I know several people who practice more than one art without a problem.

The trick is to become competent in one art first.

Firstly, the best self defense is your awareness followed by your sprinting skill. If you are not in the path of danger you cannot be hurt. Usually a little common sense (which is infact very rare) will go a long way. Keep an eye out around you and always scan your surroundings for people who look like they are suspicious. Usually there will be an indication that a criminal attack is about to occur a short time before it does. This is enough time to high-tail it.

NEVER try to fight multiple opponents, it is akin to hitting your head against a brick wall. Create an opening to safety and run like hell. If you have to fight, KO your opponent in 3 moves or less then make a quick get-away.

If your friend gets stuck, drag her away from danger as quickly as possible. Yell at her to run, grab her and run like hell.

[QUOTE]Originally posted by White Lotus:
Last thing you want to do is go on ground? Judo throw. Hurts. Much. Let's say there are 3 attackers, you are alone.. First one comes, kick him to groin area and throw one of his friends, and if the throwed guy isnt down yet, kick him to face and finish the guy you kciked to groin area. 1 guy left. If he dont have weapon he should be easy. Judo throw, then go to ground fight, broke his elbow, then... walk off/call police... Also, Pepper spray or knife would be nice, I always keep my knife with me.[/QUOTE]

If you are on the ground you are immobilised and one of the guy-who-you're-rolling-around-with's friends can easily boot you in the head. Throwing to the ground is good and if you are taken to the ground, you need to know what to do while you're there but in a multiple attacker scenario or in a pub where the floor is covered in smashed glass, you don't want to go to the ground.

The nature of grappling is such that you can more easily beat someone bigger and stronger than you as long as they aren't as skilled. (Rather than striking where strength makes more of a difference).

I study both TKD and Jujutsu and I have no problem learning both. I started TKD 15 years ago and Jujutsu recently, so I do think it's best to start off with a couple of years of one and then add on another MA.

Here's the only self defence you need:
Kick to testicles
Knee to testicles
Grab and squeeze/twist testicles etc
eye gauge
slap both ears simultaneously
fish hook mouth
kicks hard to shin/knee etc
There you go 7 highly effective self defence techniques. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]
