There are so many different types of martial arts all with specific techniques, moves, and forms. Each focuses on specific things and there is a martial art that is right for everyone.

It is important to find the martial art that is right for you and best fits your knowledge and strengths. Some martial arts are easier to learn than others and some take more time to learn.

If you are looking to learn martial arts as quickly as possible, you can easily find a system that will work for what you need.

Here are the martial arts that are great for fight training.


Jiu-Jitsu is successful because it deviated from standing directly in front of your attacker and throwing punches.

Throwing punches at your attacker is not going to work in your favor if you are in an altercation with someone who is more skilled than you.

If you are shorter or smaller than most people, this is definitely a good martial art for you to learn.

Size does not matter in Jiu-Jitsu. It was created so smaller people could defeat larger attackers.

Jiu-Jitsu focuses on techniques that use the abilities you learn in training to defeat anyone of any size or strength.

This is why it is a great martial art to learn, but there are also techniques that are easy to learn quickly.

There are many techniques that you can learn with a partner which also helps quicken the learning process. You don’t need to have a partner, but it will help.

There should be some local Jiu-Jitsu gyms you can train at in your area.

Check out the free online train-at-home program that we offer. The best part is it is free.

The main reason we like Jiu-Jitsu training as the best martial art to learn quickly is that we have seen it work.

My son took Jiu-Jitsu when he was around 7 to 8 years old. He got tossed around by kids smaller than him in the class.

It took him about 3 months to pick up enough moves to then start winning. The kids that beat him when he first started had a more difficult time winning once he learned the moves.

If you are older than 8 years old you can probably pick it up just as quickly or quicker.

I am not saying you can beat everyone up in the world after 3 months I am saying your skills will increase quickly.

Krav Maga

This is a well-known fighting system for self-defense that is often used in the Israeli military. The members of the military that use this have to learn it quickly.

Different militaries are taught Krav Maga because it can be learned quickly but are still extremely effective.

It combines wrestling, boxing, judo, karate, and other forms of martial arts. Krav takes the techniques that work in a fight and adds them to their training.

Krav is known for training people on how to fight and self-defense techniques.

You want to actually be able to use what you learn if you encounter a bad situation. Krav Maga was actually based on street fighting.

If you are looking for a system that is easy to learn and effective in self-defense situations, this is a good choice for you.

There are several military bases that currently teach Krav Maga. This is how you know that this fighting system really does work.

Mixed Martial Arts

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full-contact sport that basically mixes many techniques from all types of martial arts.

This also gives you broader knowledge and education about martial arts. MMA is a mix of different fighting forms and techniques.

MMA is not just for men, there are also women who train and fight in MMA. This is great because it allows any person of any gender interested to fully learn how to do this type of martial arts.

So, no matter what your gender is, you are capable of street fighting and self-defense.

There are not nearly as many rules and guidelines in MMA when compared to sparring in Tae Kwon Do or other martial arts.

Most beginners in martial arts get really caught up in the strict rules that you have to learn and follow.

At the beginning of UFC, you had no weight classes and no time limits with few rules.

The matches did not have a time limit at first. As the UFC evolved they did add rounds with time limits just like boxing rounds.

If you watch MMA you can see where this training would make you pretty tough against any street attacker.

I train in MMA and I know the basic training can make you a formidable opponent in a quick period of time.

This is with the understanding that you are actually training and practicing hard.


Karate is usually the most well-known and popular martial art. This is because it is the most prevalent martial art portrayed in movies and media.

It is also very well-known because of the number of people that practice it. Because so many people practice it, you can tell that it is somewhat easy to pick up when you first start.

Karate focuses mostly on punching, strikes, and kicking.

There are actually many different forms of karate. The most important parts of karate are power, balance, and speed.

Karate is definitely a martial art that requires having a good balance. Karate is also such a great martial art for self-defense due to the training.

Because balance, speed, and power are so important, karate is an easy martial art to learn quickly. Most people are already good at one of those three things.

You just need to heighten your prior strengths and focus on learning new ones as well. Karate can be difficult when you are specializing in it, but the basics can be learned easily.

I took karate when I was younger. In school, all you had to do was to learn katas and you could get your belts quickly.

I went from white belt to brown belt in 12 months just learning katas. I was looking for more fighting skills so I left to start training in Jeet Kune Do.

Learning how to fight and knowing self-defense was more of what I was looking for in training.

Karate you can do well at and advance quickly depending on the school. You just need to figure out why you are taking martial art and why you want to get good quickly.


Do Tae Kwon Do schools usually focus on kicking techniques? If you think you would be great at kicking then Taekwondo may be for you.

The basics of kicking and punching are pretty straightforward so you should be able to learn this quickly. You add in the katas and you still can really learn fast in this martial art.

If you want to go to competitions or get good enough to go to the Olympics then you will definitely need to increase training.

The more you train in the system you are in the faster your skills increase. You want to learn martial art quickly then train 5 days a week for 1 to 2 hours a day.

There are plenty of Taekwondo schools in and around your area. This is one of the most popular martial arts in the world.

I think many kids and adults just love high-flying kicks so they want to learn this type of martial arts.


Overall, there are many different forms of martial arts that can be learned quickly. You can learn the basics of some martial arts quickly without completely mastering them.

Putting in time and effort will easily get you to learn these new concepts and skills. It is, however, important to realize that you may not catch onto every technique super quickly.

There are always certain things that each person excels at and certain things that each person may find a more difficult time learning. Find the martial art that is right for your body.

Don’t get down if there is something you don’t get right away. Work hard at learning new skills and have the confidence that you can do it.
