    Sorry guys, I think I misphrased the question.

    I've already taken into consideration the toil each art could take on my body- right now I am taking classes three times a week as well as lifting three days a week (Sunday is pretty much my only off day- not that I complain). I'm planning that when am in Hong Kong, I'd just drop the lifting and replace it with lessons. Plus, is the holidays for me then so I get more rest than I normally would and my body will recover faster hopefully.

    What I really was going to ask was, is boxing more similar to thai boxing or judo to jiu-jitsu? I don't want to spend two months learning an awesome art but then find out there is nothing I can take back to my original schools.

    By the way, how did your first fight go?
    First fight was a draw on points. The girl pretty much smashed me around for the first round, then slightly gassed in the second...and totally panting in the third. I got the chance to throw in some decent abuse particuarly in the last round when she was leaning/half-clinching against me for half the match but I could easily have been knocked out in the first if my hands had slipped at nearly anytime too. Talk about a bloody explosive fighter, eh?

    I'm switching unviersities. The judo offered there is very decent at an affordable price and it merges with my timetable very well.

    Are you seriously asking if the striking art of Boxing is more similar to the throwing and grappling arts or another striking art? Seriously?

    No. I was asking if boxing is more similar to muay thai or judo to jiu jitsu....since I am going to learn both judo and boxing next year....

    Oh...Judo is closer to Jiu Jitsu. Boxing and Muay Thai not as much.

    Yeah, but with Muay Thai you wouldn't be completely lost. You'd just knee'd some kicks.

    I see what you did there. You ought to be knee'd in the knuts.

    Muay Thai. You'll get more out of it in that time frame.
