As in the subject. Do you mix muay thai, bjj, etc, into MMA or you train any discipline differently (as GSP does i.e)?
Thanks for your feed back.

 I think the answer is both. There is a time for the learning and isolation of specific skills of mma, that come from seperate arts, but the sucess of the application of these techniques will need to be integrated into training the actual sport (sport-specific) to be successful.

It's best to train them seperate at first. And then when you mix them it feels more natural as opposed to just all at once. That's my opinion anyways Phone Post

i treat mma like a separate style all together. working on everything else independently gives me more depth to pull from towards everything else.

and sometimes it feels good fighting without going to the ground.

 You should have one core art and integrate into that whatever you need.   Otherwise you might have contradictory mechanics, stances, etc. by stuidying separate arts and trying to make them work together.

Technique improves in isolation. Your boxing gets better by boxing. Your wrestling gets better by wrestling. You can even do it on the Micro level such as training only the jab or only training the RNC. After isolation training then you integrate.

Endurance is key. Rebel Race 15k military run looks hardcore. My friends and I started training for it.

Training separately allows you more time to improve each area separately. The way I have always trained is you have bjj, boxing, wrestling, and muay Thai. Then you would have an mma class where you work on mma specific drills/training ( ground and pound, cage tactics, ect) and mma sparring to combine all your skills. I think this is the best way to improve all of your skills and mold them into one. This is how almost all the top pro fighters train. Phone Post

I work everything individually, and then together to combine movements. For me it comes down to who can teach me the move perfectly and mechanically. I am blessed to live in South East MI and have the ability to travel to Chicago, Toronto, Ohio, Indiana, and of course in Detroit to learn.

Due to my access to good Kyokushin, good Shooto, decent Muay Thai, great BJJ, great wrestling, AMAZING Boxing, ect, ect, I do not see why I would not train individually. I then can go to Coopers MMA, Carlos Gracie Fight Team, Hammer House, or some such notable MMA gym in the area to work it all together.

But it depends on the situation. I would not if I did not have such good individual resources.

I would point out that if your going to train the individual sports make sure you train it with MMA in mind, you dont want to develop some of the bad habits that arent bad habits in those respective sports.

Hey if you are interessed, there is a great special week ( all day, 10h-21h) of intensive training in all kinds of martial arts : all kinds of boxing, mma, wrestling etc.and physical conditioning.
It's directed by a few world champions so it would be a good chance to start off your career with correct basics.
Plus since it's abroad, it would be a great vacation.
Email them at panza.gym@sfr.fr or panzagym@free.fr for more info!
It's also possible to sleep there so don't hesitate to inform yourself!
