Here comes CMAguy with the seriousness

It depends what you look for in a martial art.
there are many ways to define a martial art as "the best".

It also depends on whether or not youre just baiting an argument.

Jiu Jitsu is my favourite. *note how i didn't say it was the best*

There is no best martial art.

If anyone would like to watch the tea scene from the Jet Li film "Fearless", it gives a good description of the martial arts and why they're not about which is best.

Shitfuck I am almost certain I own or have owned the book that that excerpt is from. Small world. I struggled to master the (Hung Kuen?) techniques in that book, wishing I could have learned it first hand. The one I just couldn't get my head around was a snake form I think. It involved a kick to the ankle and the the technique I think you have there. I rationalised it at involving the kick and poke, followed by what you have only after a spin and capture? This might sound weird but, it involved a kick from the rear leg at a low angle along with a single finger spearhand followed by, I believe, your image.

Why would the one that isn't good at any of the four above categories be good at self defense? Because reasons?

what's the difference between ground fighting and grappling? you mean stand up grappling?

Its all grappling. I think that person might be confused.

Yeah he's a Hung Kuen grandmaster.
So many people keep dying that I want to learn from.
Like Zhu Baozhen died the other day and it's extremely depressing.
And Xu Gong Wei is dead too
and so are many amazing people. UUURGGRGGHHH
Kungfu is weird with naming things. Im sure it's probably like 10 different moves.

Krav Maga is not an actual martial art. It's just a fighting system for the Israeli military, and they teach different kind of fighting to each section of their military.
You don't want the bored foot grunts knowing how to kill each other when they're sparring, do you? No, you don't. They do some posture fighting and if all you've taught them is purely pragmatic kill moves, you'll end up with dead soldiers.
The truth is that most soldiers in the world who aren't supposed to do close-quarter combat aren't taught close-quarter combat.
They're taught a light zumbaish combination of kickboxing and grappling so they don't kill one another, and in every military in the world, there's an elite group which are indeed taught how to kill/defend themselves efficiently.
And most of those guys almost never teach their shit to the general population, because you don't want people who go out into Wal Mart to be programmed to break someone's trachea or rupture someone's spleen when the first minor annoyance that comes their way.

Krav Maga sucks compared to Sambo

Russia > Israel

With military conflict there's very little actual sparring. Usually the person who gets the drop on their enemy is the person who wins.
Besides, at that level things are reduced to the bare minimum so that they're practically the same thing.

It shows people just how elite the Russian elite soldiers are.

So if we scroll down and see related stories and look at Israel's botched operations. I guess we can imply how elite the Israeli elite soldiers are?

i have a brown belt in kenpo but am looking to learn a new martial art. what does /asp/ recommend for my next venture?

i like the fluidity of motion with stuff like aikido, but also find striking/sparring oddly relaxing and focusing for the mind.

i know very little about shaolin, kali, and wing chun. i'm considering tae kwon do, but am not sure if it will be too similar to what i've learned to be exciting.

I recommend learning something functional as opposed to "stand perfectly still while I hit 30 times"

>muay thai
