    sport/self defense

    Which would you see as the more beneficial of these two cross training possibilities for sport and for self defense: san shou/bjj or boxing/judo?

    you really can't go wrong with either combination... though I probably would have to go with SS/BJJ more do to the fact that I like kicking.

    This is like one of those silly, if you had to bring one thing with you on an island, what would it be questions......

    ss/bjj

    in the end it depends on the instructors you're sticking me on this island with.

    Yeah thats the one facet that is missing in boxing/judo:kicking.
    A solid kick using your shin into someones thigh then a solid uppercut has got to be good kozushi(spelling?) right? But then again just the uppercut will suffice kozushi too.
    Nanaya, there is a school that is offering ss/bjj and I don't mean to be a bandwagon jumper, but it seemed really cool.
    Right now I go to 2 different facilities to train the boxing/judo. The SS/Bjj is in one gym. Not that there is anything wrong with the sweaty, down to earthness of the dojo and gym I go to now. Also the boxing gym is probably going to be moving. Not really sure how far but it seems it might possibly be out my range. But no one seems to know where they are gonna relocate too yet.

    I agree the instrucor is absolutely a key factor.
    All are excellent(in my opinion) The only thing that might be a consideration is that the SS instructor (who has a decent track record for training fighters) has never actally stepped into the ring himself. Or so I was told by a student of his. I think I might politely ask the instructor myself.
