Might seem strange that I post about martial arts here, but it would make sense given the physical nature of martial arts. I watched a video one time on youtube titled "The physics of tae kwon do". It was very intereting, using physical laws and equations to describe why how devastating a certain punch or kick is. So which style of martial arts is best for self-defense? I'm guessing it's between tae kwon do and jujitsu. Tae kwon do because its focus on kicks that are not only devastating but also allows one to attack without being too close of proximity. Jujitsu because of its no-frills nature is tailored for sole purpose of self-defense, whereas most other styles of martial arts have many spins and jumps that are more akin to gymnastics than combat/self defense.
