Worlds Deadliest Martial Arts
Aikido is a unique martial arts form on our list in the way it approaches fighting. Developed in Japan, Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba to integrate his religious beliefs with his studies of philosophy and the martial arts. One of Ueshiba s primary tenants was defending one s self while simultaneously not seriously injuring the attacker. Thus, this seemingly soft martial art is massively effective, redirecting the momentum of an opponent s attack and throwing them to negate their attack. Despite its focus on preventing injury, Aikido is one of the best martial arts forms in the world.
