Is it possible that someone didn't get my Office Space reference?

Since you crosstrain, your growth as a Kyokushinkadoist will probably be faster than your friends, assuming everything else is equal. This is because your Judo will help you pick out the deficiencies of Kyokushin and better help you understand it."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

You see...in the movie Office Space, one character named Lawrence (picture on previous page) is debating with the movie's central character about what they would do with a million dollars.
Immediately Lawrence answers, two chicks at the same time.
So you see, when the original poster asks about 2 styles I had to respond with the Office Space reference. And unfortunately it was lost. Even more unfortunate was that I had to come back and explain it. In detail.

Yrkoon- I got the reference as well. I saw Office Space at the sneak preview BOOYOW!!!
Back on track, I think 2 styles at a time should be fine, especially since they're both very different (kyokushin and Judo).
Back when I was doing krotty, I asked my sensei what he thought about me cross training in BJJ. His response was, "What's that saying? The fox that chases two rabbits catches neither?..." And then he told me to wait until I was a brown belt to start BJJ classes. I planned on doing my standup at my old dojo, and just learning a ground game at the MMA school. What was I going to do? Interrupt a kata to lie down on the ground and go through the motions of a triangle? And then kiai? I thought his advice made no sense since our style was a hybrid that included judo, and the founder was like a 7th dan or something in judo. So how could cross training in BJJ hurt?
Anyway, I'm now at the MMA school participating in kickboxing classes to remain well rounded and get some exercise, while actually taking notes and loving the hell out of the BJJ class. If I wanted to be neglectful about my training, I'd stop taking the kickboxing and do only BJJ. But I see it as a necessity to be competent at standup (even if I don't always enjoy it. I'm just not a fan of hitting), at least from a self defense standpoint.
So, Hannibal, do both if you can afford it with both time and money.

The only question I see is if you are able to take the punishment of both.... Get used to training injured maybe twice as much as your used to now.
How much time are you going to commit to both? If i'm not mistaken I thought Oyama did Judo also.
