A misconception is that Karate came from Japan. In fact, it originated from the Okinawans who lived in an independent country called Okinawa, which is now part of Japan. Karate is not just one form of martial arts but a term that covers multiple. This includes Shotokan, Goju Ryu, Kyokushin, Shito-ryu, and many more. Karate is an incredibly effective self-defense style of fighting which doesn’t teach a set of standard responses to a full range of scenarios but instead, focuses on a set of principles that can be applied to any situation.

#5. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art and one of the most practical fighting styles when it comes to street fighting.
