im sure that his comment about it being the strongest one was biased, because i bet everyone says that THEIR karate is the best or whatever. just go to wikipedia or something and look up different types of karate and see if one of the names pops out out you.

The most damaging striking style is probably Muay Thai. Clinch + knee strikes is the hardest blow a human being can generate. If you want some footage, go to YouTube and search for "Anderson Silva." Anderson Silva is the middleweight champion of the UFC and is, pound-for-pound, probably the most effective striker in MMA. His Muay Thai is ridiculous.

I did judo and it took me several years to get to a green belt

EDIT: it goes to black but I quit when I got more interested in the guitar

also I'm with dirk I don't know alot about karate but a knee strike (when performed correctly)
would easily feel like a car wreck and possibly kill them.

^ Judo and jiu jitsu are a lot different than many other striking styles, because it's about mastery rather than just knowing different moves. If you have good muscle memory, you can belt up in Tae Kwan Do very quickly, for example. It took my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor 13 years to get his black belt.

ok everybody i just found the name of the karate our friend was telling us about his a blackbelt and teaches "Kyokushin Karate" anyone heard of it? or is it worth driving an extra 30 mins to do shotokan
#14
You might be thinking of Shotokan karate. It's considered a "hard" style of karate, so it focuses more on strength than the other styles.

Also how fast you make it to black belt is totally up to you and your Sensei. Some instructors hand out black belts to anyone, but others actually make sure that you are responsible and skilled enough to be called a black belt.

Changes between clubs - For example, my friend took about 10 years to get his Black Belt in Karate where as it took me just over 3 in Taekwondo. I hated grading so quickly because I thought it was a joke how quickly I could get a black belt.

Belts really don't mean that much anymore.

u can misunderstand everything xD
#25
I was thinking they meant Kyokushin as well, it was always the hardest form of karate I knew of. I forgot what style of karate I learned but it was more a mix of Japanse and Chinese styles. However I got into Wing Chun later and did years of sparring and real combat training because I thought karate was too limiting and wasn't usable enough for real life situations.

Try to stay away from any classes that are focused on sport sparring or the ones that will give a black belt to just about anyone as long as they come in and spend money if you want to get something useful out it.

Started at 10th Kup. I totally agree with you, it is a joke and I wish it had been some other way but unfortunately the club I was at till uni graded us this way. On the plus side, now that I have the belt I have decided that if I am to grade again, it won't be for a good number of years at a time when I feel I'm ready for it rather than the federation.

i like tradisional martial arts more then new. but still i dont know why but i train TSG and thats a pretty new sport. but its kinda fun..

I like tradition too but you've always gotta be careful about the ones that claim, "We've uncovered the 6 secret strikes in the beginner's kata. Learn here!".

I don't know if you've ever been to it but there is a whole site dedicated to this kind of stuff...

I'm sorry, but you're studying karate for all the wrong reasons.
the one that has the reputation of dealing the most damage?

does anyone know how long it takes to get from white to black belt?


Why don't you just buy a gun and a black belt?

I'd prefer to train under someone that didn't just give out belts for the sake of making money.

It was the same in Northern Ireland. 3 hour drive for my first dan. Graded by the highest guys in Ireland.

I don't blame my instructors though. They quite often told people they couldn't grade. I blame the governing bodies for making it too easy/time between grades too short. You should not be allowed to grade until you have mastered everything from the prior grade.

I don't know much about jujitsu nor kyokushin so I can't help you here. And I never got into a real fight so can't tell how effective shotokan is either.

That's not at all what it looks like. "how long to get a black belt" "which form does most damage?"

It looks like you want bragging rights ASAP and you get bullied at school or something.

I take it you meant more than 100 miles if you live at the top of Sweden. Anyway, it was about 4 months between kup gradings and 8 months before my dan grading and that was with some delays. It's meant to be 3 and 6 respectively.

I would like to see at the bare minimum 6 months between kup and a year before dan - with each dan grading spacing increasing exponentially between (as it is)

This would take you a minimum of 5.5 years to get 1st dan if everything was scheduled perfectly.
