    Fixed it for you.

    I agree with all of the statements here so far.

    My 2 cents is that since you have a black belt in a striking system, you had better go do Muay Thai to make sure your striking is up to par with common atheletic standards. I've manhandled my fair share of "black belts" in my day, much more of them needed to get some kickboxing experience before they let anyone know they had ever done karate.

    The ONLY exception to this were Karate systems that were offshoots of Kyokushinkai that ALSO participated in "Knock Down Karate" tournaments like the Sabaki Challenge. If that's the kind of karate you were doing, then maybe you should do BJJ or Judo to round out your abilties, but chances are you may need to finish learning what you think you already know. (Probably better than Muay Thai would be actual Knock-Down karate since it would be a little more similar to what you already know.)

    Yeah, that's different. I was looking for schools in the area where I'm moving this September, specific information and not asking which MA should I take which is by itself a flawed question.

    And that's besides the point that there have been several people since then who have found that thread and benefited from it. I admit I've posted some real crap, but usually despite me being a relative newb I have a pretty good signal to noise ratio if I do say so myself. The exception would be the "General BS" section which is just that, "General BS."

    16 isnt too young to do vale tudo, for a start you won't be sparring until you're ready , and you'd probably get hit less than in muay thai sparring, or indeed boxing - i'm sure everyone knows a few people who've been doing boxing since they were 12. I've been doing wing tzun (the kind with full contact sparring) since I was 14, never did me any harm. Most people are fully grown or nearly there at 16 anyway.

    Excuse the rant, it's just i'm only a few months after my 18th birthday myself and I've had more than enough of people assuming I couldn't handle things because of my age. Most memorable was the time my overprotective mother happily paid for the WT lesson in which i got repeatedly punched in the face, yet wouldn't let me do freestyle wrestling "because it's too violent" - didnt have a problem with Judo either. However wouldn't let me do boxing.

    That sort of thing has held my training back at least 2 years.
