I realize it's important for non-grapplers to get some grappling experience (hence my insufficient dabbling in Judo.) However, my experience coming from a TKD/Karate background is that though I could do some very nice looking kicks, and had some rear-leg kicks with ok power, for the most part I could not kick at all by Kickboxing standards. So for people coming from a TKD/Point Fighting back ground I strongly recommend MT (or other serious kickboxing) to make sure you know what you think you know before moving on to something else. (If you do MT for a few weeks and aren't learning anything new, then perhaps you don't need it... otherwise you may find you have much indeed to learn about basic kicking and punching.)
