    Best Martial Art Against Multiple Attackers?

    What is handsdown the best Martial Art to defeat multiple attackers at the same time?

    Most will simply dismiss BJJ for instance (triangle choke while two other guys soccer kick the fuck out of your skull).
    That's utter nonsense in my book.

    Let's take an armbar for instance. Who says that an armbar takes 20 seconds before the opponent taps out?
    In a streetfight against multiple opponents it might actually be quite useful.
    Lightning fast takedown, armbar. Now, the armbar in a streetfight would obviously not be performed with any regard for the attacker's health.
    Instead it would be applied to break his f***** arm in 1 second. Shouldn't be a problem to do that against a regular guy.
    Now that guy is out for good, focus on his friends...

    BJJ might not be ideal against multiple attackers, but it's certainly not the worst idea.

    ----------------------

    Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Aikido and so on immediately come to mind.

    Are they better than BJJ and Wrestling though?
    If a boxer faces 4 opponents and one of them goes for a takedown then what?

    I guess the best suited defence against multiple attackers would be to study a stand-up MA like Muay Thai and a grappling based one like BJJ.
    The grappling based MA should have an emphasis on joint-manipulation (preferably small-joint ones like fingers), wrestling might be the best 1 one 1 technique, but it lacks quick "killer techniques".

    -------------------------------

    What is your opinion?
    BTW. the topic assumes that no weapons (neither knives nor guns) are involved.

    Sv: Best Martial Art against multiple attackers?

    Kyokushin. Go for leader first. Aim for the genitals and the nose, if possible also the knees. Strike first, and think more about attaking then on defence. With adrenaline running through your veins pain will be the small problem to handle.

    Re: Best Martial Art against multiple attackers?

    Tae-kwon-do is a quite "fast" martial art, because it requires a very agile body, uses the legs as a very important weapon. Fast long distance attacks are the key, with considerable strength, so you will be able to keep your oponents far from you and at the same time connect many kicks and some punches in their bodies and faces.
    Original Okinawan karate is based in the same principle, only one hit to knock down your oponent, so at first karate and tae-kwon-do would be my choices (I've seen how experienced black belts face many oponents at the same time and win).
    I'm not sure if "pasive" martial arts like aikido, judo or jiu-jitsu would be effective against many enemies, because they are based in blocking and other maneuvres which are perfect for one-on-one combat, but I'm not sure about multiple attacks. Ninjutsu has a bit of both groups of martial arts, so if somebody can explain a bit more about it, perhaps we'll find it as a good candidate.

    Depends on your strengths.
    Boxing. If your leg is caught, its almost over.
    With boxing you can KO an opponent in seconds and move onto the next by creating space.
    Although, a leg kick you are at a greater distance, the leg kick only usually works against a fatigued opponent (face kick) whereas a body kick to legs or side only does minor damage and thus would not be recommended.

    You would want to take out an opponent as quickly as possible and move onto the next. Spacing is key. Take them out one by one.

    Ground fighting only works one a single combat situation.

    I've done Muay Thai in the past, some boxing and Kyokushin, strangly enough. Bare knuckle kyokushin karate will toughen up your body for sure. It's all full contact, no head shots. If you get a chance to train in it I'd say go for it... first few WEEKS are all stretching though

    Ok........i was sure Kyokushin being one of the hardest and more affective martial arts.

    But i believe Muay is even more destructive.......

    Muay Thai is destructive but so is Kyokushinkai Karate, it all depends on the people who are using it. Andy Hug in his prime beat many of the worlds best Muay Thai fighters in K-1, same with Francisco Filho. I don't believe there is one ultimate fighting style, only styles suited to specific people. IMO it is best to cross train for self defence / fighting. A good wrestling base is always the best to start with, followed by Boxing with Submission Grappling then Muay Thai and other "striking" arts.
