    Your opinion on most devastating non weapon art form?

    What would be the first art YOU would study if you were going to work in s foreign extremely hostile environment? Most instantly devastating and so forth? Best for self defense and attack? All opinions are valuable?

    I would add Muay Thai to that list, but basically what goodlun said

    Goodlun pretty much has the right of it and Krijgsman is correct that Muay Thai is an excellent fighting art. However, it lacks a viable grappling component aside from the clinch. The arts Goodlun has recommended all (with the possible exception of Rising Pheonix kung fu, but I know precisely nadda about it) have at least a decent grappling component.

    My question is this: will you be carrying a firearm? If so, go for the best grappling instruction you can get. Striking is secondary to weapon control and retention.

    Phoenix Kung fu, cleverly disguised as Sambo.

    If I were going to work in a foreign hostile environment, where I was likely to be attacked, but not allowed to arm myself nor were to be provided effective security, I would train Monster.com.

    Perhaps your best bet is to find a different job and avoid the hostile environment all together. The problem with using martial arts is it takes years to become proficient, and it's not a guarantee of victory. Then there's the whole what if they're armed part of the equation.
