    Striking martial arts are combat forms that focus on preserving enough space from your opponent to land shots with your fists, legs, or even your head.
    Boxing, karate, Muay Thai, Tae Kwan Do, and other striking martial arts are examples.
    When you first start out in a striking martial art, you're sure to be concerned about being hurt and having to put up with long training sessions.
    You can be sure, though, that in a street battle or competition, you will be confronted with more savage force than your sparring partners.
    This is where all of your hard work will pay off.
    While most people feel that striking martial arts are more effective in self-defense scenarios, especially when numerous assailants are present, this isn't totally accurate.
    You won't be throwing flawlessly precise single-hit knockouts and avoiding everything your opponent(s) throws at you unless you're in a movie.
    Striking martial arts can undoubtedly offer you an edge over unarmed and inexperienced assailants, but in a self-defense situation with several attackers, the best course of action is to flee or equip yourself and defend yourself.
    The striker's inability to manage close combat clinches was one of the key concerns with striking martial arts that was later exploited by grappling martial arts, especially in 1v1 battles.
