So yesterday we talked a little bit about what the best style of martial arts is. Today I just wanted to add a little to that.

Every style has techniques that they do better than other styles. They also got techniques that other styles do better at.

Some styles rely more on close range combat techniques.

Other styles rely on long range attacks and defences.

Certain styles favour striking with hands, forearms, and elbows while other styles prefer the use of legs and feet.

Than there is styles that have very little striking and prefer joint manupulations.

Some styles like to do stand up and stay on their feet while some styles like to go to the ground and grapple.

Then we have styles that use weapons as the core to their training.

Some styles such as my school teaches traditional and sports martial arts but add various elements of other styles.

These are all okay. There is no better or worst. It’s whatever you like.
