Nov17 This has been asked a million times. Itâ€™s a cmoomn misconception that one style can beat another. You will get people saying â€śKarate could beat Kung Fuâ€ť or the other way round, or theyâ€™ll say BJJ could beat everything if theyâ€™re MMA meat heads. The reality is that it depends on the fighter, and it depends on the training.Karate and Kung Fu were both made for actual fighting. Kung Fu is Chinese and developed from the Feudal infighting in China. Karate is Okinawan (Japanese now) and was developed from Kung Fu for Okinawan peasants to defend themselves against the Japanese.Kung Fu is an overarching term for many many styles â€“ some are more effective than others. Modern Wushu is more flashy, traditional Shaolin is less so, Sanda/Sanshou is essentially kickboxing with throws. It usually involves hand and foot striking, elbow and knee strikes, joint manipulation and throws/wrestling and will also involves forms. It sometimes uses weapons. The philosophy in Kung Fu tends to be softer and more circular; by rotating body parts you gain more power and also can redirect.Karate also has many styles within it â€“ again, some are more effective than others. It mostly involves hand, foot, elbow and knee strikes, with forms (or kata) with some styles also teaching grappling, locks, joint manipulation and throws. The philosophy in Karate is more linear, which is not to say it doesnâ€™t utilise rotation to gain power. However, it remains very much rooted, using the legs to supply the power for punches and kicks. (I would mention Iâ€™ve done a total of 3 months of Karate, so my knowledge is more limited)Iâ€™d recommend going to a few classes, checking out which style looks better taught, and which one you like the look of more. Remember, both of these styles are very traditional, so youâ€™re going to need to keep at it for a long time to get good. Itâ€™s very rewarding though.
