What is the best martial art for self defense?

What is the best martial art for self defense? 

You've probably heard many talks of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga, Judo, Karate, Muay Thai, kickboxing, Wing Chun, and other martial arts of being the best for self defense. What's the best martial arts for self defense? The answer is simple and straightforward - there is none.

There's no martial art that triumphs over all. Each martial art has its own pros and cons. No style is superior or inferior over another. There are however times when certain techniques and principles only apply in competition rather than in self defense. It all depends on the skill of the user. 

Bruce Lee, one of the most inspirational martial artists, once said "man, the individual, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system."

The best advice I can give you is to embrace all martial arts and take lessons from each one. Practice a martial art that suits you and your physical wellbeing. As long as certain techniques are practical in certain situations, apply them. Learn to see martial arts as a set of tools to aid you instead of fighting styles to use at your disposal. Master using martial arts effectively rather than search for the most effective martial art.
