I was wondering which styles people find to be the least practical to use in an actual combat situation. I started to think about this when i watched a video of some guys doing Capoeira. I seems like it would be very hard to actually hit someone with any of those kicks and everything that people in this style do looks extremely telegraphed. Thoughts?

Capoeira, telegraphed? sort of. think if i this way.... i'm going to kick you in the face in such fast repeatition that if you are still there and blocking, not only will you be knocked out but your arms will be broken too. it has it's place and it's key is speed.
a lot of the specific weapon focused martial arts are not practial (when he hell am i gonna run across Wind and Fire Wheels or a weighted Yo-Yo?)
The only style i know of that is really not practial is Scorpion Style Kung Fu
Carley Simon, thanks for writing that song about me!
