    Yeah, unfortunately the average newbie isn't Anderson Silva. It's likely the only person's distance and timing you'll be throwing off is your own.

    Like I said, if it were easy then everyone would do it. There's a possibility you can, there's a 99% probability that you can't though.

    How about you stop looking for gimmicks and actually train like your coach knows what the **** he's talking about? If the techniques worked within the context of muay thai, then it's highly likely that they're already in there. Such is the nature of combat sports.

    Agreed. Knowing how to fight from the other lead is usefull if you happen to end up there by accident. This can happen pretty easily if you put your foot straight down after landind a rear leg roundhouse. If you really want to try throwing the guy off w/o confusing youself, just switch leads for an entire round. You might gain a small advantage without worrying about switching back and forth under pressure.

Seeing as you would spar in both using tatics and techniques from the stance that they use, and thus would know how to apply the techniques when you're fighting. You could change stance after a knee or kick and start using the other style. This should confuse the opponent and let you perhaps get a few strikes in. Those are my thoughts. Is there anyone who has done this before and been successful?
    If you really want to confuse your opponent, try shitting yourself and then raving like a lunatic. Trust me, no one will come near you after you use this technique. Not even your own family.

    "If the techniques worked within the context of muay thai, then it's highly likely that they're already in there. Such is the nature of combat sports."

    Throws and takedowns work in the context of BJJ yet that doesn't mean that you will learn them to the stanard of Judo or Wrestling. Just because something works in a certain rule set doesn't mean it will praticed by people who follow that rule set or do it to a standard of another group that puts more emphasis on it eg: the spinning hook kick works well in the context of Muay Thai but how often does an average Muay Thai school pratice that technique compared to an average Kyokushin school?

    "How about you stop looking for gimmicks and actually train like your coach knows what the **** he's talking about?"

    I was not looking for a gimmick I was merely asking a question about something that seemed like it may work. Also I DO train like my coach knows his stuff, because he does.

    Gimmick: A device employed to cheat, deceive, or trick, especially a mechanism for the secret and dishonest control of gambling apparatus.

    You were trying to come up with a means by which to confuse or trick an opponent. That's a gimmick.

    "The question, everyone is dancing around is, how long you have trained your arts?"

    Judo: 1 year until my teacher stopped teaching and then I didnt do it for 3 years then I did 2 years later so 3 years.

    BJJ: 4 going on 5 years

    Wrestling: 1 year until work got in the way (freestyle) then 1 year with a differnet coach (greco)

    Sambo: about 3 months just started and loving it

    Kyokushin: about 3 months though work is getting the way

    Boxing MMA and Muay Thai: I have done on and off all the time I have been doing bjj when i can make class (the bjj class covers the cost for all of them)

    All up I have been training realistic martial arts 6 years approx

    Before that I did 4 years of Ninja and before that i did Kickboxing and boxing (which doesnt count because I was only 12 or so)

    (edited for mistakes its 5 15 am here and i cant type properly)
