    The one weaponless marital art I would like to become adept at is - spanking.

    MARTIAL? Oh.

    Nevermind.

    I've always wanted to box. My grandpa was a boxer and he lost his teeth and had to get dentures in his 20s after one especially dirty fight.
    I don't wanna!

    Ju-jitsu. I don't know more than half of those listed, but Ju-jitsu seemed pretty badass when I saw it on TV.

    Hells yes. Eskrima/Kali FTW. I'd learn that. Or Krav Maga which was also missing from the poll for some reason.

    Jeet Kune Do. I've done Tae Kwon Do and while it is a beautiful art it is not that practical in a street fight unless you are of a high level respectively. Jeet Kune Do is designed to be personalized to the individual, only down side is that it is taught by hardly anyone.

    "Daito-Ryu" Aiki-judo-jujutsu - its the common link between Judo, Aikido, and Jujutsu. Its mainly comprised of getting your opponents into a defenseless position as quickly as possible with the least amount of effort. It involves alot with submissions, throws, grapples and such, but also one-hit-takeouts, which I think is genius. Because if you think about it, there are a lot of ways to take somebody out of a fight really quick. Knock the air of out somebody the right way and they're gasping for the next 30 seconds or so (AKA: SOL irl)

    Because you can't spell "Slaughter" without "Laughter"
