Not to mention insulting us isn't very likely to garner an opinion on the matter.

Since you so badly want an opinion, here's mine, there is no Art or Style that is necessarily better suited for self defense over any other. The practitioner is ultimately what matters.

Fine, as said 1000 times before, there is NO BEST ART for anything, let it be self-defense or competition or simply to get fit.

If you wanna do Krav-Maga, do it. If you don't like it, then stop. If you HAD read the whole link I gave you, you would know that there is not best art.

We are tired of people not reading the rules before posting, and we are tired of people posting the "best art" or "this vs that" threads. They have all been answered soo many times before that we have become desensitized to people who ask them.

Further, if you are asking for opinions, everyone will naturally give their own art as the best for self-defense, since that's what they have experience in. So asking what everyone thinks is the best art is futile and a waste of time, unless you want to try 100 different arts and find out for yourself...

In short, the best art is Kung-pow chicken-do.
Have a nice day.

"#2: I can find nothing about this post that is against the rules"

http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/15737680/an/0/page/0#15737680

"Do not ask which Martial Art is the "best." There is no best art, it all depends on the instructor, student, and training methods. " (Joel M - Moderator)

"I've read in different spots around the boards, and people aren't that friendly to newbies."

If youve read any martial arts forum, you would know how common this question is. - why are you asking this question?

It's asked by people who are too lazy to read any of the old posts (which is what irritates us most of all)

Or by some kid who wants everyone to agree that his art is the most amazing art known to mankind -and therefore they are pretty amazing themselves. - This angle is irritating too - but can be put down to inexperience and enthusiasm - which everyone has experienced to some degree in their lives.

You have combined the 2 - youre too lazy to look, and you WANT to be told how good krav maga is - the inexperience is ok - the laziness is not. Try research - on the net - or maybe try a training centre nearby and see what its like.

"This isn't a debate, it is a request of opinion. And personelly, I can find no useful information to add to my current knowledge within this thread. "

Sounds sort of demanding to me - maybe its a sign that you should look outside the thread (in the old posts perhaps) or even take the advice of the people on the forums.

Ps - watch the attitude

My art is the best for evrything-from throwing chi balls to single handedly whooping an entire biker bar.

Why you ask?
Because I am the moderator and I have the last word.

Side note: Locking thread because these never go anywhere productive.
