    2 years should be enough time for one to understand the principles of a fighting form.

    if you do them both half-assed then you will be a jack of all trades .. but if you do them both with your entire full ass then you will be unstoppable .. better than Mr. Miyagi.


    This will take your full ass though. The whole thing.

    Make sure you're competant in the basics of BJJ. (you're blue belt so you should be) Then just keep sparing with no gi as much as possible, this will make you excellent on the floor.

    Mauy Thai is one of the best stand-up syles around.

    IMO Thai/BJJ cross is very effective.

    Go for it: BJJ and MT do not have contrasting principles; you'll learn something which completes the other.

    As for self defense, a really good combination would be:
    - WT for quick /fast /dirty attacks without warning
    - MT for striking and conditioning vs strikes
    - BJJ for groundfighting / throws

    ...but of course you need to have time and money to reach proficency in the three of them....

    I think mixing styles is a great idea as long as they compliment each other. For example: Mixing kung-fu & TKD would be bad because one style's soft & the other's hard. TKD & karate would be a much smarter choice.

    Yes, I do believe you can mix striking styles with grappling. This is something I'm actually working on developing right now. I hope to have a pretty good system developed by 1st quarter of 2003.

    I don't know. I think on the street MT and BJJ lose some effectiveness.
    If you are strong, and throw a good punch to someones head, you are likely to break your hand.
    This is not a good thing, espescially if you prefer grappeling like I do. Also, I am not sure how MT kicks work with shoes on. I only basing this on one experience. A guy I know that has been MT for a few years was at a night club, got in a fight, threw a high kick, ripped his groin muscles and got his ass beat.
    Of course, that could be a huge fluke. I have never seen the "Streetfigthing" aspect of BJJ. I would like to see how that differs from the competition style I have experienced.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    Cross training is worth every moment you spend on it. For years instructors tried to convince us that we had to have YEARS in a style before we could "...truly understand the principles and depth of the art." They were basically full of **** and wanted you to stay in their school so they could get the most money the COULD out of you.

    Bruce Lee once said that if you wanted to beat a black bel just take one year of wrestling and one year of boxing. He was correct. If you want to study in one place for 20 years and learn nothing but theory after the first 2 then go right ahead.

    I agree with Dan that mixing TKD and Kung Fu is not a good idea: 2 negatives do NOT equal a positive.

    "The only "ancient" art that's worth a damn is Wrestling.
    Pretty much everything else that is called "ancient" is just masturbation without touching your genitals." -Phrost
    "All warfare is based on deception." -Sun Tzu, ca. 400BC


    Reverse punch Kiaii!!!
