Hey people..

over the last few months ive been training my muscles and revitalizing my old kick boxing training..

I am a jack of all trades but a master of none so I know dips and dabs of alot of other martial arts but I wanted to get into amateur MMA fighting obviously I spar on occasions with other fighters but that isnt a real fight its all friendly...

I can hold my own, take massive hits and I have good speed and weight behind me... I was just wondering if there were any MMA fighters here who would know where I would start I was obviously thinking I need a few more months working out my technique as its really rough at the moment due to being so long, but I thought I should start looking into it now so i have something to work towards.

edit: forgot to say... this is england, from what I am aware things like this are easier in america.

Thats understandable, they are thinking about your safety i guess besides from the limited info you provided i see you only know how to fight on your feet no judo or take down defense like wrestling might be best to do more training than trying to dive in head first, kickboxing will only help you so far and taking a hit means nothing these days as one hit in the right place and everyone goes down. Im pretty sure any mma fighter will tell you to train for a long time and put in your dues before jumping in.

you make perfect sense, but at the same time I kind of just want to go in and get started I rather take what I know put up a good fight and lose winning isnt important to me.

I know lots of other skills but only parts... I know some defensive judo, a tiny tiny bit of thai boxing, generic boxing and some wrestling holds and pins... obviously not enough to class my self as a fighter in any of them and its just moves I have picked up from training and sparring with people of other disciplines. I just think if I could get one MMA fight I can see what I need to work on ... when I friendly I learn so much of my mistakes and techniques that I think a real fight would do so much more for me even if its just one until I get better lol and bar fights dont count.

This is the thing, while you admit you know "parts" they will of been training for years so know alot more and are more disciplined and im going to guess alot fitter seeing as your just getting back into it all. MMA is a great sport but also a violent one where injury can mean the end of a career or worse (not heard of a death yet but its always possible i have seen legs and arms broke though!) if they were to let people into a cage just because "they" thought they were ready it would mean there were alot more injury's not only that but it would give the sport a bad reputation (Safety first as Dana White says).

As for seeing what you need to work on thats whats sparing is there for oh and of cause friends and other gym members you can discuss what needs to be worked on, work together in slower motion and arrange to improve it. In the cage its fast paced and you woudlnt have a clue till you'd lost the fight or even were injured. So im sorry but im going to have to stick with the professionals on this one and say train more if its something you really want to do, dont forget if they break there arm they have money and can afford to be out of work if you break your arm and are unable to code can you afford it? Maybe you can, but im guessing it would put more train and stress on you than them lol.

haha it would be a very difficult few weeks if i broke a bone in my arm seeing as computing is my bread and butter, I will be trainning for another 6 months before I even try and set up a ring match and it will be a year before i could even get a match .. but it was just something I wanted to start looking into now ... to get me a started and aiming towards something.... im thinking of taking some one to one classes soon as I hate group trainning

Id be the same if im honest id want one on one time with someone rather than a group training it would sink into my brain better i feel plus you can ask more questions on how to improve the technique and what not. Ofc you can still do group training from time to time just to practise on other people and training styles im pretty sure thats what top fighters would do anyhow, as for an aim you can still aim to fight you just need to score one or two other goals before hand how to escape, stay safe and better fitness! (if u need that part).

Anyway good luc with it, MMA is a great sport imo love watching it =)
