    I love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and would say its the best for the ground. IMO best standup is Muay Thai Kickboxing. The 2 combined are lethal.

    Best martial art for what, street fighting, mma, point karate, wellness, etc?

  12. if all the grand masters of every martial art were in a
    cage match ..what style would come out on top? like i said before
    i think brazilian jiujitsu would easily take on most of the different styles,
    because once a bjj fighter gets you on the ground its done....muay thai and jeet kun do
    would be pretty crazy too

  13. Hapkido

  14. Vale Tudo: a mix of BJJ and kickboxing

  15. I think it is impossible to pick one art over all the others. Each has strengths and weaknesses.

  16. hapkido seems like its way to defensive....but i knew a kid who
    took it and he could tear some **** up

  17. Vale tudo.. they did put all the martial arts masters in a cage and royce gracie beat em all

    Those were martial arts masters? lol Vale Tudo isn't really an art per se, so I'd side with mma. It incorporates aspects from Judo, wrestling, Muay Thai, Sambo, bjj, etc. The experience, skill and abilities of a practioner are far more important than the art in which they train. Of course the ultimate martial art is Krav Maga, just ask any practioner and they'll set you straight.

  19. gracie family is incredible

  20. I have a MMA gym near me, they teach Kali, Muay Thai, and Gracie BJJ. I'm thinking about taking up a few classes

  21. I would have to say tai chi chuan- dead serious, wow is all I have to say about it if the person knows what they are doing. brazilian jiujitsu is awesome for one on one competition, but it is terrible on the streets, just think of a situation with multiple attackers, tie someone up in a grappling lock and get a bar stool smashed into the back of your head...engagement is not a good thing in a steet fight

  22. Combat Ki.

    Able to withstand kicks the groin and blows to the throat and all deadly points on human body.

    Real cool and deadly.

    Forgive me, but I'm not signing up in a martial arts class where we take turns kickin' each others nutz! LOL.

    I'd have a hard time naming one because certain ma's will work better for certain people. I.E. I can box and grapple but my legs are so inflexible I could never be a great with my legs. But, I'll give a list of things I"d like to take to give myself a well-rounded set of fighting skills.

    Stand up:
    ---------
    Western Boxing & Muay Thai mix

    Grappling:
    ---------
    Wrestling & BJJ mix

    A combination of those four, IMHO, would make most people really capable fighters.

  24. Ouch! Wonder if any Combat Ki experts r impotent?:P

    Faustus

    A near perfect mix, IMO, and the integration of certain elements those pretty much defines modern MMA. Whatever you train though, needs to be trained live and with sparring, rather than just drills and patterns.

    You look at any high level MMA fighter, and those are the skills they utilize, alot of times they will be at an elite level in 1 of the 4 disciplines, but skilled in the other 3.

    think yoshida, chuck lidell, fedor, crop cop, nog, bj penn

    IMO Chuck's ground game is sub-par. He's very good at keeping the fight from going to the ground, but not good at grappling.
