Statistically speaking you would have to research that. Karate has been the traditional western word for Martial Arts in general. Second to that would be Kung-Fu. Mostly both are used as slang for martial arts in general but they are actual styles. This generalization has led to the widespread knowledge and interest in their knowledge as well as many Hollywood movies portraying their use. The three top in America would be Karate, Taekwondo, and Judo or Jui-Jitsu.
