My opinion is take muay thai.. Im gonna learn it now and incorporate it with my wrestling and basically, grappling(Judo,Jujitsu,etc.)..

I took taekwondo.. I learned the principles but not all those spinning kicks..

Yes, take Muay Thai - if you are like me, you'll never be able to memorize all the Katas required by all other Martial Arts! haha

Dont forget to check out some other posts in this forum, regarding training in Muay Thai, glove selection and other related stuff.
There is a lot of great information in this Forum that can help you choose the right training camp, and steer clear from training-related injuries!

Point of fact, Bruce Lee trained for a period of roughtly three years under Yip Man. He may have trained beside Cheung or a few guys named after the sounds that pots make when you toss them down the stairs.....but his instructor was grand master Yip Man!.

Man, all the history lessons I am giving, ninjitsu now Wing Chun...what is next :wink:

My friend Rahsun is a 3rd Degree Black Belt under Master Cheung, who has tought Bruce Lee since Bruce Lee was a teenager. I might have something misunderstood, but I am almost positive on this matter.

Bruce Lee def trained under Yip-man for 2 atleast years (his first formal training), you can tell how much wing chun influenced him by his style. He was kicked out of the school when it was discovered he wasn't 100% chinese

Not wanting to sound rude, but I would recheck your facts. I went home and re-read a old magazine interview done with Lee the year he died...before he died....and he stated that he had one instructor his whole life and that was Yip man. He trained with a tone of people, from Boxers, Karateka, Judoka and everything you could think of....He only had one instructor and that was Sifu Man!

Maybe Cheung was a training buddy. but a lot of those guys tried to cash in on his name after he left and said they taught him....I normally would just roll and eye or two at people that say that. Bruce himself stated who his instructor was, and that is what the man said!

Errr, another story that does not hold water! sorry, he was not kicked out, he trained for two years, almost three then moved to the states. I have NEVER read that he was given the boot for not being all Chinese. Point of fact, he held a good relationship with Man Sifu and even returned to train with him when he was filming in Hong Kong. So, if he was given the boot, he would not have probably had a good relationship with Man and he probably would not have come back to train and show Yip Man his JKD. And no that is not from the movie but from notes he left that John Little put into a biography of Lee. Lee had a date book he kept and apparently when he was in Hong Kong he visited Yip Man several times to chat and train.
