    I agree. My only minor modification to the chart would be where the question asks: "Do you have alot of money" it should instead read: "Are you willing to pay good money for your training".

    Since I would contend that I am a very poor person, yet I can still afford to train in MMA, simply because I'm willing to forego other things like alcohol.

    Just curious.
    You know what they say about most fights going to the ground?
    But learning how to hit hard is just as important in my view. Best defense = a good offense.
    Box first. Then you can also find out whether you can take a good punch or not.
    I live in the Philippines. My goal is to react to getting hit with aggression. So if I'm ever in a self-defense situation, I don't just turtle up and get beaten.

    Also, is ground game important? Most fights I've seen that end up on the ground go into a stalemate where both of them can't make use of their position. Side control kneeing doesn't happen. Full mount hammerfists get stopped the moment the guy on the bottom gets a hold of the other guys hands. No one ever uses their guard to control the other guy.

    Most of the time, all the damage dealing stops once theres a clinch. After the clinch, they fall to the ground. After that they just roll around the ground doing nothing.

    You're in the phillipines? Then arnis/kali/escrima is the obvious choice. You are in the fucking mecca of it.

    Exactly. That **** is good and usually trained in a live manner. It has no concern for sport rules and is geared toward real life. I'd cross train in some grappling though.

    Just because I'm in the mecca of the MA doesn't mean I'm near a decent place to train it.

    So far, the only arnis places I've seen are forms oriented. The prototypical arnis school focuses on forms. You'd have to go Manila to get good training. Also, wouldn't the whole using sticks thing not translate well to unarmed combat?

    There are arnis lessons in my universty though. From what I hear, its quality depends on your particular instructor because different instructors focus on different things(tradition, competition etc.) I might as well try it then ,I guess. It'll at the very least give me my minimum P.E. credits.

    If you aren't worried about weapons then there's boxing or muay thai.

    MMA fights? Everyone in MMA trains their ground game. There's no big skill idfference which can lead to stalemate. Watch ufc 1 to see what happens when someone who knows groundfighting faces someone who doesnt.

    That unknown ingredient is alcohol. Are you Asian? A good percentage of Asian people have trouble completely metabolizing alcohol, and turn red etc when they drink. Some will tell you that its because they don't have centuries of drinking alcohol 24/7 like Europeans, who used beermaking as a water purification method. My Vietnamese ex-girlfriend would turn bright red if she was drinking.
