    Any list that has ninjutsu and juko-kai (not to mention aikido and TKD) listed above BJJ and Kali is the result of a drug-addled mind.
    "I had once talked to Billy Conn, the boxer, about professionals versus amateurs - specifically street fighters. One had always heard rumors of champions being taken out by back-alley fighters. Conn was scornful. "Aw, it's like hitting a girl," he said. "They're nothing."

    when that tkd moron was talking about using tkd for self defense, while their hands were down to their asses with no guard up, was hilarious.

    This is what I believe a newbie would learn from Ultimate Top Ten Martial Arts...

    BJJ - An effective and proven combat style against resisting opponents regardless of size, style or age. Uses locks, joint manipulation, takedowns and ground grappling to subdue and submit the opponent.

    Kali - An effective and proven style that utilizes knives, sticks and other weapons to beat the crap out of it's opponent. Full contact fighting is involved with the weapons.

    Krav Maga - An effective style that is used by military and police.

    Aikido - An effective style against an opponent who runs at you, but does not strike.

    Taekwondo - A kicking sport from Korea that has two competitors jumping up and down with their hands at their waists attempting to kick each other.

    Judo-Kai - A great style to learn when you just want to stand still and have your opponents beat the crap out of you.

    Ninjutsu - You pretend to be an assassin and run around in black pj's! SWEET!

    Muay Thai - An effective and proven style/sport that allows you punch, kick, knee, and elbow your opponent till he drops in full contact fights.

    Karate - You hit your body with objects, break boards and use nunchucks

    Kung Fu - You do forms all day in.



    Muay Thai Rule #1 - Knock the mother out!

    Krav Maga is wicked sweet! I mean, they use knees FUCKING NONSTOP IN RESPONSE TO ANY GIVEN SITUATION so it has to be a badass, no-nonsense, effective form of self-defense, right?

    Yeah. And JKD isn't even on the list.
    I was under the impression that JKD was supposed to be a way of thinking rather than a style, and the whole point of it was to not be boxed into any style, pattern, or mold.

    Is that not correct? If it is correct, then why are you surprised that it didn't make the list[It's not a style!!]?

    Just pretend that JKD got subsumed under the Kung Fu banner. Does that make you feel better now?
