    Why does it bother you that other people like studying more than one thing. Plus, I've already built enough of a "root" already, and it didn't get me much of anywhere.

    I'm going to stay in Korea for a year and train at a MMA gym there, so I'll get to find out about in person the MMA scene in Korea, but I'm still interested in how the KMA's have been impacted by MMA. I've seen a few clips of Kim Dong Hyun on Youtube, it seemed his style focused more on kickboxing and jits but that could be totally due to his gym and his bodytype. I'm pretty sure there are probably a lot of judoka involved.

    Diversification represents change, change is good.

    Someone should have pounded that into General Choi's head back in the 50s...
