Hi Muhammad,

Thanks for your questions. It appears that there are four: 1 / Most effective for close quarters combbat, 2 / Long range combat, 3 / Multiple attackers and 4 / Gentle yet effective

RE: Scope of my response: I am most familiar with and will limit my comments to Kali, JKD, Wing Chun, and Krav Maga out of your list of martial arts.

IMHO, all of these styles have a long, medium, and short range games and stand alone (i.e. you do not need to study multiple arts). Successfully defending oneself is more about strategy, mental attitude, and luck. An example of being gentle yet effective is using pain compliance (think joint locks, arm bars, chokes, etc.) versus multiple strikes.

I believe that it is the martial artist and his / her ability to successfully execute fundamentals and manage fear / the adrenalin rush related to stress, not a particular style, that may increase the probability of survival.

Seek the simiariites and respect the differences between the martial arts on your list. Perfect practice of the fundamentals makes perfect.

I wish you the best in your martial arts endeavors.
