After intelligence and situational awareness there are many good fighting styles. Krav Maga, jiu-jitsu, Russian sambo, muay thai, etc. I have learned much from aikido & judo as well as good old American wrestling. There is no one style that is completely superior to another. It is however okay to learn one style, then start learning another, then another. Mixed martial arts provides a lot of different tools for a lot of different situations.

Pick one good striking martial art and one good grappling/ground fighting martial art.

Muay Thai/Boran and jiu-jitsu pair really well together, and Muay Thai also looks cool when you're fighting.

LOL, "Dim-Mak".

Oh sorry, I see you area youth member.

I think Dim Mak is a sort of a fantasy no? "Death Touch"

Jean Claude Van Damme - Bloodsport.

I believe in the Chi having done a fair amount of Tai Chi, but I don't think you can just blow someone's Chi out like a candle and kill them.

Yes, a strike to the solar plexus or liver or kidney can disable you for a time as most people already know. Hit hard enough, of course can kill, but that departs from the term "touch"

But the concept of a light touch that kills? I am a doubter.

Although I could be wrong.

I would vote that kung fu is the most effective. and brutal. I took it for a while when I was younger and quit because it was too brutal for me to want to pollute my mind with. Pretty much every move results in death and dismemberment.

Biased, but boxing.

Applicable anywhere and even if you don't throw a punch, the movement and conditioning you will have will serve you with a weapon in hand etc.

most traditional martial arts ( karate, kung fu, aikido, etc) arent very good because they dont do enough pressure testing of techniques. There are also a lot of techniques that are showy but not useful in a fight. You spend a lot of time learning complex sequences and not enough time fighting. If you goal is to master cool looking techniques that is fine, but if you want to learn to fight then a mix of kickboxing (striking), judo(takedowns) and BJJ (groundfighting) is the best. The problem is each art is a full time pursuit. Many MMA gyms take a little from each of the arts to give you pressure tested techniques that work well against a broad range of fighters.

Krav maga is a mixed martial art focused on self defense and not fighting.

The best and most successful MMA fighters all started with wrestling
Then they all learned striking and are generally very good at it
The ideal student would master wrestling, BJJ, Muay Thai, and boxing
This is what the best and greatest did and are doing
You could always take a lesser path
If you have to pick one, BJJ but be prepared to get wrestle - [email protected]#$ed
