Hypothetical question:

Tomorrow the world as we know it ends. The end could be from a nuclear war, an incurable disease, a massive meteor hitting the earth etc.


End result is the governments of the world collapse, and all society breaks down. Chaos and violence rule the streets. There is no police or organized military presence. It’s every man for himself and his family. You are one of the survivors who must try to stay alive in this hostile new world.

Given the above situation:

Which martial art and/or weapon system (non-firearm) do you think would best keep you alive and able to defend your family?

Can we just go back to asking which art do you think is best?

We are going to get the question anyway. At least by allowing it staight forward, we can avoid the outlandish scenarios!

Kenjutsu and Iajutsu, all those samurai couldn't have been that far off. It was the way for years and the most feared for years. Everyone looked for a way to counter the sword which was the greatest weapon of that era. That and archery or Kyudo. Got to be able to kill from a distance.

That work for you Doc?

my money is on Reiki being the last one standing. she'd be too hard to cannibalize with her 'iron shirt' training.

but the best martial art post-armegeddon would be the Art of the US Army Rangers...those guys are trained to survive anywhere.
