Martial arts have different forms and each has its own set of goals and so it can be very difficult to compare them.

Try to find out about the goals of a particular fighting system and use that to assess if the fighting techniques being taught are effective. Observe two forms of martial arts while their players fight each other. One player may be good in hand fighting while the other player has his or her own expertise. When they fight, take note of the effective movements when they were executed. Sparring sessions between different fighting systems is an excellent way to determine the better techniques to se during matches.
