What martial arts should I learn if I'm a weeb? Idk MMA stuff at all but I am a huge weeb and my hobbies are juggling and lifting weights and working hard and circus stuff.

Also I was watching soke anshus videos a transgender ninjitsu master and I love them she's inspired me to learn MMA
>>
Muay Thai for based striking plus some boxing, Jiu jitsu for groundwork or if you’re a homo
>>
Honestly, ninjutsu is not really respected, but many people have different reasons for training a martial art. Try a lot of different arts and see what works for you. If you like circus stuff, you might like catch wrestling. It's a wrestling style used for entertaining fights at circuses, festivals, etc
>>
>>33245
Those aren't from Japan though?
>>
>>33246
That could be fun. I can see why ninjitsu isn't really respected, the one I wanted to try was called...I forgot but phillipino stick fighting. Idk I'd want to try taekwan do or some kind of Japanese style kendo or something
>>
>>33244
Huh, this person seems to have a realistic outlook on ninjutsu, that's neat.

I like judo quite a bit, its very effective and practical. Lots of japanese autism as well for stoking your weeb side. Wrestling is strong as well and arguably easier to pick up quickly at least to a level where you would be able to drop an average person. You'd probably want to do some form of striking to supplement it, I'm not super knowledgeable in this area though.
>>
>>33255
I was kinda funposting. She kinda got me into mma but she's a complete fraudster and a meme for sure.

I honestly probably should do wrestling since I'm strong as fuck but I'm also 30 so idk
>>
>>33259
:P gotcha
wrestling is good, and I do wrestling practice and drills on the side, you probably won't go wrong there. But man judo is something else, a whole different beast. Very explosive and lots of really good, techniques. People all know about the throws, but there's also foot sweeps, joint-locks, and pins.
>>

As a weeb do judo and kyokushin so you can satisfy your weeb proclivities while actually learning to fight

What's that
>>
>>33837
Not him but Daito ryu is the original school of aikijujutsu. Small circle jujutsu, if I remember correctly is an offshoot of Danzan Ryu jujutsu, a school founded in Hawaii by a Japanese man who studied judo and a number of older styles.
>>

TKD and shotokan are literally the exact same art, the koreans are just doing that thing they always do where they steal something and then pretend they invented it. Observe

I am aware TKD origins the first name for it tang soo do is literally just how you say karate in korean, but the modern TKD is not the same. Same as karate is no longer the same as white crane kung fu.
>>
>>33866
I mean if we want to go that route then karate doesn't even exist, it's a fake word about a fake tradition to sell lessons to japanese kids

karate is such a catch all term for so many different unrelated things basically every martial art in the world is karate based on its strictest definition
>>
>>33868
This is fair to say but the point of the chart is that other than kyokushin an its kids all karate averages out to men in pajamas doing robot dances and playing tag. Goju might have very different dances to shotokan an shito ryu, but its the same shit at the end of the day. The actual practical difference between all soft karate and tkd is tkd kicks way more.

karate is from okinawa which was its own country when that happened. It became part of japan afterwards

judo, karate and ju jitsu are all very weeby and practical lots of bowing calling the instructor sensei ect.
karate can be a fantastic stand up style that teaches selfcontrol,discipline,perseverance and confidence or can be a waste of time depending on the teacher. especially in america lots of McDojos
this applies to the other two but is more common in karate, i guess since its more well know and so makes better branding?

This trend is dying out I think and I'm very glad for it. BJJ gi designs still tend to be more garish than Judo ones but the Nascar esque patchwork gis have slowly stopped appearing at major events. Personally I limit it to one dojo patch, don't know if I'd enforce that as a rule though because in general I prefer the less regulated atmosphere of BJJ. Even though BJJ guys tend to have horrific taste.

Judo (or sambo if you're from the former USSR)
>Wanna learn to punch and kick?
Karate, either kyokushin or goju-style. Remember that you will develop blind spots, and you must train with other arts than karate to fix these
>Prefer a sword more than your fists?
Kendo or kenjutsu, whichever you can find
>You don't care much for actual swordfighting, you just want to look like a samurai from a Kurosawa film?
Iaido
>You actually want to compete in MMA and learn to fight like a bad motherfucker (and don't care much for the philosophical aspects of Japanese marital arts)?
Kickboxing or Muay Thai. You'll learn to knock someone out cold
>Don't want any brain damage?
BJJ, or freestyle wrestling
>>

Bruh what about judo
>>
>>51636
By any reasonable definition Judo is a separate martial art. In the same way that American Kickboxing is not the exact same thing as Karate. Judo is hugely different in pedagogy and attitude. At this point the Judo curriculum is also pretty divergent from any old school jujutsu style. Jujutsu is obviously the grandaddy of Judo but they aren't the same, that's oversimplification.
>>
>>51638
I would say that old school judo, like Kano taught and maybe a few old ball traditionalist clubs today, was essentially a style of jujutsu. The curriculum wasn't that different than other styles of the time. But your right about judo today. If you went into the average judo club after reading Kano's book about his curriculum you would be in for quite a surprise.
>>
>>51640
Kano added a number of techniques to judo that came from western wrestling. His favourite throw, kata guruma, was a wrestling throw. Theyre not the same thing.
>>
>>51651
I've heard the story too, and while he might have gotten that one from a wrestling manual, similar throws are found in other schools. There are only so many functional ways to pick someone up and throw them.

Besides which there is nothing usual about innovation in jujutsu, even from foreign sources. Several famous styles claim links to China.
>>
>>33244
Also a weeb, I do Muay Thai. Planning on doing BJJ/Judo eventually. Also planning on Wrestling. The ONLY Weeb-friendly arts that aren't shit are Kyokushin (some), Muay Thai (oOoO Asian Shit), maybe Escrima (OoOo I get to knife someone or bludgeon someone with a stick), K-1 Kickboxing (though this assumes you go the Karate-esque route), BJJ/Judo. That's it, the whole "Spirituality" anime-esque shit that LARPERS pull is a load of crap. Just focus on your own journey/ beating the shit out of someone.
>>
>>51636
not really

you could make this argument for sambo or bjj being judo with a different name, but judo is fairly divorced from its origins at this point

I guess I should have expected this but just recently I was looking into Kendo in my area and it is 100% Japanese-Americans or really fucking old Japanese immigrants. I would be the only white person at my local club if I showed up. It reminds me of those stories of /pol/ types going to Greek Orthodox churches and confusing the fuck out of everyone since it's basically an ethnic club in all but name.

I didn't notice at first because he inherited his white American father's surname.

If you're narrowing it down to purely Japanese martial arts, then Judo. It's legit, the learning curve is fucking steep, randori will humble you, but it actually has efficacy in the "real world", and all of the names of the moves are in Nihongo.
That's grappling, in terms of striking arts, you're a bit more limited. I've heard Kyokushin is good, but the art is severely handicapped by disallowing punches to the head. Tbh, if you're looking for striking arts, take the Siampill and go Muay Thai.

Kendo is entirely a "defanged" modernization of sword practice that intended to get rid of the old system of teachings that was done in the feudal system and in koryu. Kendo and its history is pracitcally a full 180° on samurai training and fighting.

Japanese do catch wrestling and their professional league was shoot wrestling. Samurai was a catch wrestler.

Is there anything where I don't have to have a butt buddy or randomly yell like a retard while or not while wearing pajamas? Is there anything useful that is more chill instead of something that requires you to act like a roid raging faggot? Is there something that is not run by somebody that is as greedy as a jew trying to rob me of all my shekels? Is there something where I will not be made into a full blown retard due to all the head injuries I receive? Is there anything that will not have some low self esteemed faggot trying to break my arm to make himself feel better? What do, anons? Is the art of fighting just not for me?

You want to chill and not deal with randos, no clearly the art of fighting is just not for you.
Go do Iaido maybe?

Depends on if you want to learn something actually useful, or just get dressed up and play ninja. On the legitimate side, you could learn boxing, muay thai, wrestling, or bjj. Obviously they all have strengths and weaknesses, but they will actually teach you something of real use in a fight. On the dress up and play ninja side, try aikido, kung fu, ninjitsu, or some bullshit form of karate.

The fact that they have no weight classes make it cool. I miss mma when it had no weight classes.

It's a big part of the actual bladework too. If you watch modern kendo you'll notice that at close range they'll hold their shinai together like lightsabers and feel for openings. In old school kendo though that was grappling time and it basically turned into a jujutsu match. In police kendo tournaments they still allow some grappling. The foot sweep into fatal slashing combo is pretty sweet.

Outside of said police tournaments though you'll have a hard time finding old school kendo gyms. Maybe you can find a koryu that spars, although that's also pretty rare.

Check em, i also noticed a lot of grappling in HEMA too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNfq0UR4S38

Like this? https://youtu.be/28MwRsfJpuc?t=309

I'm very certain that any serious sword martial art has grappling elements, such as holding someone with a sword or dropping them on the floor and stabbing them with a sword or a dagger. I don't think that there is even a old school Japanese martial art school in the EU, i wonder if most sword martial art schools have lost their touch in favor of Olympics Games.

BJJ guys are usually stoned out of their minds so their complete lack of taste is not surprising. That's one of the things that puts me off getting serious about BJJ. The dumb stoner culture. I'm not fucking twelve dog I do adult drugs like cocaine and PCP now.

You only hit with the knuckles if your are wrapped up and wearing boxing gloves. Otherwise enjoy shattering your hand when a guy ducks into your punch and takes it on his skull.
>>
>>69319
Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking of. Modern Kendo has totally eliminated grappling from its ruleset and the majority of koryu that I've seen don't spar. I'm sure there are exceptions floating around somewhere but it seems mostly focused on paired kata. With real swords, so that's cool, but little to no sparring.

Kendo at least is in no danger of going olympic because its ruleset is just so obtuse. The heads of the sport aren't interested in adulterating it to attract TV viewers. If Kendo dies out everywhere other than Japan they don't give a shit.

There are much more practical, more respected schools of Ninpo, but honestly, the only dojos you can train at and not come off ass a weeb poser, ironically, are the ones in japan. Even then the legitimacy of those schools are questionable at best. But in a field, where legitimacy of your art is primarily determined by its pedigree and history, it would make sense that espionage/spy arts, which is what ninjutsu really is, have a difficult time establishing the same reputable lineages as other, more public, martial arts. After years of practicing multiple martial arts, combined with my own interests and purposes for the skills, I would actually say I most closely identify with Ninpo. Perhaps a more secular version, with updated tactics for use with modern military equipment. I think the confusion and scandal surrounding this art are, in part, indicative of the original practitioners success.

Then you get both considering TSKSR teach ninjutsu in the higher ranks. Ninjutsu put forward is just a marketing ploy. Identifying as a modern day ninja isn't coming off as anything but being a tryhard. Just go join an intelligence agency or the military if you want to do any of these. Ninja were just jizamurai of the iga region who knew it like their backpocket, nothing much.
>>
>>73589
What is it about your ego that makes you feel the need to be so brash? Think it's funny for anyone to call someone a tryhard when they're trivializing something you've never participated in. I obviously implied their function as an intelligence agency. Yet you can't help but mentally masturbate and make an ass of yourself. You contributed nothing to the discussion and your suggestion to just go enlist is fucking retarded. Following that logic then, no one should be doing martial arts, everybody just join the military. Maybe some of us have an interest in learning these skills without being zog bitch boy.

Sup OP.

I'm an ex Bujinkan teacher (technically was assisting instructor but I had my own class for reasons), went up to 3rd dan (I should be around 4/5th Dan time and experience-wise but I refused to pay for a belt)
I actually clicked because I recognized him/her from the picture. It's nice that you have respect for it and that it gave you an interest in martial arts, but I would 100% advise against Ninjutsu in any way shape or form.
There are different reasons to practice martial arts, but martial arts in my opinion should always have efficiency has its main root. If it's not, you're not learning the art of war, you're larping.
I'd advise against: aikido, systema (except Secour's combat systema), bujinkan, wing chun, tai chi, krav maga
I advise for: UC (self defense/combatives), sambo, kickboxing, lethwei, kendo (for mindset building), wrestling.
If anyone has any questions regarding ninjutsu, I'll probably stick around for a bit.
