I'd also give the advantage to the Minbari because they also make good use of guile, deception and cunning in ways that Klingons don't seem to either grasp or acknowledge as useful skills for a warrior. We see those skills employed by the likes of the Cardassians and Romulans...who like fighting in the shadows. Klingons prefer the direct approach even when its more likely to get them killed.
That's because Klingons view subterfuge and deception as inherently dishonorable. I'm inclined to agree with them. There's something to be said for direct, forceful, absolute truth.
