As a general rule, all I can suggest is that you try finding a gym with Pro fighters, as even if your not looking to fight, they'll be able to offer you techniques that are tried and tested, and the standard of students will normally be better so you'll improve quicker.
I live in the U.K, so know more about the gyms here, but know a fair few guys from mine, or associated gyms have trained in U.S, and Holland.
Reply back and i'll try and help you out mate?
Hey man, thanks for the reply.

I'm in Ottawa, Canada actually. I suppose I want to get better at stand up before groundwork, like maybe start out with striking and such? Basically if I ever get into it at a bar or something I want to be able to defend myself you know? That and just the fitness that comes with MMA training is all I'm looking for.
