If you are new to martial arts and have no idea which style of martial art is suitable for you, there is nothing to worry about. All you need to know is the place in your area where martial arts classes are held. You can visit them personally and seek assistance there. The instructors and the other staff will be happy to help you out. However, it is very important that you do some sort of research beforehand. You will surely find the following information useful.

When it comes to styles in martial arts, there is the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu , Karate, Taekwando and many more. Today, I will shed light on 3 different types of martial arts that are lesser known compared to their counterparts like Muay Thai:

Aikido

It is a Japanese martial art that works by flowing with the motion of the attacker. It has got nothing to do with opposing when confronted with an opponent. It does not require much physical strength and therefore anybody can learn this type of art.

Hapkido

This is a Korean martial art and is popular for its striking attacks, punches, kicks and joint locks. The students are taught how to use different weapons like staff, cane, rope, nunchaku and sword. In this type, special emphasis is laid on circular motions, controlling the opponent with foot work and body positioning and non resisting movements. There are many people who believe that hapkido and akido are same which in reality is not true. There is a significant difference in their techniques, execution and responses.

Judo

This is a Japanese martial art that came into existence in 1882. The primary goal in judo is how to takedown or throw the opponent in such a way that he fails to move further. Different sort of techniques are used to achieve this target. Students are required to learn how to joint lock, choke, and strangle hold and grappling tricks.
