    Have you thought about it from this angle: once you finish school (3.5 years from now?) and have more free time...what then?

    If you love both equally, stick with the one that works best with your school schedule (since that is priority #1), and then pick the other back up again after school is done.

    Which would be harder for you to re-acquire? My noobish opinion is that Judo would be much harder to pick up than boxing after your studies. So keep doing Judo (that's what I did throughout school) and when you've graduated, your Judo will be strong and you can pick up where you left off with boxing.

    Well you have definitely got yourself involved into two really solid arts, the question is which one do you enjoy the most?
    Basically, the strikers on this site are going to advise you towards boxing and the grapplers are going to advise you towards Judo.
    If you are using this to maintain your physical fitness, then I too would advise you to keep on boxing simply because you can box 3 days a week whereas you can only practice Judo 1 day.

    I'd agree with the sentiment that you shouldn't trade 4 days of training for 1 day, but it really comes down to what you personally enjoy.

    Typical martial artist time spent training in lifetime, let's say 30-40 years. time spent actually needing martial arts skills outside of martial arts? I'm guessing this figure is much, much lower, probably by an order of magnitude.

    This being said, judo probably gives you more useful LIFE skills than boxing strictly with regard to how to fall safely.

    I agree with the consensus. Stick with Judo!

    It takes a very long time to reach even a basic level of proficiency in Judo only practicing once a week.

    However, which one do you enjoy more, because that's critical no point dropping boxing and then realising a few months later you're not really passionate about Judo or vice versa.

    If dropping boxing doesn't allow you to train Judo at least twice a week and you don't enjoy Judo more than boxing than I would say drop the Judo.

    I'd stick with judo. I'm a pretty small guy and I've had a lot better luck throwing bigger guys than I have punching them. Also, judo is a lot easier on the face and that is kind of important to some men and most women.

    Jim_Jude is trolling, he doesn't really believe that.

    Stick with boxing, 4 days workout to 1 with half the cost is easily the better option.

    Though Personally I preferr the Grappling arts(Bjj) If I was you, I would choose Boxing. It is both cheaper and because it is 3 times a week you might get better benifits fitness wise. That being said if your passion is Judo than stick with it. Good luck in decision.

    Buddy system, Tasers, rape whistle, mace for self defense.

    Judo for it's many other benefits.

    I haven't been in a bunch of street fights but I have fallen off of stuff.

    Breakfalls help out alot with that type of self defense.
