    I got Kenpo, not really sure how it arrived at that. Some of the questions are pretty silly, and I'm sure a lot of arts are probably misrepresented by creator's understanding of them, but it's still fun. What did you get?

    Kenpo again. Runner ups MMA and Jujitsu. I didn't agree with Tae Kwon Do being next runner up and Wing Chun down by the bottom. I would of reversed those two.

    Apparently, Kempo is THE answer for which martial art you should take.

    It's almost like any answer you give is going to get you a certain answer. Makes me wonder what the MA background of the person who designed the quiz is. Dare I guess they are a Kenpo black belt? ;)

    In order, my results were:

    Kenpo
    Taekwon-Do
    Judo
    Ju-Jitsu
    Wing Chun
    Aikido
    Ninjutsu
    MMA
    Tai Chi

    Pax,

    Chris

    Most likely to marry ALF. Oh sorry wrong test.
    I got Kenpo. I really thought my answers were
    Tai chiey I am guessing my insistance on using
    Groin shots disqualified me in that.

    Has got me curious if there is a formula to best predict what MA you are suited to.

    Just go to places close to home and see which school will work for you the best. A quiz cannot replace actual research of the schools around you.

    It seemed to me that many of the questions played to the fantasy of martial arts, not any real understanding of martial artist or martial arts systems.

    I couldn't see any reason why it could not assist in making a selection as a beginner easier. Obviously could not replace first hand experience but as a guideline could help with selection of suitability. I'd see it more as a game\quiz than anything to take too seriously.

    I got Kenpo too, which is good I guess because that's what I study, but the amount of guys on here that got kenpo seems too high.

    It kinda makes me wonder if the test was written by a Kenpo school owner who wants more people to try kenpo. Not a bad idea, it's marketing cleverly concealed in a short online questionare.123
