Top Ten Deadliest Martial Arts

The Top Ten

1 Krav Maga

Most simple but yet effective martial art for self defense, out on the streets (no rules, no honor, no referee), so Krav maga was developed in Israel to defend themselves from the Nazis after WWII, now it is effective against terrorists.

Krav maga is easily the best Martial Art. Its Tactics are easy to learn and yet unpredictable to your opponents.

Judo is for children if we're talking about pain. If you know Krav Maga you know how to kill in less time possible.

Navy seals use Krav Maga for killing therefor I think it’s one of the best because navy seals prefer Krav Maga for killing the enemy.

2 Rough and Tumble

You can gouge someones eye out and throw hard punches

3 Silat

Traditional silat was developed over the centuries with the aim of killing your enemy, as fast and efficient as possible. Since killing another person is outlawed today, silat has evolved into a self-defense mechanism rather than an art of killing. Therefore, it has lost some of its DNA. The current silat moves are more focused on disabling your opponent. The only way to learn the traditional silat is to go deep into the forests of Southeast Asia and learn through their master. It's not just a martial art, it is also a spiritual way of life. If the traditional silat is still legal today, it would easily beat Krav Maga. No questions about that.
