We asked ChatGPT on What is the Best Martial Art? Responds is great!

AI Martial Arts

While there is a new AI feature out in the world wide web about helping out the humans, we thought it would be interesting to see the responses we would get if we asked some martial arts related questions.

I'm sure by now you have heard about the hype surrounding the new AI Chatbot called, ChatGPT.

Well we took the time to ask it some questions related to martial arts to see what kind of AI answer we can get out of it.

Check out the below questions and answers to what we thought was going to get VERY interesting to get feedback from an AI source.


What is considered the best martial arts?

There is no single "best" martial art, as different disciplines excel in different areas and have unique strengths and weaknesses. Some popular martial arts include Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which is known for its effectiveness in grappling and ground fighting; Muay Thai, which is known for its striking and clinching techniques; and wrestling, which is known for its focus on take-downs and control. Ultimately, the best martial art for an individual may depend on their personal goals and preferences.

The above seems to be a pretty basic responds, so we asked this follow up question:

What do you consider the best martial art?

As an AI, I do not have personal preferences or opinions. However, many people consider Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to be some of the most effective martial arts for self-defense, as they incorporate techniques from many different styles and also focus on ground fighting and submissions. Other martial arts such as Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu are also popular and have their own unique techniques, depending on the style practiced. Ultimately, the effectiveness of a martial art depends on the practitioner's skill level, training, and ability to adapt the techniques to real-world self-defense situations.

Ahhh, no you're adding in your AI flare, i see. Okay, let's try something a little bit more in depth.

What martial arts is considered the elite art?

It's subjective to say which martial art is considered the "elite" as different people have different criteria for what makes a martial art "elite". Some people believe that the martial art that is most effective in real-world self-defense is the elite one, while others might consider the martial art with the most demanding physical training to be elite. Some people might think that the martial art with the most ancient history or the one that is most widely practiced is elite.

However, there are some martial arts that are considered as elite by some people due to their effectiveness, physical demands, and historical significance. Some examples of martial arts that are often considered elite are Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, and Krav Maga. These martial arts are known for their effectiveness in real-world self-defense and sport competition, as well as their demanding physical training and deep historical roots.

It's important to remember that martial arts are personal and what is elite for one person may not be for another.

O.K, now let's just have some fun with a few questions.

BJJ or Karate in self defense?

Both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Karate can be effective in self-defense, but they have different strengths and techniques.

BJJ is a grappling-based martial art that emphasizes ground fighting and submissions. It is known for its effectiveness in real-world self-defense because it teaches practitioners how to control and submit an attacker using leverage and technique, rather than brute strength. BJJ also includes techniques for defending against strikes and weapons, but its primary focus is on grappling.

Karate, on the other hand, is a striking-based martial art that emphasizes punches, kicks, and strikes. It also includes grappling and joint locks, but they are not as emphasized as in BJJ. Karate is known for its strong focus on discipline, respect, and personal development. It is also known for its rigorous physical training and its traditional forms or kata. Karate techniques may be more effective for self-defense in situations where the attacker is at a distance and a strike can be used to defend yourself.

While both BJJ and Karate have their own unique strengths, BJJ may be more effective in real-world self-defense situations due to its emphasis on ground fighting and submissions. However, it's important to note that no single martial art can prepare you for every possible self-defense scenario, and the effectiveness of a martial art depends on the practitioner's skill level, training, and ability to adapt the techniques to real-world self-defense situations.

And one last one because i know we all want to know what an AI bot thinks of this...

Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris?

it's impossible to say who would win a fight between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris as it is a hypothetical scenario and they never fought each other. Both Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris were highly skilled martial artists with their own unique strengths and abilities.
