Wow, this is tacky, I'm posting the first reply on my own thread.

Anyway, I personally suggest Daito Ryu AikiJujutsu. It's the martial art that most of Aikido is derived from, but it emphasizes the joint locks and works really well for MMA.

Sambo is a Russian Style of grappling that was created in the early 1900's as an off-shoot of Judo, infused with other wrestern styles of grappling/wrestling. It came into the forefront of the Russian military's hand-to-hand training in the 1920's. It is now practiced in the former Soviet states in 3 forms: Sport, Defense and Combat.

Sambo is a grappling style that empasizes technical throws much like Judo, but looks to finish the fights/matches through the use of submission holds. Sambo is known for its leglocks, you can click here to see what I'm talking about.

Coincidentally, Sambo has seen a lot of renewed interest mainly due to Fedor Emelianenko, the current Pride HW champ. You can check out Wkipedia on some of the more specific detail here.

Yeah, I've heard that Tang Soo Do (sp?) is a little bit more combat practical that tkd, but I don't think that highly of tkd.

Thanks for the stuff on Sambo, ong. (I love abbreviating names)

Tang so do is a pure Korean martial art which was oppressed when Japan controlled Korea. During this period Tang so do was made illegal in korea and anyone who practiced it could be put to death.

When the Japanese left the koreans created a new martial art called Tae Kwon Do which has is a mix of tang so do and karate.
