126 lb body weight, 300lb bench press, cross country runner..what technique to learn?

I've developed myself into a 126lb body weight, 290 lb bench pressing decent cross country runner/sprinter. I got a little bit of a grappling and wrestling background from high school.

I'm thinking about getting into mma. Which standup art is right for me?

dude i dont know if thats possible.

im 160ish and im very strong for my size and 300lbs bench? no way, not even close. but if you are that good i also fail to see why you would even need advice from an online forum? i mean someone that can reach such feats i doubt could receive any help from us.

Haha so just learn the styles that I like? I guess it is that simple. Which arts do you suggest for wanting to learn how to do spinning jump kicks and acrobatic stuff like that?

To the 160lb guy - I think it's pretty possible. Mostly, cause i've done it. As for you, did you know that the record for the 160lb weight is 485? Yikes!
Here's the link to the records - http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/rec...aw-bench-press

Hey Smash, the best way to know what to learn is to keep posting your "stats" on internet forums and then you could take how impressed we all are, bottle it up, drink it and BAM! Ultimate technique.

Lets get this straight.. you are 126lbs.... can bench 300lbs and you are a cross country runner????

Unless you were sent back in time to kill John Connor, I really find that hard to believe.

Guys, I only came on here to get some advice. I know very little about this sport and am interested in it. I know that I'm a very good athlete compared to the athletes that I'm around everyday, but I posted my athletic accomplishments on here 'cause I wanted an honest assessment of how my fitness compared to good/elite level fighters. I also wanted to find out which martial arts would make use of my fitness the most.

As you can see in the link that I provided, my strength level is quite a ways away from the top guys in weight lifting. So, maybe that's why I have room in my body for some running fitness.

Now phew!, let's lighten up a lil bit haha. Can anyone tell me about some practical martial arts to learn that involve cool kicks and jumps? as well as any experiences?

if you want a standup art with "cool" kicks and jumps, i woudlnt recommend mma to you..go join kung fu.
