Martial arts disciplines are booming. Men's Health magazine talked to Martin Rooney, founder of Training for Warriors. To find out which one is right for you:

Jiu-Jitsu-It's a ground-based grapping art

Training: Precise practice that involves using throws and ground work to force an opponent into submission. Tip: Learn to avoid panic when you're in a difficult position like being choked.

Judo-It's a standing-based grapping art and Olympic sport

Training: Throws and ground fighting that forge total-body strength and stamina and amazing balance and gripe strength. Tip: Learn how to fall before you worry about how to throw.

Sambo-It's a combat and self-defense system developed by the Soviet Red Army.

Training: Stand-up and ground sparring using throws and submissions, sometimes with strikes. Tip: Hone your technique before working on your system.

May Thai-It's the art of eight limps-you can strike with hands, feet, elbows, and knees.

Training: Punches, kicks, and elbows, using a punching bag or with an opponent. Builds fierce cardio and strong legs. Tip: Focus on technique over intensity.
