  • Most of these, when used alone, are just good for sparring, not actual fights...

    Taekwondo has little practical use--almost all kicks, which are slower than punches, easier to block, and really doesn't cover much else. Not very versatile.

    Karate doesn't teach enough grappling and improvisation.

    Judo... eh.

    Really, I would agree that the whole is much greater than the sum of the parts. You take Boxing or Karate plus kickboxing with some Krav Maga style weapon disarms, you should be able to handle about anything.

    I was looking at random youtube videos... there was a krav maga video on defending from a knife strike. The instructor's solution? Stab the enemy in the throat with your own knife!

  • No HEMA? Pfft.
    Of those MMA is the only one which hasn't suffered massivly from sportification, but its also suffering awefully from too many trainers who have no idea of technique or skill, and a general air of testosterone fuelled stupidity at the low levels. The typical nonsesne of lots of guys who want to proove they are 'hard' knocking hell out of eachother without any firstaiders on sight etc... but because of the serge in popularity in MMA circles those guys, and their gymes, get away with it.

    As someone who has absolutly no interest in WATCHING sports i've personally dabbled in all of them. Kendo and Kali/Eskrima were a particular laugh though... mostly because It's allways fun to switch to a european stance and watch the masters suddenly panic. :p
