I have a laundry list of things I'd like to spend time learning, but either haven't had time/opportunity, or have only had time for a little bit and want more.  

Here's my current list:
  • love to spend more time in Judo
  • took one Sumo lesson, dying for more
  • Sayoc Kali
  • Sambo
  • La Canne et Baton
  • say what you will, but I really enjoyed my time in Krav Maga (not KMWW)
  • took one Shuai Jiao lesson, loved it
  • Wing Chun
  • wrestling
Wow, mine is mostly clinch.  Huh.

I also have a list of "related" things I want to train:
  • Parkour (I'm just starting and I love it)
  • "stunt" driving
And frankly, I have tons of unrelated things I'd like to learn or train, but I'll leave that for another time.

What's your list?

Would have said Olympic Weightlifting, but I found a great gym/coach a few months ago and am loving it.

As for Machida Karate, do you mean what Lyoto does (which is heavily supplemented by crosstraining in BJJ, Wrestling, and Kickboxing gyms) or do you mean doing katas and one-step sparring with his father?

Parkour - goes in nicely with the marathon running I'm doing
Weightlifting - kettlebells, barbells, dumbells, whatever - I need to get stronger
Swimming - I hate water, but I already run and bike, so might as well get the third part for a triathlon
Rock Climbing - good functional strength training
Boxing - I've got long arms, might as well make the most of it
Enshin Karate (or anything related) - Integrating Judo throws with Kyokushin style striking seems perfect
Sanshou/Sanda - integrating throws with Muay Thai also seems perfect
Capoeira - good for physical conditioning, and some aspects would come in handy in a fight too
Freestyle Wrestling - no brainer, need the takedowns
Schwingen - it's a belt wrestling style and I'm part Swiss, might as well
Kali/Arnis/Eskrima & Dog Brothers - no brainer for MMA style stick fighting
Krabi Krabong - on the surface it looks like it'd be a good transition between stick fighting and Muay Thai style striking

Most of this stuff is available locally, and I've even got several choices. It's just about the money.

Right now I'm not training anything, due to injury, but otherwise it would be BJJ, Judo and Hapkido.

Body building, especially bench presses and pec flies. I'll be swelling. No one will f*** with me on any beach. I won't need to train any martial arts (except for spiritual purposes, of course).

Why is savate on most people's list? LOL


Mine:

Savate(the complete art including lutte parisienne, le canne et baton, le couteau, etc)

Krav Maga(not the mcdojo variety)

Combat Sambo

Systema(can't help but be curious)


I also agree that physical fitness arts/skills should go hand-in-hand with defensive training. For me it would be parkour/bodyweight conditioning, swimming and minimalist running.

Savate does kicking with shoes on.

Find a good savateur and go spar with him. You'll quickly find out.

That's not a useful answer at all. You can say find a good _________ and go spar with him. You'll quickly find out.

I disagree. I could say that about Aikido, for example, and you would be hard pressed, if not find it impossible, to find a practitioner good enough to pull anything off in sparring. As a matter of fact, I think that would be true of a LOT of styles.

Savate has a unique approach to distancing, rhythm, angling, and timing. It is a highly deceptive striking art that still delivers tremendous power mixed with unpredictable precision.

Spar with a savateur and you will quickly discover their signature range and rhythms are unique and useful. :)

Oh, and I did my first Hojojutsu seminar this weekend. That was an interesting experience! I'd never trained Hojo before.

That's a straw man. You could say that about Muay Thai, BJJ, freestyle wrestling, folkstyle wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling, Sambo, Judo, Boxing, Kyokushin, Enshin, and so on. What makes Savate worth training? Don't tell me to go find a good Savateur, there isn't even any Savateur within 200 miles of me, let alone a good one.

jkd/silat would be near the top on the list of a LOT of styles
