    Yeah but you really consider training in Body Combat as training in striking?

    Nope but there's only so much space in the stye bar. Check my profile for more details of my history. At a push I might class Body Combat as shadow boxing...

    Now in a more serious tone, I think a lot of people a few years ago didn't even knew that grappling exists, I mean the average dude in the streets or kid, When I started martial arts at 17 I did not even consider something outside of striking All I wanted to do was kung fu, muay thai or a badass version of karate, which I finally settled to start with (Kyokushin), not for a split second I googled Grappling or Judo.

    Googling shows:

    Boxing 178.000.000 results (0,29 seconds)
    Karate 90.100.000 results (0,24 seconds)
    Kung fu 85.500.000 resultados (0,27 segundos)
    Grappling 14.100.000 results (0,25 seconds)
    Judo 46.400.000 results (0,29 seconds)
    Jiu jitsu 21.300.000 results (0,22 seconds)
    BJJ 12.500.000 results (0,22 seconds)

    And this is now after the UFC and MMA is MUCH more popular here in south america since it began airing in some importan channels
    Imagine a few years ago and the numbers for grappling arts could be much more obscure to the average googler dude

    Yeah that dude probably has no training, but really makes for it with his balls and russianness

    and the ratios for google results are:

    4.1 results of striking arts for every result of the grappling arts

    With all the popularity of MMA Now, I have female cooworkers that watch the UFC thats unthinkable of a few years ago

    Body Combat is shadow boxing then. Have you ever put on protective gear and went at it full contact?

    In Body Combat - no. It's a martial arts based fitness class, nothing more. All the punches, kicks, knees and elbows are against air. However I have put on protective gear and gone full contact while training in Jujitsu.
