which japanese and chinese martial art is more effective for explosive strength and improving physique?

I would like to know from people with a great height of experience in this field. Also, how often should I train and practice what I am taught? I don’t really know a thing about martial arts but i have seen a couple of martial arts movies (Enter the Dragon, Kill Bill vol. 1and2, The Next Karate Kid, and The Karate Kid-which i loved both the girl and boy main character! Please let me know!

you have to go with Hung Gar or Karate. it’s a chinese kung fu. it’s more than fighting (, taekwondo and boxing…all they do is ‘watch you fight’ )

Hung Gar has forms that….
- are good for your health (gong ji, a meditation form)
- build strength
- help you with fighting applications

- improve hand-eye co-ordination
- calm the mind etc….

some schools have you learn the traditional lion dance.!

the hard part is finding a GOOD master.

    no art is better than any other.

    first thing you need to do is find out what is available in your area. it’s easy for someone to say…you need to learn hung gar…but it’s not so easy if there isn’t a hung gar school close to you is it?

    if you want explosive power and physique…you need a very "cardio" oriented art such as krav maga (for self defense) kickboxing, muay thai, boxing. something very active.

    i would say that the Russian martial art of sambo would be the best for explosive strength and conditioning. But that would because of the type of training they do. if you find a sambo gym stateside let me know. but there is no correct answer to the question. what we really all have know in the united states are personal interpretations of the original martial art. i would advise you to find local places of interest, go sit and watch a class and see if its something you would enjoy doing. don’t settle with the first one, there are positives and negatives to all art forms. check them out and ask students what they like about going there. when you are starting out having fun is the most important thing. good luck

    if u like bruce le u should do san shou which is a chinese martial arts that was created by monks to defend themselves it has kicks,punches,takedowns/throws. San shou is really effective cung le strikeforce champion uses as hus main style and it has a good reputation for having a lot of legit schools. karate is good if u can find a school that doesn’t suck which is pretty hard these days. Judo is a good one it comes from jujitsu and has lots of throws. u are limiting yourself to just Chinese and Japanese arts there are many good styles out there from Thailand,Cambodia,Russia,Korea,Indonesia,Philpines,Brazil, and United states
