I train bjj, muay thai, and boxing. I don't train wrestling but I have a very natural ability to wrestle. And yes, I pay for all this shit myself

I used to do Aikido, but not for long and I cant remember much of it as it was years ago. I've also done Taekwondo and Kickboxing. But now I do Shotokan Karate.
At some point in the future, I'd like to do BJJ, to get some ground skills.
I'd love to do MMA but there aren't any classed within 100 miles of where I live.

I practice Hapkido, but no one really considers that a martial art meant for sports, and am beginning to start BJJ. On a side note, are there any MMA fighters that use Hapkido or a similar style as their style?

I tried Hapkido for a few lessons but was put of because there was no sparing. I cant see the point to any martial art if you dont practice the combat. It was a shame as Hapkido seemed to be pretty good. I dont know if that was just the club I went to or not, but no sparing is just stupid.

That does seem pretty stupid. At my studio there is weekly sparing and they hold annual tournaments.

I have a Boxing Background, both as youth and then in he Navy
I also started training Tae Kwon Do while I was in the Navy
Ive had some Jeet Kune Do but very limited
most recently have been training in type of freestyle mma system where we train a little bit of everything from thai boxing to hybrid grappling which encompasses a cross between jui jitsu and wrestling.

The grappling is kindda interesting but far from my strong suit, in fact I kindda suck at it. But a 6'5" 300+ lb man that can kick ya in the head kindda gets peoples attention. LOL

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.
Harder to spar in stand up then grappling? Its easier to throw a punch then throw someone.

Both sides aren't easy and are useful for certain things like i do Judo although if i saw an opening in hes defence(ie. boxing defence position) i wouldn't be narrow minded and go for the throw i would try to get him with a punch to the open area.

But just to stay on topic as i said before i do Judo and have for quite a while and i have had some martial arts background with other styles aswell including Karate, Boxing, BJJ and Muay Thai but i plan to start another martial art soon probably a style of Karate.
