Whether its Combat, Self Defense, or Sport feel free to add or comment.

The Top Ten

1 Boxing Boxing Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring..

This is the best fighting style out there

Nothing like a good old fashioned punchup followed by a Texas style bar brawl. Bruce Lee can't bar brawl. - Bender0

Boxing is cool, like The Preps using this fightning styles in Bully SE (Video Game)

2 Gun-slinging

Nobody said it had to be martial arts. Never bring a knife to a gunfight.

That's not martial arts

Guns beat alll

3 Muay Thai

I have done all of these for at least 2 years of each one but muay Thai is the best one out of all of these

Beat every striking styles

Muay Thai is know as the art of eight limbs it uses all your body parts that makes it very usefull witch is good

The best 9 art of fighting is muaythai

4 Taekwondo

Taekwondo is the best fighting skill in the world

Best in a kicking

Yea! but has to be able to move every where quick, not just a forward attack. And has to be able to have super wrestling strength.


5 Systema

Although relatively un know, and for a long time classified to the elite of the Russian government, it is a brutally effective and efficient style made up of natural movements that every one dose every day... So in theory every one knows systema

6 Brawling

None can match a top brawler

7 Karate
8 Krav Maga

Krav Maga is so unique and also takes less time to learn it. All I'm saying is if you want a self defense that is efficient and taught to many soldiers and is effective for women and kids to do, this is the style for U.Saved my friends life twice!

New but effective in real life situations. Developed for counter attacks and power attacks. Also good for fast movements and killer touches.

Krav Maga is a mix of attack AND defense if you can do that you can fight people triple times your size with ease

Worlds best Israel technique Gods Gift

9 Jeet Kune Do

He took the best techniques of all fighting styles ( boxing, Kung Fu, wrestling, Tae Kwon Do etc... ) and combined them to make the most efficient fighting style. Should be ranked number one because all styles above can't beat Jeet Kune Do. Jeet Kune Do was made to beat all above styles.

I'm sorry but I seriously believe this to be the greatest fighting style to have ever been constructed.. thank you bruce lee haha

Bruce lee is the best fighter of all time he is the ultimate fighter I bet no one can beat him ever

Thats how Bruce Lee got the job done -

10 Wrestling Wrestling Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.

Nothing like over powering your guy to slam them pin to win.

The Contenders

11 Judo

This fighting style is more strong and affective to protect you from stranger

Judo can beat any of these styles since it takes one trip and you're done. It can even finish a wrestler or jiu jistu praticioner that easily simply because the trips can get even a person twise as big as you get off balance and then just throw him on the ground. Also it has submissions and has great ground game too

12 Close Quarters Defense (CQD)

It is used by U.S. Navy SEALs and Delta Force. Combines Krav Maga, ju jitsu, Wrestling(not fake wrestling, pankration), Muay Thai, etc. lethal - bamatide

13 Jiu Jitsu

Really did the difference on MMA. And still do when you are the weak.

It's a very powerful stance. Jeez gonna hurt

Jiu jitsu is REAL. Bruce lee was a martial arts ACTOR. its been proven over and over again that jiu jitsu<All - bearsarecool

14 Wing Chun

It is most effective and close combat martial art

15 Kick Boxing

Good system that combines the striking of western boxing with the power of kicks. The constant sparring prepares you for being hit with force. No forms or formality common with martial arts. It's boxing with four wheel drive.

16 Aikido
18 Kung Fu

Kung fu is the best much better than karate

My uncle is a kung- fu instructer and is teaching me and like others say it focuses on offense and the defense also I did krata got in a fight got my ass kicked after I learns kung-fu I kick almost anyone's ass that picks on disabled kids or my friends

Kung cu focuses on offense and defense and can take out any opponent in an instant

19 Shaolin
20 Ninjutsu
