Adapting Traditional Martial Arts.... Who's Interested?

Hey guys, I'm planning to start a small series of fanposts on adapting traditional martial arts for use in MMA. As of right now the two I'm planning to do myself are Tae Kwon Do and Wing Chun. I'll be first examining any practioners of the arts and what they've perhaps done to adapt their style to MMA and what their shortcomings have been, and then I'll be looking at ways that it can be adapted further for use in MMA.

However, I'd like to first of all gauge the level of interest in this sort of subject and as well as that I'd like suggestions of other martial arts that people want me to have a look at. If I feel I'm not knowledgeable enough in the field, I'd also like to find out if anyone would be willing to help out with it and maybe make it a semi-regular feature for the fanposts.

Thanks, the first one is in progress.
