    It depends on your style of fighting. It's all about what you're comfortable with.

    Most would say Muay Thai and Boxing because it covers fairly practical kicking and punching and great experience in the clinch.

    However there are plenty of standup martial arts out there, if you can adapt them to what you feel is practical, they're gonna help, trust me.

    it would depend on your preference. You'll get many different answers. Personally, I'd go for Muay Thai and JKD

    usually boxing and MT, but it depends on your level of experience with another art...if you've studied something else and it works for you, no reason to throw it out. Also, it depends on how fast you learn, your body make up (how strong you are, how fast you are, level of conditioning, etc.)

    things also depend on ur body type. short stalky guys are no likely to throw highkicks. even if they like to they wud not be as efficient against a talleropponent. tall guys have better use of hick kicks imo. i wud like to see kyokushin karate and burmese traditional boxing.

    Depends on what you are planning on doing, if you're going to be doing MMA, boxing and MT might not be enough. I've noticed that when I spar MMA rules there's a lot more things to think about that you just don't need to worry about in MT.

    However if you're doing pure stand up I think MT and boxing would be a great mix
