martial arts masters
how longer it takes to master the martial arts mentioned below?

Can someone tell me how long it takes to master the following martial arts? :

-Shaolin Kung Fu
-Wu -Shu
-Viet Vo Dao(Vovinam)
-Wing Tsun
-Tae Kwon Do
-Muay Thai
I want to know for every martial art mentioned but separately. ok I want to know how long it will take to learn the techniques and moves and things like that

In terms of the average based on master rank here are the answers (keep in mind this based on the average person earning that systems master rank – not neccesarily mastering the system though):

Ninjutsu – about five to seven years to get a master rank
Shaolin Kung Fu – around 12 years to a senior sifu rank
Wu Shu – same as Shaolin
Karate – depends on system but about 15 years to master rank
Viet Vo Doa – no idea but a friend of mine earned his master rank in 8 years
Wing Tsun – They really don’t have a master rank but a senior Sifu is around 12 years
Tae Kwon Do – about 7 years to master rank (they have the lowest grade for master at 3rd dan)
Muay Thai – There are no master ranks in this system but one can become a great teacher in about 15 to 20 years depending on your fighting ability and reputation.

Once again most systems recognize a student as a master at 3rd to 4th dan but getting the rank and title does not neccessarily mean that you really are a master. It takes a lifetime to truly master just one system.
