Begining MMA Training

Me and my brother are begining our MMA training. I've love martial arts ever since I was 5 and watched chinese kung fu movies with my dad. As I got older I got more into fighting sports, Boxing, Kickboxing, MMA. Me and my brother are learning at a local MMA gym, taking Muay Thai and Jujitsu, and even some boxing training. I'd also like to take a little Aikido.

So far my strength is in grappling but I dont want to make that the only way I can win a match. So I want to eliminate any weakness I have

I believe a great blend of martial arts would be Muay Thai for striking. Aikido for turning an opponents attack into a lock, Jujitsu for grappling, Boxing for evasion, and I'd like to study Bruce Lee's philosophy of Jeet Kune do.

I'd like to hear what other people think of this, any advice and so forth.

Sounds good. I took Aikido, and it's pretty fun.

5 years. I took it along with Tae Kwon Do. And before that I took Karate. Now I do Muay Thai, and am starting BJJ soon. And I wrestle in school.

Yeah Jeet Kune Do is meant to be great. Merges all the most useful parts of Kung Fu and puts them in to one, I think?

But yes, I've been looking to study it too but I cannot find any schools near where I live that teach it

i'll be learning the philosphy thorugh books.

also i made a mistake, i'm learning BJJ not japanese jujitsu. ^^

shogun how long would i need to take aikido to have a good grasp of turning attacks into locks or grappling possitions.

Bruce Lee is the best

Just so you know Bruce Lee is the greatest fighter of all time and know what I am talking about I have been studying about him and if you do the same I am sure there will be no doubt about it in your minds either
