Hi, I appreciate you doing this test, and my tendency to regard Kempo as the right art for me was strengthened.

I got around 86% on Kempo.

You must be psychic. I was leaning to Kenpo, the main reason initially was that it's a mile from my home. I have also done alot of online research, alot of it led to Ed Parker and I like what I've found. Another local Do-jo deals in Goju-Kia. I researched that a little and I didn't really like the animal noises that these guy's were doing, maybe a little to ancient for me. Looks like I'll be checking out the Kenpo Do-jo, they offering a free introductory lesson/visit. I did lie about my age though, I'm 54 yrs young :)

If I could develop just 2 qualities to master level it would be the ability to see my opponents seem like they are moving in slow motion in a real fight, so therefor I would not freeze, go into a reptilian brain defensive mode, and get killed. (The toughest guy in my neighborhood growing up once took on 3 crazed bikers barehanded and knocked all 3 out in a flash and said later" They all seemed to be moving in slow motion. And despite some martial training, he was just a street fighter! He is Michael Ratner from Brighton Beach.

Second thing I would want is to "know" I can take my opponent out in one shot. I have 25+ years in the arts and I will tell you why: If you have nothing else but devastating power, you will be relaxed beyond what 99.9% of martial artists, and that means that even if you position yourself wrong, make mistakes and your opponent knows all about angles, distracting you and is even more confident than you....you will still win.

Hi and thanks for the quiz. I took it 2 years ago and started Ninjitsu and Aikido at over 50 years old. I am very fit from dance and yoga but still had injuries mostly to the shoulder , so you could say my ego took a beating. I have had over a 3 month break and I find I do miss it. So I would like to add that the older beginner really needs to work with their attitude and awareness.
I dont plan to give up. thanks from LIVING IN GERMANY.

Extremely awesome quiz as it picked the 3 favourite martial arts that I was actually doing which were ninjutsu, kenpo and mma and in the exact order that I like them 2.

HEY!! i looooove your quiz!! i always got karate and it makes me happy because, i love martial arts but...karate just drives me wild. i have like, a tear that comes to my eye when i think of karate grand master, he's so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! anyways look i have a question. i got high on karate but low on MMA and judo, this makes me sort of concerned because, i want to try daidojuku combat karate and that's basically a form of MMA. do you think maybe I shouldn't try it? even though it's a form of karate and budo? maybe since i got very high on Aikido, I should do shotokan!!! since shotokan starts to turn into aikido at a certain point, it makes more sense. anyways, thanks for your answer. i can't get enough of your quizzes :)

What is the most simple and effective self defense for a real-gritty street fight?

For almost 3 years I've been taught a mix of Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido and mainly Tang Soo Do, 12 through 15. I was going to continue with the teacher for as long as I could my mom stopped paying for the lessons. I moved out of state and in the town I'm in there hasn't been a school in the area that has impressed me. I want to get into martial arts once more but all of the schools in town are built for boosting confidence and not actually self defense. I want to learn an efficient, effective way to fight as well as build stamina and strength.

whereitsat.. Please read the opening statements, the only right martial art is one you will enjoy continuing. If you enjoy your TKD classes then by all means attend them and progress. Another thing is it's so typical that many "potential students" drop out after obtaining a black belt. I use the word "Potential student" because any true martial artist will tell you a black belt is equal to a high school diploma... you know your basics. Stay with it and achieve a Degree or two. Also never be afriad to cross train. You may find that your instructor not only promotes it, but has a business or personal relationship with other schools, in Japanese based schools it is refered as Godo-geiko - An informal session with multiple related schools. All and all thank you for your comments on taking the test... and best wishes toward your training.
