It will practice with the different styles and arts and it came from different countries and with their origins. We encounter it in films, books, even in internet and games. A men, women, children and even adult would practicing martial art. This art will help the students to broaden their knowledge, to discover and research if what is the real martial art and what is the real purpose why they are learning this. Commonly, some people had wrong interpretation about this art and sports, they've known that its all about violence when they watched movies and especially when using a weapons. The one martial artist should not start and not often to get into trouble, compared the one who do not practicing it.
Today, the mixed martial arts is one of the hottest and one of the most popular sports, I think we are all familiar with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Champion). There are so many fighters which uses different styles of martial arts. Jiujitsu is one of the most they ever used, it concentrates in grappling or ground-fighting. My favorite martial arts are arnis, karate, kungfu, aikido, jeetkunedo, taekwondo and muay thai. Arnis is the Filipino martial arts that focuses on stick fighting, hand combat and knife-fighting style. Karate is the way of empty hand, which uses punch kick, elbow and knee strikes, grapplings and locks, originated from Japan. Kungfu is from China, uses different styles and adapted from animals, and it is a circular form or a combination of hard and soft style. Aikido is originated from Japan it means the way of harmonious spirit, used for defense to loose the balance of an opponent like throwing and locking.
