Venom has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Kenpo is American version of Karate. Jiu-Jitsu makes up a lot of modern-day Mixed Martial Arts but you still need to learn other styles to be very successful.

persoanly I'd avoid TKD.. Look for Tang Soo Do.. Lesser know but more effective. as it is not watered down so much. Though in TKD defense it is great for learning proper form and flexibility.. if you add it to other styles it then can be highly efective.. as for judo.. I love it wish I spent more time in it when I was younger.. I left it as only a yellow belt but the beasic I learned in Judo helped me in every art form I took since.. espically my grappling skills.

Thanks
#4: Modern Arnis is a Fillipino martial art, earmarked by it's application of empty-hand theories toward weapons. Admittedly, I may be confusing that part with Kali/Escrima. I've always wanted to take that because of my ethnicity, but also for the fact that general stick fighting is one of the most applicable self-defense knowledges. Since most of the weapon fighting theory follows a philosophy of "defanging the snake" (disarming your opponent through the direct damage and attack to one's weapon arm), the empty-hand application is earmarked by defensive styles that directly attack an opponent's limbs by striking them directly in the joints, soft tissue or nerve centers as you're being attacked. Very vicious stuff.

The real draw of Arnis is its single-stick fighting theory and techniques. Not only are direct attacks and defenses taught, but also grapples, throws, joint locks and chokes that can be applied with the stick. That is where it get's real brutal.

I couldn't find much on the first style listed, but if I'm going off of the rough translation, it is probably more similar to the second syle listed than to merit too much differentiation in real-life application. According to this site here, "The Danzan-Ryu is a synthesis of the best techniques of the ancient jujitsu schools (Yoshin, Kosogabe, Shibukawa-Ryu, Yoshin-Ryu, Namba-Shoshin-Ryu), Okinawan Karate, Chinese Kung-Fu, Hawaiian Lua, Filipino knife fighting, and traditional Japanese restorative massage and healing techniques. It was developed by Professor Henry S. Okazaki whose school, the Kodenkan, was headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii." Sounds like a centered amalgamation of older Jujitsu styles with other arts thrown in to compliment the grappling with striking.

TKD and Tai Chi Chu'an are more "traditional" martial arts and information is readily available on both. Even though the term TMA has become a bit taboo with MMA fans/practitioners, if you have never studied any sort of Martial Art before, you will definitely benefit. A large part of Martial Arts that is largely neglected and ignored by many current practitioners is the philosophical aspect. Many times, a sound mind will help you prevail through times of physical danger with greater success than pure physical skill or prowess. It doesn't matter if you're a badass if you keep on getting into situation where you need to prove it. Eventually you will get beat up, or worse.

I hope that helps.

Dont discount Arnis!

Arnis schools (or any filipino knife styles) are hard to find, and i dont think u should ignore it!

Arnis schools generally practice both Stand up (boxing) and grappling!
Although they are mostly centered around knife fighting (probably the best knife fighting style on the planet)

However my advice is to try out all of them and see which is best for u.

Can you use pressure points in the UFC? I know joint manipulation is aloud, that's just arm- and kneebars. If someone knew pressure points that would be interesting to see in the octagon? I agree with the Trainer, try them all out and see which one you like the best.

Small joint manipulation is not allowed.
I hate that, because UFC is drifting more and more away from a competition to an entertainment. Small joint manipulation is a key in street fighting.

I see where you're coming from, but by prohibiting small joint manipulation you lessen the possibility of injury in an already intense combat sport. It's the same reason why they don't practice it during training for the majority of the grappling styles, but definitely note it for self-defense situations.

However, I don't completely agree that it takes away from the competitive aspect of MMA as a whole.

I like that you can't use small joint manipulation, that prevents injuries and allows the fight to be more explosive and leaves the fights to be a fast pace atmosphere.
