    Thumbs up

    Whatever martial art that uses that technique which ruptures organs by yelling.


    Nobody see's it coming. You can't block it, unless you're covered in egg cartons or something. Sound travels faster than any kick or jab a human could throw. It would also be practical for many things other than asskicking.

    I learn karate and some mixed martial arts. Karate's my favourite, by far. I like to use my legs more than boxing allows, and I, um, pretty much suck at wrestling. I enjoyed ju jitsu, though. I was mainly excited about ju jitsu because Sherlock Holmes did it, no other particular reason. I'd like to give a shot at kung fu.

    Karate helps me power out all that pent up energy. I broke a guy's hand once while sparring. I don't think he'll ever heard the end of that particular accident.

    Judo's great for totally getting the upper hand in a melee.

    Why?
    I haven't tried them all, so I'm unqualified to answer the question.

    Aikido was good, but I thought it wasn't physical enough. There's a kind of primal energy you get out of doing contact stuff, that you don't get from pins and movements and redirecting energy.

    I also don't think I would choose Taekwondo, because it seems more like a sport than a martial art. But I've never tried it.

    Krav Maga. Then, Kung Fu.

    IMO, Kali (a Filipino martial art) is the best. Although not a weaponless art, but you can always find an improvised weapon. This is particularly important, because, in an actual combat, you are likely to be outnumbered.

    Oh those guys are unbelivable. The hand eye co-ordination required for that kind of art is increadible. Sod the matrix, these guys are super agents! Empty your clip and all you get is your ass kicked! (Well or stabbed or whacked with a large stick...)
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I picked Judo - okay, I'm being totally biased here; I'm a Judoka.
    However, Ninjitsu would be my choice if I were totally unbiased.
    It's lethal and precise.
    Not to mention illegal to practice in my country.
