Cross-training in Shihou-ken/Kyokushin and BJJ
I've had previous experiencein Goju ryu karate and Bujinkan taijutsu. Both were OK, but quality dwindled (No surprise). I haven't been training in six months after leaving them both, and I'm looking for more effective arts. I love karate, but wish to try knock-down karate. There's two dojo less than an hour away; one Kyokushin, the other an off-shoot (Shihou-ken). I'll provide links to both, although the Shihou-ken site is kinda crappy.
(Teaches gung fu and tai chi as well. Just want the Kyokushin.)
I also wish to train, primarily, in Muay Thai and BJJ at the Anthracite Combat Club.
Any tips or pointers? Should I do both knock-down AND MMA? Or just stick with MMA? If anyone can provide some feed back on the training in all three, that'd be great. Thanks a bunch.
