TKD + Muay Thai + Boxing = Perfect Combination

Nowadays boxing and Muay Thai are the standard striking arts taught in any MMA gym. However, a lot of people underestimate the effectiveness of other striking arts when used in combination with the standard Muay Thai and boxing arts. For example, Anderson Silva has an extensive background in TKD, which I believe has greatly contributed to his kicking technique and his uniquely graceful style. If you want to see Silva using some classic TKD kicks check out his fight with Lee Murray. Another top striker with extensive TKD training is Cung Le. Consequently, I think cross training in TKD could help many fighters improve their striking.

Lol, the two Rich Franklin fights are what made people call him a Muay Thai master.

TKD and Karate are absolutely the best base for martial arts as a child. They teach discipline, technique, proper kicks and have loads of children classes available throughout the U.S. They may not be the most effective TMA's but they build a solid foundation on which to build later on in life.

For full contact sparring (when you get older) Muay Thai and Boxing is a must.

I think that could help but I think you would be better off doing muay thai + boxing + grappling instead.

Anderson isn't the best Muay Thai practitioner but it seemed that way after exposing Franklin's terrible clinch defense.

Lately, Anderson has been leaning more and more to his boxing.

i think: if you got Muay Thai as your main base, then you should go to fine tune your boxing.. Then if you got the time and opportunity, find a good kicking art to teach you some strange/fancy kicks that goes well with your more normal kicks from MT.. This will become the best and most complete striking base..

IMHO

I agree with this. I think cross training in a kicking art such as TKD will add a unique edge to your striking once you've got the basics of Muay Thai and Boxing.
