What do you consider is the most dangerous (whatever your definition of that is) fighting style (either within or outside of aikido) compared to others and please say why.
I'll give my serious answer.
My not serious answer was 'gun fu'.
There are several possible ways to answer:
1) MA determined by wins in full contact/resistant matches
2) MA that uses the largest muscle groups of the body most effectively
3) MA that uses weapons
4) MA that the most people practice
5) MA that teaches strikes and techniques that other MAs prohibit practicing
I think the MA that satisfies 2) fits the definition of 'most dangerous' the most becasue it would train people to have the most force in a consistent reliable manner.
