There are good guys here, especially when it comes to training and fighting, I'm sure you'll get some quality advice.
Thanks for the input!

Yes taking seperate classes will have you doing one thing at a time. But you may not have the time to be at the gym 6 hours a day like some are.
I have had success doing just 3 MMA classes a week and sparing/rolling while Im not at class or waiting for the next class with my trainers and partners. Mind you I would show up 3 hours before a class to do that.
Bottom line you need time
Thanks for the very detailed post! I'll follow your instructions and go from there.
