    So do you spar vs multiple attackers?

    Actually, I do MMA too, but I don't list it as a style yet because it's a new class and we haven't started sparring yet. It'll probably be another month before that happens. Also, I don't have time to train more than that. I have this thing called "school" you see. To go to "school" I have to pay "money" which I get from "working". You following me? Good. So, since I work, and go to school, it's kind of hard to find time to train in multiple styles, don't you agree?

    1) Well that's awesome. I used to do that in TKD. Since it was TKD, it wasn't "hardcore" or anything. I bet nobody lasts very long, though.

    2) Then you must live in the Astral plane, where everything is free, time is infininte, and furries are eager to satisfy your every need.

    I definitely agree with poop-loops (heehee poop-loops) that job and school attendance would take away enough free time that proper training in multiple styles would be difficult if not impossible... Note I say proper training.

    I would chime in thusly:

    1) If you're relatively inexperienced then (personally) I'd not recommend cross-training right away, especially if your time is limited.

    2) If you've already got a strong foundation (tough to gauge, but let's just say 5-10 years in a single art, or a black belt or two...), you could probably divide up your time and still make gains.

    I personally train 3 times per week in 4 classes: Karate (x2), Iaido/Kendo (x1-2), and BJJ (x1). It's tough balancing work and family (wife+1 kid), but I think it's still do-able. I may opt out one of my iaido/kendo classes for a BJJ class, however, because I'm really enjoying the BJJ classes.

    Yes, but how much do you pay for all that? I pay $100/mo for BJJ with a few MMA classes in it. If I wanted to start another MA, I'd be looking at spending another $70/mo + gear. I'm not exactly rich, so I can't afford that.

    Hey skatejohn,

    Are you going to answer my question concerning proving Vadha's ties to Tibet, or will you make you're life a bit easier by agreeing that Vadha's point of origin is simply unknown or based on an unreliable story.

    In multiple styles at that. Not only must your businesses be doing very well for you to afford that (hey, minimum wage doesn't get me far), but you must still be superhuman. You should thank your parents for superior genes.
