I box and also train in bjj. I used to wrestle back in the day so that experience made bjj seem a little easier. Later I plan on doin some Muay Thai, hopefully in Thailand.

Combat Sambo, used to do some boxing but it bored me. Did muay thai and it bored me too. I trained Ju Jutsu and Jiu Jitsu, both good.

Sambo is my love.

Seems to me you hate all sorts of stand-up. Probably because it's harder to spar in a stand-up martial art class, than in a grappling class.
I wish I had a place near me to learn combat Sambo. Yes, just because of Fedor...otherwise I wouldn't give a rat's ass about it, lol.

Good idea. I live in Thailand, and I've seen and talked to loads of people who come here to practice.

The instructors aren't necessarily the best in the world, but the gyms train at least 6 hours a day and often throw in some extra cardio work like a run in the morning. Training 6 hours a day and generally living, eating, breathing and sleeping it will do you a lot of good.

Some gyms will also throw you into a professional fight after a few months as well. Most of the fights are set up for the foreigner to lose (Thai people are nationalist too), but it's good experience.

Plus, you get to be in Thailand.

In the past I did a couple of different styles of karate, aikido (quite seriously) and some boxing. But I am not kidding myself about how useful that would be in MMA or anything like that.

I'm not doing anything at the moment, but I plan to start training with a guy who teaches muay thai and judo. I live in Thailand, which means lots of MT but almost no one to teach BJJ.

I find it easier to box than grapple, although I train bjj more often.
