Yes it is thai kick boxing though. You use your feet, leg, knees, fists, and elbows. In standard kick boxing I don't think you can use your knees, and elbows. It is extremely dangerous, imagine a knee, or elbow to your face.

'Krav Maga (Hebrew for “contact combat”) is the official self-defense and fighting system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It has been recognized as the most efficient self-defense system for real-life situations, emphasizing practical defenses against real attacks. It has been taught to hundreds of U.S. law enforcement agencies and thousands of civilians.

Krav Maga is a simple, effective self-defense system emphasizing instinctive movements, practical techniques and realistic training scenarios. Plus, because it’s based on a person’s natural reactions, it is easy to learn. You can become proficient in months rather than years.'

Its pretty amazing, but the videos on the site make it look stupid.

This is poll is also biased. More people are going to hear about kickboxing and karate because more places in my area teach those martial arts. It is probably, though only arguably, easier to pick up.

I have views on certain martial arts. Like I do not classify karate over taekwondo because it's more offence than defence. This is only my opinion though.

Most of the famous martial artists practice Kung Fu, that has to say something.

One of my friends held the view that if two people were fighting, one practice TKD and the other kickboxing, if it lasted long the TKD one would win. No idea if it's true but at the time it was an interesting thought.

you're correct there.

Wing Chun was invented by a woman in the 19th century, who due to her lack of physical strength compared to most men, developed a technique which involved grappling and various other methods of fighting which rely on skill rather than strength.

Yeh he is amazing

But to be honest there arent many great tennis players around in this present era, so there no credible challengers anymore

Hewitt went vastly downhill since his peak a couple of years back

Hey, I was just wondering which is the best form of martial arts that protects you the best?
Well, I reckon that the various ninjitsu are the best, simple because of the wide range of techniques available.
