between Judo and Wrestling which do you think is better overall for mixed martial arts training.
I will also be taking thai boxing for striking.
Te No Kage!
Your first two posts are crossposts. I sense impending doom.
Te No Kage!
if you're serious and not trolling, then both are probably pretty equal in applicability, but the real question is which has better instruction in your area. With so many similarities between the arts, it'd be better getting the higher quality instruction and training regardless of style.
what kind of wrestling? does it teach submissions?
Trolling? I reposted because there seemed to be more people in this forum than the other.
Well, once you post a thread in one place it's considered poor etiquette to post it in another place. I'd suggest you abandon/delete one of the threads (probably this one, since this forum is more about Bullshido and not actual training advice).
Also, try not to post new threads or even post at all without reading the forum for a few days and searching for your topic.
I'd say judo or better yet - BJJ
BJJ wasn't an option, now was it?
Well now, some of the best MMAers are wrestlers, but that's because they had a base (wrestling) before learning submissions and stuff like the guard. So, if you want to learn subs right away, go for judo.
Any reason you cannot train both? If you are going to do Judo for MMA make sure they will have no gi training sessions sometimes.
Id actually sa Wrestling over Judo , There are more Wrestling winners than Judo winners (The highest winning MMA blend is Wrestling + Boxing) And its a lot harder to find a Slack Wrestling club than it is to find a Slack Judo club . You want to train with the most Explosive athletes that you can find , and the ODDS ARE that those are going to be Wrestlers , not to mention that all of their Work is going to be No Gi to begin with , and will give you the feel for the Environment right off the bat .
And you can Train Judo or BJJ in the Offseason if you want to work on Subs , if you can find some decent No-Gi classes .
Wraslin if you want to win
Judo if you want to look good
Judo will teach you subs right away, and Wrestling might teach subs. They're both ragin' good fun. My advice would be to go to each club, check them out *and be sure that you tell them that you are here to train for MMA* and see what works for you. My guess is that most people that you will meet there are either into Sport Judo or Folk/Free/Greco competition.
And Dijimbe makes an excellent point about training with the most explosive athletes available. I have no interest in training for MMA, NHB, etc. (hobbyist), but I've found no substitute for mixing it up with the animals. Superior skill and experience in an opponent are one thing, but going up against someone who has tremendous advantages in speed, strength and flexibility gives me something else that is invaluable for training.
Thanks for the replys, I'll try and take both but time might be an issue.
