Spoiler alert: no combat sports are "better" than the others. All the disciplines attract many practitioners, since they meet different desires and help to reach a variety of goals.
For instance, judo will suit people who want to practise a combat sport with strong values that can be applied to "real" life, such as modesty, self control, or respect. On the other hand, if you're looking for a sport to tone your body and get out some energy, it'll make more sense to come into the ring for some boxing.
To find the combat sport for you, answering the following questions can help build a framework for what you're looking for:
- Want to do a combat sport with your fists, feet, or both (or rather, all four)?
- How much aggression do you want in your combat? And with what intensity?
- Do you want to be well protected or more free in all your movements?
- Do you want to include any weapons?
You know more or less what you're looking for, but are you a bit lost between all the different disciplines? Read our article that explains the main differences between combat sports, self-defence, and martial arts.
