Martial arts are great as spectator sports and a good way to get fit, but they really come into their own when they are used in self-defense – undoubtedly the ultimate result for many of them. This list looks at ten of the best martial arts for if you are especially interested in defending yourself against attackers.

10. Kickboxing

9. Karate

8. Aikido

7. Wing Chun

6. Jiu Jitsu

5. Jeet Kune Do

4. Western Boxing

 This hybrid mixes Jiu-jitsu’s standing throws and strikes with ground fighting, which emphasizes joint manipulation and overall control of the opponent, effectively ending a fight very quickly. The larger the attacker, the more easily he can be grappled off his feet, using his center of gravity against him.

2. Keysi Fighting Method

 It is Israel’s national martial art, developed largely by Imi Lichtenfeld,  for the purpose of street survival. It incorporates Western boxing punches, Karate kicks and knees, Greco-Roman wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu ground fighting, Jiu-jitsu throws and grappling, and most importantly, “bursting,” adapted from Wing Chun. This is a simultaneous defense/attack: instead of blocking an attack and then delivering a response, you block the attack and deliver a response at the same time, i. e., block with the left arm and push forward with the legs, striking with the right fist to the throat, all simultaneously.

Also stressed are attacks to vulnerable body parts: the eyes, throat, and groin.  Emphasis is also placed on disarming attackers with both knives and handguns, and turning these weapons on the attacker. It also exclusively trains hand-eye coordination, until defense becomes second nature and does not require thought. And a good Krav Maga instructor can teach all of this to anyone, regardless of athletic prowess.

 Confidence: the certainty in your ability to successfully achieve your goals and the resiliency to withstand the challenges along the way.

Everybody wants to feel confident some way or another. I find that confidence is one of the most sought after benefits of those seeking self-defense training. Whether it is for self-assurance that you could defend yourself, or just to be able to say you are confident in yourself; self-defense is a great way to boost your confidence level.

The fact that you have even thought about taking martial arts shows that you want to gain confidence in your life in some way or another and walking in is taking the first step to proving to yourself, and others, that you have confidence.  However, finding the path to confidence lies with more than just martial arts training. It takes a positive attitude and an open mind.  Martial arts training will help you, help yourself, gain more confidence. Whether it’s Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ), Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) or if you want your child to gain more confidence through our Children’s Programs; Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts is teaching the most realistic and practical self-defense classes in the North Shore and surrounding areas.
