There are hundreds of martial arts in existence, and I am sure more will follow. So what is the best martial art? For us, the best martial art is the one that suits your needs. What do you want to get out of your training? Is it competition? Self defense? Just social? Fitness? Make sure you get what you want from your classes. The art is not so important as the instructor. A good instructor will be able to adapt their art to suit your needs. But, as with many things in life, you will only get out of any martial art what yo put. Give 100% to the art, and you will get a lot in return, no matter the art.
