Martial Art Styles

Styles / Techniques / Weapons / Forms / Resources

Every martial art style is different, which means not one style will fit everyone. In this world, every individual is unique with varying types of body and physical attributes - different belief systems will result in different training experiences. 

This philosophy resulted in the fact that the best martial art style does not exist in this world. There isn’t any style that can beat other forms. It is always up to the individual to find what type of martial arts they are good at, and which form of martial arts will suite them. 

For instance, take JKD (Jeet Kune Do), which was established by Bruce Lee. JKD is not exactly a style but rather a system of martial arts. In which you use whatever works for you. And learn to discard what does not fit. Hence you will learn to adapt to any situation using the best of what you know.

Bruce Lee
“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
Bruce Lee
