Basically i am an aspiring mma fighter ive been attending my local fight gym <A style="cursorointer;" onmouseover="window.status=''; return true" href='http://www1.flexysearch.com/?query=5+times+a+week&acc=frtn'>5 times a week</A> for the last <A style="cursorointer;" onmouseover="window.status=''; return true" href='http://www1.flexysearch.com/?query=6+weeks&acc=frtn'>6 weeks</A> and i am looking to carrying on this <A style="cursorointer;" onmouseover="window.status=''; return true" href='http://www1.flexysearch.com/?query=rota&acc=frtn'>rota</A>. My gym is a specialist muay thai gym but they have an mma teacher who takes bjj/wrestling classes.
As of now i go muay thai 4 <A style="cursorointer;" onmouseover="window.status=''; return true" href='http://www1.flexysearch.com/?query=times+a+week&acc=frtn'>times a week</A> and bjj/wrestling only once a week.
Ive recently understood the importance of ground technique in mma.

so my question is, should i be attending more bjj/wrestling classes than muay thai or keep at my 4:1 ratio.

thanks guys
Go with what the teacher tells you or what you feel( He may be just trying to sell u). Ask yourself if you think your ground game is better then your Muay thai. And if you think your better at the stand up game.If you still feel that your ground game isnt improving then ,do some research and look for a grappling school. Its good to have all of the basics pretty much on the same page......but you will always have a strong point.Well I hope this helped good luck
