Independant MMA Training?

Where I live im 95% sure there is no type of MMA training facility nor are there any MMA trainers because my town is a little on the small side. There MAYBE a jiu-jitsu gym but im more interested in the MMA training. I was wondering if people would think it is a decent idea to get some good people together who have the same interest and sort of create our own small gym type of set up, maybe order the MMA gloves and gym equipment and such, More of a weekend casual thing for most people. Has anyone else tried this and had any success?

I was thinking like just involving some people I know like relatives and close friends and maybe it would catch on and become more conventional. For a facility I'm going to try to find an open enough space that we could pad the ground, just basic stuff, get some info from the internet and vids on techniques...Anyone got any comments or ideas on this? It would be great to get some feedback.

Yeah if theres enough people go for it.


Tips...


If theres no fighting places near you just google and use the net to find articles and demo videos and place it in your fighting style.

If there is a Jiu Jitsu place near you then it would help your MMA a fair few UFC fighters use Jiu Jitsu so if your up for it then go for it.

And if you want to, to keep interested until your able to(if you want to) travel to fight gyms and such then to have some fun, get ready and a few other things get your friends to have a little MMA comp between you. Buy some MMA gloves and go for it.

And do running, weights etc to just train for if you ever get into a proper MMA league.

My borther and I used to spar a lot before i got into real MMA and that helped out a lot. Just make sure you incorporate the styles of many top MMAists into your training and remember the best thing to do is relax while training. If a person is relaxed they dont get tired as easily. I learned that from experience

I've never had any martial arts training but because me and my friends watch it and mess around, I can get a good armbar, triangle, heel hook, I know how to use guard, pass guard and hold guard. Its cool sparring with friends asong as you're sensible about it.

I learned grappling before ever getting involved with bjj.

I studied bjj , allot of subs and setup techniqeu's cuz i was always wrestlING WITH my friend who is a very strong 230 pound football player and wrestler who thinks he's the shit becasue he can throw around anyone at our highschool(at that time)

After I subbed him a few tiems in front of everybody, then it was great because i was the king.

he woudlent grapple me unless we where alone anymore cuz he knew he'd probly lose.
Im only a 160 pounds max so for me to be subbign this guy just shows how effective bjj can be even if you learend it through the internet....plus a lil judo before hand i guiess probly helped allot.

i would actually recommend starting out sparring with your friends. Buy a good BJJ dvd and work on that and buy a good muay thai or kick boxing DVD and work on t hat and work on your sprawl. That way when/if you move on to work on a gym you wont walk in not knowing ANYTHING and getting pwned by the other guys

Yeah I'm not really into the whole thing like "Yeah lets just act like we know everything and beat the crap outta eachother until someone goes to the hospital, like some poeple do."

Just some people to do some light sparring with because its kind of hard to practice by yourself.

Sparring is the best form of training, so spar as much as you can.
