    Well, like I said, the jury is still out.
    On one hand, the learning curve is less, you are learnign to punch, kick, throw and grapple from day 1, on the other hand, its debatable wether you are getting the quality instruction that you would get from a "specialised" school.

    We will see what the future holds...

    I attend three different schools and have four different teachers.

    1.) I attend a MMA school (teaches the standard MT, BJJ, Wrestling and boxing).
    2.) I attend a boxing gym
    3.) At the boxing gym they have BJJ classes.
    4.) Everynow and then I go to a TKD/Kung Fu school.

    I've been doing this for about three months and my game in MMA has really improved by doing this but this could also be because I spend about 12-16 hours per week doing martial arts that contain a lot I mean A LOT of sparring. But when I go to the TKD/Kung Fu school...I really suck at forms..but it's OK cause I can beat everyone down : )

    It's an interesting question. On the one hand, every style has things that work and things that don't. Typically when styles are combined, the ineffective techniques are weeded out, which seems like a good thing.

    However, on the other hand, what's ineffective for one person might be effective for another. Whose to say that some techniques that were weeded out might have been your bread and butter? Just because one technique might be a low percentage technique, doesn't mean that you wouldn't have been one of the few who could nail it.

    What's always worked best for me in competition, and I think most judoka would agree, is that you choose a few techniques that inherently work well for you and perfect them. And it would seem that having more to choose from would be better. This assumes of course that you have chosen an effective art and are willing to devote years of intense training.

    However, if the person is just looking to learn a little self defense and is unwilling to devote years to competitive training, then perhaps it's better to have the low percentage techniques already weeded out.

    I agree with Bruce Lee's JKD philosophy but at the same time, I disagree with it. Cross-training is good--it seems to be the rage these days and rightly so--but that does not mean a technique should be discarded because it did not work effectively the first time for an individual. (Besides, where's the discipline and challenge in avoiding a difficult technique and sticking to the relatively simpler ones?). I believe mastering a technique you had problems with ALLOWS you to better understand your body than to simply avoid it.

    Training modern dance helped my kicks.

    I've trained in four different schools this year.

    And I suck at all of them.

    There are 2 schools of thought:

    1) Train in ONE system and get very good at it and THEN branch out
    2) Mix everything from the start

    Both have their pros and cons.
