and how to pick the one best for you...


If you ever wanted to get into the martial arts, there's no better time then the present. But with so many different types, how can you pick the one that's right for you and your needs?

In this article we will define 5 of the most popular martial arts and then give you some questions that will help you decided which one is perfect for you!

Boxing- a combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu - a self-defense martial art and combat sport based on grappling, ground fighting and submission holds - it is similar to wrestling.

Karate - predominantly a striking art using punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes, & open-hand techniques such as knife-hands, spear-hands, and palm-heel strikes.

Kickboxing - a form of full-contact karate; it is considered to be a hybrid or mixed combat sport, as it combines elements from several other sports and martial arts.

Taekwondo - a martial art that attacks or defends with hands and feet anytime and the purpose of physical training is important. It also has great significance in fostering the right mind through mental armament.


Which one is for you?

Ask yourself these 3 questions...

1) What’s Your Primary Objective? Fitness, self defense, mindfulness, sport & competition... Your goal for joining a martial art is an important first step in picking the correct one. If it’s flexibility, power & agility that you wish to achieve, go for something like Taekwondo or Karate. For a good cardiovascular workout, Kickboxing is a good choice. If it's formal combat training you’re interested in, Boxing & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu would be the best arts to choose.

2) How Much Time Can You Devote? How much time can you actually spare for the physical toll that the martial arts can take? When answering this question make sure to be realistic. Also, Learning a martial art style and mastering their techniques requires time, a lot of patience and a ton of perseverance. Are you willing to make all this investment?

3) Is it Suitable for Your Personality? If you’re a physically hyperactive person going for an aggressive style would give you just the right platform to vent all that excess energy constructively (Tae Kwon Do or Karate). On the other hand, if your personality is calm and patient a contemplative and deliberate style might be better (Tai Chi or Akido).


In asking these questions, you will be able to choose the correct martial art for you. Different from soccer, basketball, or any other competitive sport, the martial arts can be for anyone and everyone. No matter age, athletic ability, fitness level, or knowledge, there is a martial art for you. One that matches your personality and can help elevate your mind, body and soul, so you can start to live your best life!
