    Ranking the most ineffective martial arts

    So I came across these two lists...
    http://fightstate.com/top-5-worst-martial-arts/
    https://www.google.com/amp/www.maxim...e-martial-arts

    How would your rankings look?

    Heres mine:

    wing chun
    aikido
    any TMA that teaches theory with little or no sparring
    sumo (obesity)
    Ninjutsu
    Taijiquan
    Drunken Gongfu

    Pretty sure the first link is a ripoff of a bunch of holy moment posts with all of the humor and Dan Severn rape fics taken out.

    Sumo is a technical grappling discipline where they do compete.
    Like almost all professional combat sports, there is sometimes some rigging to the matches.
    But, usually Sumo is entertaining to watch.
    Being able to win by being able to throw own's opponent out of the competition area has some merits, in my opinion.

    There's some legit Taijiquan....... just like most kung-fu, it's dog **** in America for the most part.

    Sumo is legit, anything that goes full contact and throws is legit. There are few sumo wrestlers that have been absolutely beastly, fast and huge.


    Worst *martial arts

    1.Dillman Karate

    2. Aikido

    3. Systema

    4. Krav/RBSD

    5. Non-Sanda like kung-fu(Wing Chun,drunken, blah blah blah)


    So you'll notice my top three all pretend they are masters of the force.
    The bottom 2 just have **** overall operating theory, but are better than nothing. They also may have a good school sprinkled in here and there where they are part of a good overall curriculum.

    The Aikido people who imply they have magic powers or psychic powers lose me as well.
    The Aikido people who treat the practice like a study in physics, levers, anatomy, and motion, and who are honest about the practice's combat suitability as a stand alone practice don't concern me that much.
    I have to always express some admiration for the falling skills some combination Aikidoka-Judoka's are able demonstrate and/or use in their practice.

    I know a guy who does exactly that on occasion.

    I always wish someone would try to rush the door when he's working an event.
