If you hang out in martial art circles I am sure you are familiar with people discussing which martial art is really the best martial art. You often see people popping in martial art forums asking about which style they should get involved with.
Why it’s true there are some martial art styles out there that is total bullshit for example. A Good example of Bullshido is the Yellow Bamboo cult.
Unfortunately there are thousands upon thousands of people who are led like cattle to a slaughter.
It’s like there are all these people out there that are starving to be led by someone. The scary part is that this stuff is going on even today. Who do you really blame? I suppose the blame falls on both parties. The person posing as a master and the person who is blindly following said person.
Avoid Being Manipulated!
While I believe the average person won’t ever get in a situation where they are susceptible to mind control. There are people out there who are.
Not that I am saying you are one of those people who could get effected by this nefarious situation. If you are wondering if things like Qi can make people levitate or shoot fireballs out of their finger tips or knock people out without touching them that simply isn’t based in reality.
Qi is real, but it’s not what most people associate it with. It’s not mystical or anything like that. I like to tell people it’s simply a way for a person to become more aware of themselves and their surrounding.
So which Martial Art System is the best On The Planet?
My friend all martial arts are good. It’s never the martial art that wins fights. It’s always the person who dedicated themselves to their training that wins fights. It’s the person that wants it more that wins.
With that said, do a martial art that you identify with. All of them are good. When ever you hear someone tell you that this style or that style is the best, just know that what they are saying isn’t a fact it’s just their opinion.
A wise man knows that all martial arts can be deadly…. Look for a teacher that you can connect with.
