    Just go inside a good MMA gym that propose learning courses for the differents sports if the goal is MMA competition.
    Focus on boxing and wrestling first, then to thai and JJB.

      Judo won't be that useful because you don't wear gis in MMA.

      My intention was for having the basis of combat not mma competion, and i know some old dude that practices the no gi stuff plus the old techniques befoer they putted some dumb rules.
      the intention was to test what i learnt in a mma competion

        Boxing and wrestling. Judo is also actually very underrated and one if not THE sport that is 10x more efficient in the street compared to tatami, especially if you have passable chin but still get the basis of wrestling first. And you will test your chin during boxing hard sparring. Don't be a retard tho and remember that regarding CTE, damage is cumulative exponential. Getting wobbled by heavyweights is fine for a moment in regard to longevity but don't take hard shots 5 years from now.

      There are lots of no-gi Judo techniques that work in any situation. They're comparatively easy to learn and you can master them in a few months

    I’m thinking about learning kendo because larping as a samurai and hitting people with a stick sounds cool and swordfighting is a useless but neat skill.
    Follow your dreams op.

        Will keep lifting I guess. I mostly use a routine my old boxing coach gave me with some added isolation exercises for calves, abbs, forearms and chest. Since the whole thing is already focused on straightening my arms, back, shoulders and legs I figure it’ll be enough for kendo.
        For cardio I will start rooning with a friend of mine and maybe take up swimming next year.

          I am not a massive gay, so I'll learn the one actually useful in the streets (of the Spanish golden age, circa 1632).

        Tbh I would like to learn how to use a meteor hammer or a kusarigama, but it’s not like I can find a teacher right around the corner and I have serious doubts whether such impractical weapons were even actually used in real combat at some point.

    I'm not against martial arts, but in all said and done knowing how to use a gun is most effective (regardless of where in the world you live). I'd do martial arts 2-3 times a week and go to the gun rage 2x a month if i were in your shoes

    Is 2 days for judo and 2 days for Muay thai enough to learn at a decent pace for each? 1 and a half-2 hours per class
