If you want to do two out of all those, I'd probably dump the TJJ and go for judo and kickboxing.

you sound like the confident one to me :-p

look, i seriously doubt we will ever meet for any type of competition, but just to let you know, i hae you beat in the TJJ department, been there done it, taught it, ridiculed it, love it :-O and on the competing experience side of it, unless you hold some karate medals/trophies.

but in all seriousness, its all banter

I would reccomend Wing Chun, if there is a club near you.

I am currently studying Wado-Ryu Karate + Wing Chun, and I am going to start Ju Jitsu classes soon.

Your Ju Jitsu Training, from what I have seen, will come in handy when you get onto the locks, throws incorporated in Wing Chun.

I studied Wado Ryu under Jon Wicks.
I can't believe people still practice karate and kung fu. It's like the mixed martial arts revolution never happened. What a waste of people's time and efforts. It's been twenty years since mixed martial arts was brought to the mainstream audience, and grapplers easily dominated.

True, its not something you'd wanna use in MMA but not everybody takes up MA for self defence or MMA ;-)

Ok, about the statement that somebody cant believe ppl still study karate or kung fu...MMA is a truly well rounded sport or concept...but it is still trained for, and used as a SPORT. Rules and regulations which can be taked advantage of on the street, but not trained for in teh MMA gym. And while some styles of traditional MA are crap...if one trains in Krav Maga, or a survivalist style of kung fu (i.e. Fu Jow Pai) etc... then they can be a still very effective streetfighter, ready to use and defend "dirty" techniques. How you train is how you fight. Helio Gracie said himself that Gracie JJ is the self defense style he made and his sons know...Brazilian JJ is merely the sport that everybody else does.

True... and im not trying to deny the fact that an MMA fighter can knock out or submit someone on the street...but you have to remember that the better styles of kung fu (wing chun, hung gar, fu jow) PRIMARILY target areas like the eyes throat and groin...all the things an mma guy isnt prepared to defend...so it can still be effective if used correctly
