The martial artist obviously. A football player is an expert in playing football not fighting, a martial artist is an expert in fighting and depending on their skill level, doing serious long term damage or even killing them. It's the same thing with Navy Seal vs. MMA vs samuri vs bodybuilder.

Juza the Cloud can take out Ninja easily! :D


So can a realistic superhuman like The Russian. Big, strong, durable and knocked out Nick Fury with a forearm to the face (could even kill him instantly with a tackle). Now imagine someone that strong.


I was teasing him since he brought Ninja into this :p. Well in Reality Ninja are supposely be spy and gathering informations by stealing documents, I read that they use ninja star just to get enemy to look other way.

If the guy sleeping and Ninja happen to have Razor Sharp Blade/Dagger with poison I guess he/she can take him out.

I would say most the time the martial artist, but I think it depends on the martial art since some are more practical than others.

You pit a 245 linebacker against a black belt Aikido, I'd put my money on the linebacker.

depends on the martial art but i would say many would give a decent advantage since many were created with fighting bigger or physically stronger combatants then themselves in mind and turn their usually a advantage into a disadvantage for example i believe a martial art like judo i believe it was would turn the footballs players advantages their size and such against them from my basic understanding on how judo works

You mean like the Tight End Football players who are around 6'3-6'4 and weigh 240ibs? I don't think so bud lol.

Unless that martial artist is well trained in BJJ, boxing, and or some UFC fight experience. He is gonna get the shit kicked out of him. This is coming from someone who does martial arts.



Wrong, my money is on the 6'-3"- 6'4" martial artist who weighs in at 240 lbs. I'm sure Ali coulda kicked the shit out of any football player his weight and height, otherwise the football player would have been a boxer. I kicked the crap out of football players my size and weight when I was in my 20s. They throw a ball run and tackle, I was getting the shit kicked out of me by a US government trained drill instructor, then more martial arts afterwards, because I like fighting....we'll now I'm slower so swords and staffs suit me more. I can't afford to get hit at my age, although I do get the occasional light bruise from sparing.

To those claiming that (american) football players are slow. You should pay more attention. These guys, especially at the professional level, pretty much eat, train and workout all day, every day. They are on an amazing schedule and are definitely not slow.

Now as for the winner, all things being equal, the martial artist would be at a serious advantage, especially if they are a wrestler, grappler. Stand up could be a toss up. These guys are practically used to getting hit by cars, so I mean, I'm sure they could take a hit.

They are slow, American football players train for endurance and strength not the kind of speed and twitch reflex required by a martial artist . Straight line and horizontal speed aren't enough to win an actual fight but that is all a American football player would bring to the table.

Actually that's wrong, they do train for speed and twitch reflex just the same as many martial artists. Most of them are doing MMA in the offseason to cross-train. Some NFL players are pretty much the best all around athletes on the planet.

Completely untrue. Even the largest players in the NFL are both strong and have fast reflexes. When have you seen the players run in straight lines? Other than when their speed is greater than their opponents. Haha. My answer is it depends on the 2 fighting, my guess is the NFL player would maul him like a bear.

Highly train Martial Artist can deliver deadly punch and kick also they know where to hit at (weak points of the body).

You can't train for speed and twitch reflex while at the same time maintaining the kind of strength and endurance required of an American Football player. Training for speed and twitch reflex requires a whole different work out and diet regime then training for strength and endurance . Most smart martial artists do a middle of the road approach ( which I currently do) which is a smart path for any fighter. But an American Football player has to lean towards strength and endurance, their job requires it.

Strength is required for a great deal of speed, presumably to take off after each step as well as brace for the repeated impacts of multiple steps.
