the combination of Russian Sambo and Brazilian JJ. Striking and grappling skills at its best combination. Fedor Emelianenko, the current undefeated HW champ of Pride fighting uses these two martial arts.

ok.... jujitsu is i beleive more on grapling skills right. sometimes i find it awkward to watch those who mastered grapling. i want more on standing skills.

I took Tae Kwon Do when I was younger. I wanted to take up another martial art in 2000 and chose Temple Kung Fu because I wanted to learn more "self defence" techniques instead of conditioning for the entire session. I think I will take up Kung Fu again when I have more time for myself. I can't really say which I think is better as I don't know most of the types. I would like to learn Bruce Lee's fighting style.

Bruce Lee had two fighting styles. The on he started with was Wing Chun, which is a form of Kung Fu, and then Bruce Lee created a martial art called Jeet Kune Do, but you should be a good martial artists before you start to learn Jeet Kune Do.

Why is that?.....so you mean that u cant learn the art when you are just a begginer. when is saw Bruce lee's movie, he taught the art in all his begginers students.

Well, you can't really say one martial art is better than the other. All the martial arts were made in different countries at different times, for different reasons, so i believe that each martial art has it's own stengths and weaknesses, and so one martial art will be better than another BUT there will be another martial art which is better than the second one, and so on, so you see there is no actual "best" martial art in the world, they are about the same.

ahh ok..... but is it true that the art which is used by a champ in the UFC is the best martial art coz it is already an actual fight. so for me it is very much obvious that the best martial arts are those being used in the UFC.
