Is there anyone who can be considered the Best Martial Artist of all time? Is there somone alive now who is considered to be the best living?

No arguing, No flames, just curious...
 
I think you might need to break it down into categories. Best in the ring. Best in forms. Best in 'street fighting'. Best in techniques etc

I personally like the way Bruce Lee was heading in regards to not teaching specific techniques but what worked for the user. I liked the direction he was going.

I DO NOT like the way they butchered 'Game of Death'.

This should be an interesting thread. :)
 
Deciding the best of all time! I dont feel anyone here is qualified to accurately judge this but......In my opinion I always liked what "superfoot" could do with his legs.

I also agree with Zhao dai Weh about bruce lee!

TRAINING HARD BREEDS WARRIORS.....
 
what do you mean by "not teaching specific techniques but what worked for the user. " ? Bruce lee altered technique per individual? Like he altered the biomechanical motion? Or do you mean he taught diffrent stuff to diffrent people based on their aptitude and physical peramiters?
 
Being a kenpoist, I gotta chime in for the man, Ed Parker. Not
only is he responsible for Bruce Lee's acting career, he's
responsible for many ma-ists career. His art was a strong gift to
the world, as well as his leadership, and his promotion of martial
arts in "the western world" via his IKC tournaments. His influence
in the martial arts community in American and abroad is still felt.

I Wonder how he would have done against Bruce Lee?

They trained together, and shared ideas together. Bruce stayed
at Mr Parker's home for a period of time as well. They have both
publicly stated their extreme respect for each other. Many of
Bruce Lee's students left JKD to study Kenpo .. and many of Mr
Parker's black belts left kenpo to go study with Bruce. Dan
Inosanto being the most famous, probably. He was a Parker
black belt, and then went and studied with Bruce Lee. Although
keeping a good relationship with Mr Parker.

As to how he would've done .. no idea.

Is this a joke?
I went to a website of his and he seems like a Circus freak to me...
 
Frank Dux, Ashida Kim, and Count Dante are jokes.

Great...now I am no Ashida Kims ***** List. I need to watch my back for the Astrological Ninja Attacks.
 
Yes, yes you do. I am his hired Assassin ya know.
 
What about Gilby? He wrote books about some pretty damn unbelievable martial arts from all around the world. I'm not sure if his first name was John or Frank.

He claims he used to take his students to a redneck bar somewhere and cause one of the local good ol' boys to get real mad with the student. It was then up to the student to diffuse the situation orally rather than fistfully. If he failed to do so, he failed his black belt test.

:rofl:
