    Batman knows a vast majority of martial arts. He is definetly in the top 5 of martial artists in the DC Universe.

    Note to all bat fans: When I speak of Batman's power levels, I often refer to the O'Neil/Adams years, when he was actually written like a human being.



    Anyway, I'd think he took the moves that he found to be most practical from the styles that he found to be most practical, and blended them together in a style that is unique to him.

    Holy moly....

    You're the man, Batman! Well there's no surprise on how YOU know that. [​IMG]

    Also, I saw your list of the other world class fighters in the DCU and I just have one question. Isn't the Question one of the best martial artists aswell? He was trained by Richard Dragon, am I right?

    Yeah it is, it must take a heck of alot of time to learn each of 'em one by one.

    Why thankyou.

    Yes, he is. He learned from Dragon after almost getting beaten to death...

    Seven, The Question is on the list aswell.

    I recall The Question in one of his threads claiming that Batman knows 127 fighting styles...and I have no idea how many exist in the whole world but I am going to make a long shot and say he knows them all? :x

    One DC rundown claimed he knew well into 124 different martial arts and/or techniques for defensive/offensive training...so basically everything.

    Batman has the remarkable (and pretty much ridiculous) distinction of apparently having trained in every form of combat on the planet... and yet somehow still fails to keep his damn chin down when he's fighting.

    In Bat World there is a thread made long ago that is 99.9% identical to this one.
