Question need better stand up

hey guys i currently train bjj and judo however my stand up game is visually non-existant so i was wondering whether you would recommend to train muay thai or boxing? Im not training for mma i train more just for myself because i enjoy it and it helps me keep fit and a bit for self defence but thats not my main reason so i was wondering which one you guys would recommend im looking for something that will really improve my foot work, really improve my defence, improve my speed, agility and strength. I know that muay thai has a much larger arsenal of attacks where as boxing only uses punches so which one would you guys recommend? What are the adv and disadv of each? And which one will go best with the styles i already do?

If you have any good JKD/Fillipino schools in your area check them out. It is full of nasty tricks and is just as relentless as Muay Thai. I say this because if you aren't doing mma, you don't have to worry about training illegal moves.

JKD and the Fillipino arts blend seemlessly with Jitsu/Judo. Kicking striking trapping grappling, all ranges covered. A good JKD instructor is probably going to have plenty of years experience in jujitsu, boxing and kickboxing.

Look for people who trained with Dan Inosanto, Larry Hartsell, and Paul Vunak, or one of their top students. Larry Hartsell(rest in peace) especially developed great dynamic entries for throws and takedowns thanks to his jitsu/judo base.
