    Hardcore BJJ or MT for two months?

    Hey guys,
    I am going back to Hong Kong at the end of this year and have the deluxe opportunity of doing MT or BJJ as much as I want (ie seven days a week, three or more hours each time if I so choose to). The problem arises though when I don't plan on doing either for the long term- its just that there are no judo dojos or western boxing gyms in Hong Kong (or there is the occasional one which is miles aways and charges in excess of $120 each month)...and that I've always wanted to try out one of the two art styles. Before you ask, no I cannot afford, both times and money wise, to do both. BJJ is $77 a month under a rotation of Takizawa Keisuke, a first degree black belt promoted this year, and three other brown belts whilst thai boxing is $39 a month under the number one ranking gym in Hong Kong.


    With nine months of boxing and around five months of grappling experience (orange belt in judo and have one stripe in bjj), do you think learning muay thai or brazilian jiu jitsu will help me more in the long run if I were to compete in amateur mma hopefully by the end of next year?

    Muay Thai. You won't get what you need with only 2 months of BJJ.

    Serious? Where in Hong Kong are you? Or PM me where you're going to be.

    I've got Judo mates in HK who can probably help you out.

    To Kwa Wan in Kowloon. I plan to go to Kowloon BJJ or Hong Kong Tiger Gym. I know there is Hong Kong Judokan but it costs $1000 HKD to train there and I can only go twice a week?

    Any suggestions would be great :)

    I think you can learn more stand up in 2 months, but it really comes down to what you think your lacking game-wise, I would go over to an MMA gym when your back in your country.

    Think about the possibility of injuries too. Very intensive MT from scratch could be too much for your body to take, your legs are likely to be very sore and bruised and you could end up missing a lot of classes. BJJ on the other hand, although atrociously difficult is probably going to give less physical injuries - once you aren't training with idiots that go too hard on armbars etc. Just thought I'd mention that, it's worth considering. Look at the training you;ve done so far, regardless of the actual level of difficulty or intensity, which one has given you the most bruising or injury? Boxing or BJJ? Now imagine the result if you added proper kicks to the legs and body.

    Its easier to get quality bjj than muay thai in the US (assuming thats where youre from) and two months of bjj is still confusing, but two months of muay thai will get you into awesome shape and will likely teach you more in two months

    I think since you're already boxing I'd go with MT as well. Still, take it a little easy. Three times a week or something.

    By the way, how did your first fight go?

    Also, what are your plans concerning grappling instruction once you're back?
