Which martial art is most useful

Post by Das Troll » Thu Jun 27, 2019 12:53 am

Ahh this old argument will often spark a lot of debate. For most martial artists, their martial art of choice is like their religion and damn you if you take a shit on it. Over the years I have taken a lot of martial arts and sparred/fought with people who did the most mundane like karate, to the more esoteric capoeira. This next post is my opinion from over 17 years of martial arts.

1. Karate

Karate is hit or miss around the world. The closer it gets to home (Okinawa) the better it tends to be. When karate became popular in the 60s and 70s, it hit Hollywood hard and I personally think that's where it started to go down hill. Gimmicky shit like board and brick breaking would wow the normies into coming into their dojos for training. Most of it is crap belt factories and kata (forms) that fall apart under the least bit of pressure. If a dojo promises you a black belt in x amount of time, walk out the door. Also if they don't spar, then it's not worth even listening to their sales pitch.

2. Kung fu

Image

There are as many forms of kung fu as there are animals to name them after. Kung fu is largely a joke in modern day martial arts. It's dance like structure has tons of weak points and they almost never use their martial art in sparing with an unwilling partner. Most times kung fu practitioners will drone on about how their art is too dangerous to use on people and how their Dim Mak could strike you dead yadayada. This is all horse shit. Want to see kung fu masters in a match for real, go on youtube and look for a guy named xu xiaodong. He's made a name for himself by challenging so called masters to fights.

3. Brazilian Jujitsu

Image

One of my personal favorites to be honest. Not to be confused with a more kata based Japanese jujitsu, BJJ was made popular by the Gracie family in the beginning days of the UFC. It pretty much dominated for quite a few years until people realized that taking a striker off his feet is like taking a fish out of water. BJJ relies on twists, chokes, joint locks, and some throws. Want to get down and sweaty with another guy? BJJ is the martial art for you. You can choke the life out of a rapist when he goes down to unzip his pants if you slap on a triangle choke. It's one major downside is you generally have to go to the ground to do it and that leaves you open to getting stomped out by other people or rolled around in whatever debris is on the ground.

4. Judo

Image

Ahh the only martial art where you hit someone with a planet. Judo is the Japanese art of throws which I believe originated as a sport version of jujitsu. Samurai would toss you to the ground and then stab you. Judo evolved from that. This martial art can be generally useless or totally brutal depending on your thought process. If you're good enough to do a throw without a gi to grab onto, everywhere is a weapon. Street corners, chairs, bar edges, table corners, ect ect. You can easily bash someones brains out on the concrete if you slam them down on it. I always loved judo for that brief moment when you're in the air and you don't know which way is up. Take it or leave it.

5. Muay Thai

Image

My favorite and first love. The art of the 8 limbs. This nasty bit of martial arts is spar heavy and functional even in a street fight. There are very few "katas" if any in MT. Punching, kicking, kneeing, elbowing, and sometimes headbutts are all fair game in MT. In my opinion it teaches you functional combat in the shortest amount of time and it teaches you that you don't need your opponents permission to do a move like many martial arts (looking at you Aikido). 2 or 3 years of MT will turn you into a monster that's not to be messed with. While other martial arts are dancing about trying to look dangerous and hoping no one calls them on their bullshit, MT is busy busting heads and breaking shins. If you have the endurance and will to take this nasty bit of martial arts, then you will be turned into a beast.

6. Capoeira

Image

This ridiculous bit of theater can actually be quite dangerous. All that jumping and spinning around is a lot of wasted movement and it's very tiring. The thing is once you get someone who's actually good at it, they will be shredded and likely won't get tired. The spinning kicks will often use centrifugal force that will turn a kick into a hammer. Many of their strikes are kicks and many of them are useless to be honest, but once you see it in front of you and see it in action you often get so confused you freeze up. Right about then is when they take your head off. Easy way to get past this I found is to just rush them and not let them wind up. Take it or leave it.

I've never taken nor matched up with Krav Maga. My general opinion of it is not favorable though. It pretty much falls into the "overly complicated, overly flashy camp". Some of the moves look like they would only work in concept and that's the real problem with martial arts. People do things that they ASSUME will work and when it comes time to do it, it falls apart because 15 things need to be exactly right before the technique will work.

that.

the kikes like to steal other peoples shit, change it around a little bit, and happily declare 'look-ie here what we invented!'...and the only reason for its popularity is the perpetual jew media presence to make sure everyone knows about it, giving the false impression of 'its popular...it must be good.'

also. the correct answer for 'which martial art is most useful' is D. None of the above

every...as in every...un-sanctioned/refereed fight ive ever seen always devolved into monkey-like limb-swinging or some sort of pornographic body-locks rolling around on the ground.
