Which fighting style is the best to learn ?

I want to join a club soon, but I don't know which fighting style I should pick.

Not too complicated to learn, can be used IRL for self defense

      FPBP.

      Boxing, OP.
      Easiest to pickup, cheapest, most practical, most effective and biggest community in which to improve your skills.

      To paraphrase Bruce Lee, anyone with six months boxing and six months wrestling training, can beat any black belt of any pingpong martial art.

      >Buhhduh fights go to ground, train BJJ bro
      This is only true if one or both parties don't know how to fight. Regardless, don't get in to street fights.

          Boxing is boxing anon.
          Depends on your location really, but most cities have both boxing and kick boxing gyms.

          Anon that quoted Bruce Lee here.

          With that list, it's down to personal preference.
          Muay Thai and kickboxing (assuming you're in the US) are fundamentally the same thing.
          MMA is the most complete, whereas western boxing is the most widely available, easiest fundamentals, most complete single style; and if this is a factor for you, the cheapest. If socializing is a factor, boxing is also the best in that regard, for either gender.

          Note that sparring in boxing or any contact sport is inherently dangerous. Boxing is exceptionally good cardio and strength training, but decide ahead of time if sparring is worth it for you, and know that the likely answer is no.

          >t. GG boxer, SOF veteran, many fights won in different modalities, and I would run away from a street fight 100% of the time

            alright, I'll think about it
            It's a bit disappointing to do boxing and not spare with other people

    I went with capoeira because I don’t like fighting and don’t live in an area where it might be necessary. I like music and dancing but I’m not attracted enough to men for actual dance, so capoeira fits perfectly. Also capoeira girls are really hot.

    Just join whatever seems the most fun to you as long as it has hard sparring.
    Even the ones who don't have sparring like Capoeira or Tae Kwon Do are still pretty fun.

    Though, I gotta warn you, don't go there thinking you'll become the ultimate warrior or something. Just treat it like another sport.
    Martial arts are useful and can give you confidence, but if you only want to learn them to fight retards in the street you are gonna have a bad time.

    Dom't listen to karate v.s boxing tards its a match up as old as time. Every martial art is incomplete and you must mix amd match if you want to become the ultimate fighter

    He said simple and effective. Grappling (and therefore judo) isnt simple, and most east asian arts arent effective unless u train for years. Pick boxing, kick boxing or muay thai. Muay Thai is the most effective and brutal out of those.

    You need to spar, thats the price of being prepared and being able to fight. Otherwise you might as well have no training.

    Depends entirely on what's available to you within what you consider a reasonable distance to travel at least 3 times a week. Best doesn't mean shit if there's no one teaching it that you can get to.
