    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.

              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.

                        What?
                        That looks suspiciously like plagiarism. File a DCMA claim.

                          1. Ninjitsu
                          2. Wing Chun
                          3. Aikido
                          4. Systema
                          5. Krav Maga

                          Anything to do with Frank Dux, George Dillman, Tom Cameron, Sin Kwang The, Ashida Kim, and the most recent (also most delusional) Grandmaster Thomas Daw.
                          Conversely, Sumo is the real, those guys may be (morbidly) obese, but they are strong as hell and go at it hard, so it gets aliveness points like Kyokushin.

                            That thread was an awesome read!!!

                            By they way, I don't think it's fair to say most American TaiJi sucks and you must train in china to get proper TaiJi/gongfu training. Maybe to a certain extent is true, sometimes forms seem more "authentic/traditional" here in china. However I often see them do the same no resistance training I used to see in America.

                            There is exceptions everywhere and I actually enjoy being wrong about martial art styles and it's training. I love it when my mind is blown and I see traditional CMA doing live training/sparring. I've heard from a friend that TaiJi and BaJiQuan guys in my city do free sparring. If I get a chance I'll check it out and post a vid.

                            also:
                            animal Kung fu
                            krav maga
                            Kung fu San Soo (because of the practitioners arrogance and no sparring)
                            scars (repackaged San Soo)
                            RBSD

                              I'm surprised no one has mentioned yellow bamboo yet, on a phone so I can't link to the video when the yellow bamboo guy gets levelled on beach outside of Perth

                              Also this is an overdone topic, would be more interesting if it was "what are effective, yet overhyped, martial arts"
