Boxing to MMA
Alright here is the deal, I've been training Karate pushing ten years now, but I feel it's not really want I'm looking for any more. It's no longer competitive in any form, we never spar and very rarely hit the pads anymore, we spend all our time doing Kata. I just get no joy or sense of competition out of it anymore.
I've got a year before I leave for college, in which time I hope to find a nice MMA camp near by a decent business University. But before I leave I would really enjoy to find some place to train and prep for that time, something really competitive. There is a Mauy Thai camp starting up in town, but it doesn't open until next spring (just before I leave). So I figured I might give a local boxing club a chance. Now my only worry is (other then is it a good club or not) is training strictly boxing to one dimensional (strictly punching) to be getting into a MMA career with?
