 It seems that one of the most frequently asked questions on the budo forums is "Which martial art is best?" or "Which martial art is best for me?"

The truth is, there's no single best martial art. The one you should study is the one that that most suits your goals. Want to compete? Choose judo or a karate style that promotes competition. Want to develop intense focus? Choose iaido (swordsmanship) or kyudo (archery). Want to do really high kicks? Choose tae kwon do.

Whatever you do, find a school and get started. There's no better way to understand what martial arts practice is like than to practice martial arts. Or, as Randy Dauphin Sensei says, "There's only one way to know what it's like to get hit! Want to know what it is?"

But seriously, if you're in or near Ann Arbor, stop in to JMAC to watch a class or visit our website today!
