    I'm sure if you did Tai-chi for long enough, your body would know what to do should you ever need to defend yourself. Granted, other martial arts often use a learned response, but they're often less meditative.


    If it had to be awesome, then it would be Kali/Eskrima ala Bourne Identity.

    But anything involving body manipulation makes me warm and fuzzy inside.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Does laser-vision count as a weapon?

    Batman was rocking some sweet Keysi Fighting Method in The Dark Knight. Excellent chest punches, arm breaks, and disarms.

    I have no idea. I would be incapable of telling the difference between any of the choices other than boxing and wrestling.

    Out of the written list, I would take Judo. But I chose the "other" option for this: Zui Quan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Ease and practicality be damned, I just love this too much.

    Other: Mixed Martial arts (Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Shooto etc). Been training MMA for about a year, other full contact martial arts before that.

    It'd have to be boxing. Not sure about the others being actually useful as I've never seen anyone pull one of those moves actually in a fight and half of them are semi weapon based anyway.

    For concept it'd have to be Jung Fang Kung Fu (aka Jeet Kune Do) but I'm also unsure as to the usability of this.

    (Btw, you know that ninjitsu is basically b&e right? There is no martial art called that. A geeky point, I'll admit that, but still.)

    Oh and most preferable of all... I wouldn't learn any of them. I've yet to meet a martial artist who isn't messed up in the head. Esp the krav maga and muay thai lot. Bloomin nutters!
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
