    I'm a little puzzled about your resistance towards muay thai, since lots of good sanshou is like muay thai with throws. Sanshou, being a ruleset rather than a style, teaches kicking that can vary from CMA/TKD/savate style whipping kicks, to kicks basically identical to muay thai, depending on the trainer. What's your training background at the moment?

    I'd say that if you don't have much of a martial arts background right now, and you're mainly into the idea of kickboxing with throws, train in sanshou at the beginning and maybe cross-train in savate later on.

    The best solution is to try everything and see what school you like best. Visit multiple schools. You need to find a school that offers quality teaching and where you get along with the people. The style is secondary.

    I disagree about 63%.

    Getting your desired results come first.

    Most shitty schools have instructors and students who are easy to get along with and are very nice. They can also be excellent instructors they just instruct you to punch air, do forms, train with complete compliance and then reward you for paying your bill with a belt, but impart no fighting skills.

    If you want a colored belt collection or cardio kickboxing take killface's advice. If you want to compete , fight, or exist outside your current comfort zone you may have to deal with assholes.

    First off, what are your training goals?

    Secondly if you want to just be a bit different than everyone else just GET BETTER than them.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Both stiles are great. Though if cross-training is a goal, why not cross-train grappling with striking and become a complete fighter? Cross training striking with striking is less effective. Choose one good school, like the san da and train as much as you can there, if u can only attend one or two classes a week in said school, and you can find the time to cross train, than complete it with savat or what ever.
    Again, both are potentially great!

    what a bizarre reason to choose a martial art style.

    the logical way to go would be to find the best person who trains fighters near you, and train with them.
