splitting the training
As a person who doesn't drive, I'm forced to go for convenience in training and to make the most of what I have.
I can't get to the closest MMA club on a regular basis but I have BJJ and Boxing classes available.
How much benefit do you think it is to train the two seperately and use your own methods to link them for MMA?
Do the top guys split their training still, or is it all done together?
I guess it was a crappy subject? ttt!!

splittin training works thats what i do just split it for now for a while then go the the mma class when you can and see how well you can blent to 2 together
if you really love fighting you can never really lose.
personally, i usually just do mma, and thai boxing lessons when i have the chance, if i had the time and could be assed i would do boxing and bjj.
From what i have seen and heard and experienced straight punching and awsome ground work is what you need to be a good fighter. so yeah definately go boxing and bjj and then throw it all together in the mma lessons!! are you too young to drive then?
Personally i just train mma, and thai boxing when i have the chance! however i would definately go to bjj and boxing classes if i had the time, money and could actually be assed! the best fighters out there are good with there hands(clean straight punches) or either have good ground work, to have both at a high standard would make you a dangerous fighter!!

Well... IMO it's a little like buying the front half of a car from one place, and the back from somewhere else and then trying to weld them together yourself.
The end result depends on how good you are at welding, and is probably better than nothing, but is unlikely to work as well as getting the whole thing put together in a single package.
Even if you include wrestling in your mix - there's still more to MMA than boxing plus wrestling plus BJJ.
