Training in martial arts has been known to increase a person’s strength and them to defend themselves as the need arises. However, martial arts, like all other things, has a lot of variations and depending on what you hope to achieve with it can help you to pick the right sport for you to try out. If you want to fight, mixed martial arts, the Fu San Soo, or even the Krav Maga may be more suited to you. However, if you simply want to tone up and perhaps lose extra pounds, which one is the best? This answer also depends on you.

If you are not a very active person, but you have the ambition to try and become more active, then you should consider Tai Chi. It is a very slow martial art in comparison to others. Its main focus is on gently building your joint’s strength, improving your balance, and above all, stabilizing your muscles. With this type of martial arts, you may not see immediate results and it will do very little for weight loss, but it will help you reach your goal strength. From there, you can also take part in other martial arts that may increase your weight loss and fitness levels. This martial art is best suited for older people who are not necessarily looking to become quick on their feet or active in street fights.

If you are already an active person, you may lean more toward Capoeira, especially if you want a fun, intense workout that can help you increase your flexibility and more. It is a martial art that does not feel like you are learning a martial art. It is almost a dance style martial arts that shows you how to protect yourself. It is not a recommended activity for people who are suffering with a disability or those who have major health issues.

Anyone can take part in a martial arts class and most people will reach a level of fitness that is higher than what they started with. This is because with all martial arts, there is a degree of physical activity and mental devotion that come into play. You simply have to choose the one you want to learn how to practice. The rest, will be just increasing your skill and your own personal level of fitness.

People believe that the ones who are skilled in martial arts are excellent fighters. It is true that they do know a lot about fighting and protecting themselves. Often, weapons are needed because the body is the weapon that they use most effectively. The key is, some martial art skills are not designed to immediately put an end to a confrontation and not all of them are practical in a street fight situation. For instance, a grappling martial art, such as Jiu Jitsu. With these, your primary goal is to get your opponent onto the ground and finish the fight with them there. In a real world situation, this may not be the most effective. There could be multiple attackers on you or they could have weapons. So, this brings us to the question of which type is the best type of martial arts for combat fighting or protection?

Many people feel that the first strike is going to be the most effective in a street fight situation. Therefore, you need martial art training that allows you to move quickly and one that teaches you how to stay on your feet. This may include the Fu San Soo or the Krav Maga. Either of these techniques will help you win against any opponent regardless of their size by focusing your energy on their most vulnerable areas. Eyes, throat, and other sensitive areas are all fair game.

Another type of martial arts that may work well is Tae Kwon Do. It focuses on fast strikes and powerful kicks. These two things can help you get in the first and hopefully last blow to any opponent that may challenge you.

However, with all of that being said, the most effective way to handle a fight when you are confronted is to try and finish it quickly using whatever means necessary. That is, if you are not able to get away from the confrontation without a fight.

If you are looking for a combat fighting martial art that uses weapons or allows you to take an opponent’s weapon and use it effectively, there are options. You can learn the art of fencing, Gatka, or even Nunchaku Do. However, a lot of the weapons used in this style of fighting are considered illegal to use within a street fight and you will have to be prepared for the possible consequences of using them.

When you hear the term, “Martial Arts” you probably think of something along the lines of karate or Tae Kwon Do. There are a lot of variations and in loose terms, they are all considered martial arts. Martial arts are simply a codified system that is based on longstanding traditions. It is a way to practice self-defense, competition, and more. However, martial arts is not the most extreme sport around. The title of the most extreme sports ever is Mixed Martial Arts or MMA.

MMA, is in its basic form, a full contact. It uses striking and grappling techniques that can be done while you are standing or lying on the ground. This in essence makes it a combination of wrestling, boxing, and martial arts.

In the beginning, MMA combat and competitions were designed to figure out which type of martial arts was the best. Was karate something that would make you invincible or did you need to practice some other form of martial arts? In a very short time though, the people who were trying to win would use a mixture of all types of martial arts. This lead to MMA fighting to be very brutal, because there were very few rules against certain things.

The term MMA was not well known until the early 1990s. However, now there is a long list of fighters who enjoy it and fans who love watching it. The new rules of it, ensure that there is some safety in it for those who fight it out using various techniques. There are PPV events and it ranks consistently alongside of boxing and wrestling matches that are also on PPV.

With the new rules, which were designed to protect fighters, there is a weight limit that ensures someone who is not very large will not be paired with a giant. It also included the use of gloves to cut down on cuts that a fighter may receive as well as protect the fist of the person striking out. There are also time limits so that competitors can have the option to preserve their strength for later on in the match.

To win, you goal is simple. You have to throw legitimate punches and follow the rules well enough that your opponent surrenders. However, there are times when the referee can call a match, judges can say it has been enough, and a fight doctor can say that the match should not continue.
