In no particular order:


Intelligence
Persistance/longevity
Dignity
Running
Neijia arts; Bagua Chang, Hsing-Yi, Tai Chi Chuan
Kara-te
Judo
Koryu

Any art which has qualities of intelligence, persistance among its students, longevity as an art, builds the dignity of its students, encourages/prefers running before ever striking, has a passion re: precise physical structure and positioning, and used by professional soldiers...

Those would be qualities of a top level art. Without such qualities, IMHV though perhaps effective, it is not an "art".
No matter how effective, if the instructor and their presentation of it, ie their particular art is not a "good match", for our beliefs and perceived needs... no matter how skilled, the student will not stay.

Kendo is a great sport, but only good for fighting other Kendoka.

I wouldn't be so sure. One of my kendoka friends used to spar pretty successfully against practitionners of western fencing... wink
They would often end up in an ai-uchi situation, but in all those cases my friend's "cuts" were definitely killing blows, while the virtual severity of his adversary's stabs was sometimes more disputable.

I must admit I don't know what level that fencer had reached in his own art though, and my own negligible experience as a swordsman (2 short years in iaido/kenjutsu) is way too small to make any judgement of value.
