    Default The best striking style?

    What's the best striking art, not only in fight sports but for self defense also?

    muay thai, kyokushin karate, ryu te

    kyokushin and ryu te not only have similar striking to muay thai but also have self defense/standing grappling and locks, which can work well in the street

    I'll join the broken record chorus (with whom I agree) and vote muay thai

    If we are talking pure striking like kickboxing, tae kwon do, muay thai, etc.... then it is definitely muay thai. Muay Thai can be used in any stand up situation. Close, far, bending down, etc.


    If you add martial arts with combinations of striking and grappling, then muay thai is right up there with them... it really depends on what situation you find yourself in.

    most of the best strikers in the world have background in muy thai. anderson silva is the prime example...arguably the most dangerous striker in the sport and the form he uses? muy thai.
