It's interesting to see that to this day some people still relate fighting ability to a martial art or training method and not the particular individual who does the fighting.
It's combination of the strengths and weakness of the art plus the way they are taught added to the individuals ability to use them effectively.
If the art is ineffective then no matter how well learned it is it will always remain ineffective. If the art isn't taught properly then it wont be learned properly and finally even if the person learns it properly and it's a good solid set of techniques, failure to apply them properly will still result in failure.
It stands to reason that not all arts are equal. Some will prepare you better than others.
