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.
Martial arts are the systematic codes and traditions of combat practices. They are practiced for self-defense, competition, entertainment, physical fitness, and mental and spiritual development.
The term martial art has become primarily associated with the fighting practices of Eastern Asia. However, history suggests that an earlier version of martial arts was initially used as the combat systems in Europe.
The term martial derived from Latin, which means “arts of Mars.” Mars, being the Roman god of war. Throughout the years and the changing of the civilization’s course, martial arts have had several changes and have spawned several categories.
