    Martial Arts and Boxing
    Has anyone noticed the various levels of boxing are beginning to show signs of martial arts training or martial arts type stances? Is this because trainers are utilizing martial artists to aid there boxers? Is it because many martial artists and boxers are crossing-over? Can anyone discuss this?

    There are probably several reasons. But one is money. Several years ago I knew a world PKA champion who turned to boxing because the pay was better.

    I'd say many people cross-train these days. I know that I myself train a few skills, and I don't even do it professionally. Also, ultimate goal for martial artists would be the MMA fights, and the name says it all - Mixed Martial Arts.

    Also, I'd say it's dumb to stick to one skill and one skill only. I say - see what other skills have to offer and take the thing that suits you best from each of it.
