I was just curious how many of the Karateka here cross train with other arts? If so, what do you cross train with - and why? Only curious - happy to see all replies and reasons.

After doing Ed Parker American Kenpo for a while, I have been doing BJJ for a little over 2 years now.

I'm gonna respond under the assumption that maybe you are not the troll you clearly are.

I have done some crosstraining in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, as well as a bit of informal Judo training with my Goju teacher who also teaches Kodokan Judo. Before you say "d00d wuz it liek, ALIVE training" Yes, I have done a bit of live grappling, though admittedly i'm not good at it.

BTW...you don't know a thing about Karate sparring, judging from your website all you've been exposed to is mcdojo sparring.

You seem to have some very set opinions already about TMA, so may I suggest you come out with your agenda instead of pretending neutrality and some kind of feigned "interest" in other people's training?

Or better yet, perhaps you could simply go away, and talk to like minded people instead of trying to bait people on forums whose arts you clearly have no respect for.

There are subforums on here for your kind of training, maybe you should hit those up.

I think that was a little harsh... Hell maybe he was just curious.

The site is a little anti-traditional but that doesnt mean he/she is.

Dont judge a book by its cover or whatever else you want to say.

Idk... haha i dont cross train though

Hey maybe you're right and he'll come back here and we'll have a lively and educational debate about training methods....but if previous experience is any indicator that ain't the direction things are headed.

Who knows though maybe I was too harsh, time will tell;)

Motobuha Shito Ryu Karatedo - which, being Okinawan Karate, basically is a grappling art. But I also do Aikido, Judo and Jujutsu.

every style today is a product of crosstraining at some point in the past. just using the same name over centuries does not make it static. we only each see the current snapshot of whats in the name, but things always change...always.

Oh, I thought he meant boxers and grapplers cross training in karate to make their arts more effective.
