Right now Ihave a black belt in tae kwon do, and Iwant to keep training in that until I get my second degree. After that I want to join another style at the same time. I am wondering if you think ju-jitsu would be a good style.

Totally. Any style which interests you is good. Just as long as they don't say that other styles are bad and don't allow people to expand. Those are bad teachers. Get a teacher who has credit and lets you explore your own ideas.

E wing you're at the stage of your martial arts career I will be in in 5 years... when I get my black belt in Tae Kwon Do I hope to stop training in it, and start in Brazillian Jiu Jutsu and Capoeria... I have it all planned out heh

Yes yes yes!!! This is what i have been trying to say to TKD practitioners! You're afighting style would be so well rounded that you'd be very formidable. Awesome kicks and lock to boot!

Have you considered Hapkido?

You'll get most of the techniques you'd pick up in trad JJ and still be following the same ideology

HapKiDo is an ecellent art to start up in especially if u haven't done anything before. But my HapKiDo dojang was leaning towards the kickboxing side of things more than using TKD kicks etc...

Are you supposed to wait until you're a black belt before you cross-train?

combat hapkido has all the things needed, like grappling, ground work, throws, hard strikes,deflecting, evading, joint manipulation, sweeps, pressure points and similar kicking used in tkd.....it uses a circular concept as opposed to the linear one and is most useful outside the dojang.

I don't think there is any point waiting to cross train. If you can handle a lot of punishment by doing lots of martial arts by all means go for it.

I'm training in goju karate, shotokan karate, and wing chun kung fu and yes I can't wait for december to drop goju because that's a little too much.

I am waiting before I start crosstraining though, I would like to be reasnobly proficient at my kicks so I can mainly focus on the grappling, doing both at once especially in my soon to be busy schedule would be less efficient in the long run.
