    hard to say... what are you good at? it's better to be great at 1 thing and OK at everything else, then to be mediocre at everything. i guess i'm saying it depends what you're naturally talented with. i dont know shit about san shou.... kickboxing... whether is western or muay thai is great. personally i have always found it a bit difficult to train in muay thai b/c it's so easy to get injured. good luck.

    You should comcentrate on MT and do kickboxing for teh kicks and Sanshou for the transition/takedowns.
     
  5. Depends on how you want to fight. Do you want to be a stand up guy or a ground guy? Ground guys, san shou is very good. Stand up knockout guys, a mix of kickboxing and muay thai. Also, if you can, throw boxing in there.
