Well here is part 3 of which style is the best.
As you can see by now my opinion is that there is no best style.
You know know by reading the last two blog posts that each style offer many different aspects and techniques.
You also know by now that the style you are practicing is the best style for you as you most likely will never engage in hand to hand combat nowadays.
I would like you to consider the following as parts to the best style for you.
- A style that offers physical fitness and conditioning
- A style that offers real self defense that is simple to learn and practice
- A style that offers many different challenges along the way
- A style that takes a minimum of three years or more to earn a black belt
- A style that teaches the rings you are interested in
- A style that creates a friendly environment for their students and instructors
- A style that works on character development
- A style that teaches flexibility of both the mind and body
- A style that offers unbiased testing for ranks and has a set standard
- A style that is fun to learn
- A style that promotes respect and self discipline
- A style where everyone works together to help each other improve
- A style that teaches many elements of martial arts and not just one or two aspects
And I could go on and on for quite some time but I think you get what I am talking about.
Most Martial Arts are good. Just find one you enjoy and commit wholeheartedly
