Question about styles
I want to join a couple of martial arts clubs in my area, but I'm not sure which styles to pick. The clubs I am interested in are a Judo club, a BJJ club, a boxing club, a Kyokushin Karate club and a Muay Thai club. Ideally I would like to take up BJJ and Muay Thai, but the two train on the same days.
I was thinking of either going with the BJJ and boxing, or the Judo and Thai boxing so as to develop skills in both grappling and throwing. The whole Japan worship thing that goes on in Japanese martial arts doesn't appeal to me so much, but ultimately all I care about is becoming an effective fighter. Which of these styles would you recommend I take up in order to achieve that goal as quickly as possible? I would like to train twice a week in each of the styles I do, so choosing more than two isn't really an option.
Edit: Doing BJJ and Kyokushin is also a possibility. Too many choices!
