MMA is a cross disciplinary field that incorporates many different fighting styles and techniques. Many participants draw on their own individual specialist style to gain an advantage. The question for you, however, is which martial art do you want to master?

For anyone who wants to learn a martial art, there is a lot to know in regards to the many different styles. Of course there is the question of finding the best martial art, which is a question a lot of people ask. With so many martial arts styles to choose from, it can be very complicated to pick one to learn.

No matter what you may hear or what others have to say, it is quite impossible to name one style of martial arts as the ultimate best. Actually, there are several factors that come into play, which makes a statement about a style being the best impossible. Even though one style may beat another in a competition or a fight, doesn’t always mean that the winning style is the best.

Before deciding to rush out there or embark on our course to learn a martial art, there are several things that you should decide first. Martial arts are great to learn, no matter which style you decide on. A martial art can teach you self discipline, self defense, and several other traits that will help you no matter where you decide to go in life.

Self defense

All over the world, there are several martial arts schools and dojos that emphasize self defense a lot more than others. Our course places a particular emphasis on self-defense too. Schools that focus on kata, forms, or light sparring are less than likely to teach you what you need to protect yourself on the street. If you are looking for street self defense, then you’ll want a style that trains hard and doesn’t let up.

Fitness

Even though martial arts can improve your fitness level, it isn’t the goal behind a lot of the martial arts styles. Several styles, such as Tae Bo, are based purely on martial arts and don’t include a lot of physical fitness training. If you are looking for fitness as your main goal, then you should be looking at Jujitsu combined with cardio workouts.

Fighting ability

This will vary among the many different martial arts styles. Our course, however, will show the most prominent self-defense techniques so you can take advantage of fighting skills, teaching you everything you need to survive. Most martial arts styles are slow in theory, teaching you kata, movements, and forms. Martial arts and self defense are different topics but we like to cover both, which is why we teach you how to inflict the most amounts of damage in the least amount of time.

Competition

Competition based martial arts are all about winning trophies and showing the world your style of martial arts. The competition that you have chosen, will greatly impact your style of martial arts. You’ll need to decide if you will be fighting or showcasing display kata, light or heavy contact, or focusing on grappling or striking.

Before you decide on a martial arts style, you should always research the options and consider trying an online course before committing to gear. If you also want to attend a school find one that allows you to participate in a few free classes, or offer you discounts on your first few months. They will answer any questions that you have, and work with you to help you learn as much as you can.

Martial arts can be a very fun and exciting learning experience. There are hundreds of different martial arts styles out there including Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing, and Jiu-Jitsu. The more distinct styles, such as Kung Fu, Shootfighting, Kenpo, and Shaolin styles are a bit hard to harder to find in terms of local classes but again online training can do the trick.

Martial arts can change your outlook on life – all you have to do it devote yourself to learning all you can about the philosophy of your martial art. Get started today!

If you’re tired of typical training routines, find classes expensive or simply want to master Mixed Martial Arts at your own leisure I’d certainly recommend taking a look at our online tuition program. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    I agree with ur points but think choosing a fighting style is something that comes naturally as much as just an instant decision. Different things suit different ppl, for me it’s definitely judo, loving it! 🙂
