Do you study traditional characters, or simplified characters?

The particular site I am learning from teaches simplified.

I want to learn traditional characters, mainly because the traditional characters are what hanja (Korean) and kanji (Japanese) are based on. It's also apparently easier to recognize simplified if you already know traditional, rather than vice versa.

But I'm finding this frustrating because most material is simplified. Maybe learning both would be best, but that requires a lot of discipline!

I learnt traditional in school and have difficulty reading simplified :/ Exacerbated since I started learning Japanese.
