...that is useful for me specifically. I'm not here to incite debate/arguments, just need help.
I know that there is no 'best' martial art' and that a martial art is as good as the teacher and the student. Assuming this is fulfilled, which should I learn? I want to learn to be better able to defend myself if the need should arise. I'm considering the following:
Pros: I feel Judo may be most useful since slamming one's assailant onto a hard ground will incapacitate them quite well
Cons: Does it include striking practise and grappling?
2) Jeet Kune Do: does it incorporate throws + grappling, like in Judo?
3) Filipino martial arts/kali etc
4) BJJ: since focus is on the ground, what happens if you must defend against a second assailant?
5) Krav Maga: does it incorporate grappling and throws?
6) Mauy Thai
7) Wing Chun
9) Target Focus Training
I do not know much about martial arts. Can you objectively discuss the pros and cons of each and advise me which I should consider? I want to choose one and stick to it, and not jump from one to another all the time.
