare and hard to find someone who actually uses and teaches it. They may know it, but getting them to truly teach
it to you is another problem. This is where Judo comes from. Judo, like Muay Thai Kick boxing, is a watered down version of an original art, in this
If I had to learn any 1 art, it would be Jujitsu.
