New to mma! Questions

Alright people, Ive done a bit of boxing training before and am going to start doing a bit of bjj and mma but just wondering if it would be good to continue boxing and do bjj and mma or to start kickboxing or muay Thai ? Cheers

Whatever you feel comfortable with. There is no "best" dicipline or anything so if you like boxing better then Muay Thai or vice versa then stick with that.

Personally I would say Muay Thai, BJJ and wrestling would make ME the most well rounded but it is all about you.

It really depends on you. For sure you need to know something about every MMA element, but if you feel comfortable with kick-boxing and bjj, keep it and focus on it.

If your boxing is real real good i would just train that and bjj.
