I took TKD for like 4 years when I was a kid, damn what a waste of time!!!! I mean jeez... In the past couple years ive taken muay thai, hsing-i and black tiger... Muay thai so far has been the best for me, hsing-i is pretty much garbage.
Migos heteroasexually challaged (everyone all the time)

6 years of TKD don't really do much of it anymore...3 years of jj/BJJ, Muay Thai, Kali/Escrima, Boxing, Trapping (WC)
I love grappling & boxing...like the knees & elbows from MT

Style: Karate, Wrestling
I hear Xingyi(Hsing-I) is pretty straight forward for an internal style, probably just takes some getting used to.
Personal style history(I think we had a thread on this, but it degenerated into a duel):
Tang Soo Do, Tae Kwon Do, Arnis, Uechi-ryu Karate, and HS wrestling (if that counts).
And that's what I call REAL Ultimate Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It counts Mercurius(Hs Wrestling).
There is no reason for this thread to tern into a duel...just share information.
I took Kick-Box for 2 Years, A few months TKD and Tang soo Do and for the past 2 years Bjj. I like BJJ alot and iam gonna keep training on this style.

Style: Submission Wrestling.
a few weeks of judo when I was v.young, few months of TKD when I was quite young.
Then Kickboxing, which eventually turned into light KB :| Next was kempojuijitsu, and after about 8 months into that I started Pancrase, which is by far the best I've ever done, not even comparable to the others. I Also take BJJ which is as good/almost as good. Want to start Shootfighting and Muay Thai as well.

"Training = pain." - I said that.

Ju-Jitsu, Karate and Shinkendo were my first arts. Primarily because I have a facination for ancient cultures, history and archeology. My Ju-Jitsu instructor was my HS hisotry teacher.
Now I'm looking into BJJ or Sambo, and Muay Thai or Kyokushin and I'm having some trouble making up my mind. I know how good BJJ and MT are together, but I always have this need to be different.

Guy Who Pays the Bills and Gets the Death Threats Style: MMA (Retired)
Paul, right now I'm looking into American Combat Jujitsu. It's a blend of JJJ, BJJ, MT Kickboxing, and Kali for knife/stickfighting as a BJJ alternative, especially when the school is only focused on "Sport BJJ".
If it's in your area (not sure how widespread it is), you should check it out as well.

You've mentiond Combat Ju-Jitsu before and I picked up a book the other day by a guy named D'Arcy Rahming (does it ring a bell?) and I will look into that as well. If I can find an art successfully blends all the arts you mention I could save some money! ;)
