We get this question often and in our opinion the answer is simple – the style that you enjoy and will stick with!


The body only works so many ways and whether you call a kick a snap kick or a #2 Front Kick correct application and using the body correctly is more important than just the style. Finding a qualified and knowledgeable instructor will matter far more than the style being taught! If you are comparing styles to figure out which one is better, we’d encourage you to instead compare programs and not just style. Does the program’s goals seem to fit what you are looking for? Do you get a good feeling from the instructors, etc?
