Since then I also started training in Krava Maga, Muay Thai, wrestling and boxing.

I came here to see about getting some advice on breaking into mma and maybe some training tips.
with all that training under your belt you may be giving out some tips to heh

To be honest, most of the locals (men included) where I live aren't great fighters. I suppose I may have to consider moving to a different city/state to pursue this.
basically building a record is important, it's great that you have a lot of confidence but you need to be ready before you take a big step up, it's a dangerous sport
