    For many traditionalists, their martial art is their religion. Good luck trying to change that. And hey, why bother anyway? Sounds like you made the effort, who says itís up to you to correct someone elseís bad choices? All you need to worry about is you. Hell, you keep training, and your cousin will find YOU beating his ass just like that MMA guy did. Maybe that will bring him around.

    Yeah! Im planning on crosstraining in some western boxing in the near time, then when I have money and time crosstraining in this MMA school

    Now when should I start crosstraining in boxing? I think in maybe a year and half from now, what do you people think?

    Box now, if you can swing it. I take box/kickbox on the side. The workout is awesome and it just makes you better at other things.

    What I mean is with only one year of experience in Kyokushin can I start crosstraining boxing?

    Yeah, go box. Nothing else can teach you to keep those hands up like boxing, and the footwork and use of angles will come in pretty handy.

    One question for crosstrainers do you have problems in sparring like trying something you are not supposed? Im thinking jabing people in the face during Kyokushin sparring after starting western box or lowkicking boxers

    Maybe at the very beginning, but you learn to segregate fairly quickly in my experience.

    When Kyokushin sparring, it's never been a problem. I think something about not having gloves of any sort on reminds me that punches to the face are a no-no. I will admit that on the occasions where I'm straight boxing with someone, I often find my leg twitching to throw a kick at the end of a punch combination, but I always catch myself before I actually throw the thing.

    I don't crosstrain, but sparring at my gym is split into boxing days and muay thai days. I've never had any problems. It's much easier when there's a difference in equipment, like there will be for you. I assume you don't wear boxing gloves in kyokushin, so as long as you keep that mental difference, you should be fine.
