Unknown Fighting Disciplines

anyone know any unusual fighting styles besides the occasional BJJ, Judo, Kickboxing, and muay thai fighting disciplines that could possibly be in MMA?

some unknown styles i know are hapkido, krav maga, and capoeira.

It's only been used once in MMA, so I consider it an "unusual" style.

No problem bud, we're all human.

Are there any crazy striking martial arts that are rare? MMA seems to have highlighted the best combat arts (muay thai and jiu jitsu for example) and weeded out the combat arts that are not so practical (TKD anyone?).

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH if you teach boxing along with TKD, and concentrate on the more efficient, practical techniques, TKD lends itself very well to the standup striking aspect of MMA.
