    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Do i have to learn kickboxing/muay thai?

    Im not trying to become a professional MMA, but atm im doing 3 classes a week. Wednesday is mixed grappling (Kali Silat/ Judo/ Shooto/ BJJ/ Dumog), thursday is strength and conditioning, and friday is MMA class (Striking, Grappling, Submission and Conditioning).

    Im just wondering if im missing out by not doing muay thai, the reason i dont do it is because i dont have the time or money to pay for any more lessons on a weekly basis.

    Thanks for any help...

    You'll only be missing out if your planning on competing.

    It takes years to really get proficient in the arts your already training, if your not compelled to actually get in a ring and fight your not really missing out on anything... except maybe the pain of learning to block with your shins.

    Do what you can when you can and don't worry. You can always add something to your training later on if you feel the need.

    As a grappler who recently started MT, I've been enjoying it loads. You may be 'missing out' in that sense.

    What the heck kind of program are you in that encourages you to train over 6 different arts?

    It's a JKD school curriculum. All the grappling arts are being taught together.

    He's essentially learning three curricula

    A slightly self-defense oriented grappling class, with some filipino and indonesian takedowns, but a solidly shooto base(which looks close enough to BJJ with more scrambling and leg locks)

    A conditioning class.

    And a sport-oriented MMA class.

    Make more sense?

    The MMA class doesn't teach you the striking you want?

    Good MT looks just like any good striking system/school/style. Their rule set is a little different so that makes their training a little different from some other standup, but the difference is minimal. Well they do wear groovier clothes...

    So, the answer is no. I mean you could train western boxing to specialize in hand combos and foot/body flow, but why not get a couple years of the several arts you are doing first? For the average person it'd take years just to master one.

    *edit*
    change master to "become proficient."
