Methodology and ideology; those are the differences in the MA, imho!! Not all MA are cut from the same mold, nor should they be, and this includes their mindset.

First off welcome to the forum Talukdar54 and hope to see you introduce in the Introduction Area and look forward to reading your posts.

As sensei8 said Methology and Idealogy. Because every Martial Art + Style of each respective MA will vary in what they teach. Usually it boils down to what the "Founder" of each one had a preference for teaching.

This is a really broad question. Its like determining the difference between sports like football, soccer, and baseball. There are so many of them out there, even within styles there are variations due to the ideals and principles that each instructor holds to.

An easy way to start tackling this question is to do some online research. Look into various books on different styles, and see where it leads you. There is a whole world of Martial Arts out there waiting to be discovered.

Than looking at the difference perhaps first look at the similarities. That being said, we are all human with all the same moving parts.

MA styles differ depending on what parts of the body they use to attack and defend with.

MA styles differ depending on there intent such as military uses or sports and self defence.

MA styles differ on how they train within their style.

MA styles differ on what groups consider important such as kicking or punching, grappling or throwing; or a combination of two or more major aspects of combat.

MA styles differ in hard or soft techniques or a combination of both.

MA styles differ in traditional vs contemporary approaches. Wearing traditional clothing and practicing with ancient weapons, holding on to and practing ethical values compared with today's contemporary MA styles that use modern training methods combined with whatever works techniques and have contemporary attitudes.

MA styles differ due to cultural differences, depending on one country to another or borrowing one country's MA styles and adapting it with there own needs or preferences.

MA styles can differ focusing more on health benefits as opposed to focusing on combative techniques.

MA styles can differ due to vertual or reality based practice. Movies vs street use is just one example.

MA styles can differ in the use of acrobatics and agility compared to more stable flat footed stiffer martial artists.

MA styles may differ due to emulating animals and insects while other styles base their techniques on human-bio-mechanics.

MA styles can differ due to body shapes such as Somo wrestlers and most every other martial art.

MA styles can differ comparing hobby enthusiasts with those that have religious affiliations.

MA styles differ in many ways and are also more alike if we care to look for the similarities.
