    I proclaim this only because I will be doing some sort of combat sport soon, though I don't know what and I have a few choices.

    IBBJJ+MT :o

    I'm a big fan of BJJ but it really depends on what you like. striking? grappling? throws?

    Well, it's curious...part of me wants to just go down to the boxing gym and have at it. However, there is also a Jeet Kun Do school near me, and a vale tudo group that works out of the local krav maga center.

    Background always works: I'm a personal trainer, have been for 6 years, so I know all about sticking with something. I guess I'm trying to get a good "bang for my buck". :o :dunno:

    If you like striking, boxing is very good. So is Muay Thai. Both are fairly easy to pick up and jump right into.

    I used to really love boxing but now I am really loving grappling as well. Any kind is good whether it's BJJ, Sambo, Judo, etc. JKD and KM will teach you some good street defense. But if you want to spar MT or kickboxing schools are more likely to do that

    You'd be surprised that it's hard to find MT schools in Austin.

    At least I've had a bit of trouble. :o

    I'd recommend off the top of my head:

    K.O. Sports Gym - the owner rodney is a MT badass
    my gym, Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Austin: our MT guy Randy Vera is a badass, also a very nice and humble dude

    Very :cool:

    Good to see a fellow Austinite who knows where I should be looking. :)

    Which begs the question, what type of feels are you currently paying for your training?
