I'm hopefully going to substitute the Muay Thai with osme kickboxing, and the Judo will have to do for the grappling stuff, in place of the BJJ. Anyone got any ideas on something to replace the Krav Maga training that I'm missing out on?! Before you mention it, there's no Systema local either.
You could buy a couple of combatives manuals for self study and referance while you're searching around.

Judo is good.

Are there any manuals that you or Cross_Trainer could recommend?

I recently bought a Krav Maga one written by David Kahn, but I got put off when he was talking about sensitive strike areas, he said, 'A strike to the nose from the correct angle can be fatal'. Now I'm pretty sure he's referring to that classic fight myth that someones nasal bone can be forced back through their skull, killing them. This has been exposed as bullshit for years now, so it makes me wonder what other crap is in there.

Hmmm...

Fairbairn's WWII combatives--"Defendu"--are still alive and kicking...they were designed to be simple and easily taught to untrained men, so I suppose they would be somewhat easier to learn by book than, say, BJJ. John Ford filmed a combatives instructional film with Fairbairn...if you can find it, I think it has video clips of the techniques he used to compliment the books.

Cheers, I'll have to look them up. I think that a striking art would be much easier for me to learn through books and DVD, even though it would only be the basics. I already have a punchbag and room for shadowboxing, so if you could recommened any boxing or Muay Thai manuals/dvds, I'd be extremely grateful.

USA Boxing has a tape series and manual of boxing out that's fairly decent...Kenny Weldon's DVD's are also pretty good.

Hy All!
Let mi say hello to this community by posting what I'm training. I started with karate(shotokan) at age 3. And than I had many many surgeris. And now I'm training kung-fu for 4 years now with as many as possible cross training. Like Kyokushin, Muay Thai, boxing, and now i want to turn to MMA. I started no-gi BJJ about a half year now. And I will have my first MMA match at oct. 6.
And I'm from Hungary!
