Most useful in a street fight? Definitely wrestling or Brazilian Jiujitsu, wrestling more so IMO than BJJ.

It is really hard to tell because each has its pros and cons.

I myself have practice Shotokan Karate for 7-9 years and am going for 1. dan (first black belt) soon. I know that karate is an art that takes many years to master and I know that people who practice it well to full understanding will be able to take down anyone who attacks them in a single blow.

Sensei Richard Amos would be a man who can take down someone in one combination of attacks. He can take the decision when to take down the opponent.

Also there is one who taught me for 1 year called Andre, he is a guy you don't wanna mess with, he actually knocked out a judge at a competition for being in his way.


There is no best martial art, only many great martial arts. Each has it's quality. And all will work outside of the Dojo (Practicing area) with the right training

dunno, i always wanted to learn Muay Thai cause of the knees and stuff. I did freestyle martial arts for about 7 years but it was a mix of different styles.
#15
Muay Thai and BJJ together is a combination that will never fail really. Muay Thai for it's full use of all limbs, and it teaches you to take a hit. And BJJ as you will have to ground fight in a street fight.

For real life it's probably Kick-boxing. I used to do it in school, I regret stopping it.

I am gonna advice you, if you are going for Karate you must really think cause what you do in the beginning might not seem very important but it is. Kihon (Practice against invisble opponent) to Kata (combination of moves) to Kumite (Fighting) will do good training.

Laugh at what I said about invisible opponent if you must but it will make you an excellent martial artist as well as practicing Kumite and Kata beside it.
To become a great martial artist in Karate, you must be willing to practice Kihon, Kata and Kumite.

I've found the Shorinji Kempo is very good. Its very intuitive and latches into your instinct center quickly,a nd its easy to integrate other martial arts into it. Also the fact that they have braches in over 30 countries helps.

Ruas Vale Tudo, Jeet Kune Do or Krav Maga.

Anyone that tells you that a ground art is the most useful in a street fight knows very little about martial arts.
Demolition hands.... Got 'em!

I suppose the best answer would be whatever you're best at.
Jeet Kun Do is very free form, letting you adapt to what works best for you.
Tae Kwon Do is fun and I did it for a few years, loved it, but All of those high kicks are hard to practically use with enough force to do much with unless youve been studying it for a LONG time.

Shao-lin kung fu has it's good points, but a lot of people complain about it being too steeped in tradition.

In a street fight, honestly the grappling styles, american boxing, kick boxing, and muay Thai are probably some of the most practical.

Overall I will say don't learn a martial are purely so you can fight someone... thats a bonus if the situation comes to it, but honestly the best parts of martial arts is just seeing how far you can push yourself, get in shape, and learn things.

Have fun.

Knowing what to do on the ground is way more important in a street fight especially against someone stronger or bigger than you.

I had a buddy who has been boxing for years get into a bar fight with another guy who used to wrestle in high school, he took my friend down after 10 seconds and beat the living **** outta him.

If you don't want to get your ass kicked in a street fight, learn some wrestling or BJJ before you take up kickboxing or any other form of striking.

How can you tell that wrestling is better than Kick-boxing for real life only looking at two people?

Kick-boxing has a free form, and you can move easily. Take wrestling, now what will happen if your opponent is a really big strong guy. You won't be able to fight with him if you're a small and not that strong. But kick-boxing gives so many opportunities for weak ppl but who know the techniques well.
