    Coolest MA

    It's hard to define exactly what I mean by this. I definitely don't mean 'most effective' or 'most popular', though. Something more like 'most fun' or 'most interesting' for whatever reasons you may have

    One of my friends once told me that he had gone to a demo class for some martial art that was supposed to be about using the least amount of effort to fight or something like that. He asked the instructor what he would do if someone attacked him with a knife held over his head, like you often see defended against in other classes. The instructor wasn't sure because he said nobody ever actually does that, and asked him to try it on him to see what he would do. He ended up grabbing my friend's arm and pulling it down so that if he really was holding a knife, it would have stabbed him in the thigh. My friend was so impressed that he decided it was the MA for him. I just can't remember what it was called, and I haven't talked to him in a long time

    The "coolest" or "most fun" would be one you enjoy.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the fuck I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

          Your description sounds like Aikido.

          Really, an art performed by one of its true masters will look amazing. Unless you have no MA experience there aren't going to be many effective arts that have entertaining white belt classes.

                  That's definitely NOT aikido.

                    The master knew that your friend was to perform an overhead knife strike, a true measure of a martial artist is to see how he would respond to an unexpected move.

                      XMA by far the "coolest" martial art I mean, come on it's XTREME!

                      Seriously though I think capoeira(sp) is probably the coolest MA though I'm not sure I'll ever take it.

                          Unfortunatly I think it's Ninjitsu, but since it's not real that's OK everyone knows ninjitsu rules in fantasy land.

                          It doesn't say Ninjustsu here but his teachers other student becomes a Ninja...

                            Every one that works :D

                            Off the top of my head, in the comics he mentions or uses signature techniques from:

                            -Karate
                            -Japanese Juijitsu (including modern Judo stuff to get heavy attackers off him)
                            -Aikido
                            -Various forms of Kung Fu
                            -Ninjitsu (well, DUH!)
                            -Wrestling (I think)


                            Obviously, since he likes to take on rooms full of guys with guns, going to the ground sucks so he never stays there.

                              How about Zorro training to be a ninja? Then he could be Zorro the swashbuckling ninja
                              I think I better stop there lol
