    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    your opinions on krav maga and hapkido

    I have been practicing muay thai for three and a half years and i love it, but i have been wanting to train in other martial arts as well just to try something, i really wanted to try bajiquan but i did not find any school around here, and i also tried BJJ but i didn't really like it much ( I did learn some really cool locks though!) and recently i have been reading about Hapkido and Krav Maga and i was wondering if they are any good (i know they both involve full contact sparring between two people so that's a plus) but i haven't met anyone that has practiced either of these two arts...so any input here will be appreciated.

    P.S and which one would be better to try hapkido or krav maga?

    Why the blazing dunderfuck would you even consider Hapkido over BJJ?

    Well, that's a compelling argument.

    Hapkido as a stand-alone doesn't settle right with me. It's neat, and it makes a cool addition to any other martial art, but ju jitso is a little more... compete.

    Krav Maga uses Muay Thai strikes, so unless you are looking for weapons defenses, it's a waste of your time and money to go that route. It would probably be better for you to round out your game with a grappling art, such as BJJ or submission wrestling.

    Oh my god, I've just sided with the BJJ nutriders.

    thanks for the input gunfighter,i didn't know that krav maga had the same striking techniques,i will defnitely keep that in mind, what about judo? would that be a better option? i mean there are both standing and ground techniques in it...I qould just need something quick and effective to improve my grappling abilities.

    Judo would help. Try that out, and see if they focus at all on newaza work or if they are mostly sport Judo based.

    Before we can give you any advice we need to know why you didn't like BJJ.

    Too much mental work, I guess.

    I'm sort of kidding. But yeah, Judo would be leaps and bounds better than hapkido.
