    Default Best all around fighting style/martial art?

    It seems that Darkfall calls to those who enjoy the brutal side of things. I assume gamers who enjoy hardcore PVP might have the same view for the real world and I wonder what you consider to be the best all around fighting style.
    In real life.
    ...or am I disillusioned here and everybody is fat and pasty?

    Lots of martial artists around here, but personally I find .45acp works the best.

    It's such an amazing fighting style that Bruce Lee asked a master of it to be in his movie, Enter the Dragon. The master asked 'what would happen in this movie?' And Bruce Lee said 'We would have an epic battle, at the end of it I would win'.

    The master looked him dead in the eye and said 'that would never happen'.

    So he didn't do the movie.

    I have decided that as an average person it is much more wise to put your faith into a pair of steel toed boots and a concealed weapons permit than any martial art.

    I would have to go with LINE as the most badass martial art though. For those who don't know, it was an older version of the martial art that they teach U.S. Marines. They changed because it was only good for killing people and they needed at least some of the people that the marines fought against alive.

    I enjoy the brutal side of things, I guess... I've been fighting for my whole life, just as sparring, but been in a few real fights. Martial artists shouldn't be openly brutal, though. They should only use it when they need to. It's just for self-defense and sport. For an all-around best style, I'd say Tae Kwon Do. Especially general sparring, grappling, and hapkido. You can't really fight unless you actually practice those.

    Kicking ftw!

    Hmm... I think I'm going to wait on this one. Fuck it. I don't believe thee is a best martial art. Only a better fighter or one who understands and adapts. I'm going to refrain from epeening and let some other guys do that.
    It is usually futile to try to talk facts and analysis to people who are enjoying a sense of moral superiority in their ignorance.

    I took Tae Kwon Doe and believe me, a pair of head stomping boots and a knife works much better.

    From a McDojo, I assume? Did you do grappling, sparring, and hapkido? Did they teach you how to go from deflecting a knife to an armbar? What about how to knock someone out in four seconds, without even hitting them? I guess not.
