Thread: just how many does it take?

Furthermore karate is a bad example of an effective striking art. With the exception kyokushin and its related split offs, karate tends to consist of entirely dead patterns and kata, plus a whole bunch of silly and un-retainable material such as circular blocks and chambered punches. Even if you find a karate club that spars, you're still better off with a kickboxing or muay thai club that doesn't still believe that 30 minutes of kata before sparring is a constructive use of time.
I do however agree that judo + boxing/kb/muay thai or some t3h r34l monkey kung fu is better for self defence than just judo.

If you look Self-defence up in the dictionary there is a picture of a judoka performing a makikomi throw onto concrete.
Judo with boxing would come up with some nice SD combinations, but why not just train Jiu-Jitsu to start with?
