Beginning Question...

Ok I searched around but couldnt really find the exact answer but:

I have been training in BJJS and hopefully take up Muay Thai or Kickboxing. Should I learn both styles at once or maybe take a some time in both so that I will be able to use the styles in different scenarios?

If your goal is MMA, I'd try learning both styles, from the same school. That way your intructors or coaches will know your goals and they will guide you in the right path. Also, fees are generally less.

try to find a school that specializes in mma that way you get all the training in one place and you will have a solid team for when you go to fights.

Well I live in Elk Grove and I know of Ultimate Fitness but they still tend to get down to certain styles. There's one other place downtown that I have heard of but I was looking to specialze in a few areas.

What would you recommend to get into for stand up fighting?

for standup i would go with muay thai. kickboxing is good but i think that muay thai is better. here's a school in sacremento you may want to look into if it's not too much of a drive for you... http://muaythaithaiboxing.net/Home_Page.html

i just checked out that ultimate fitness and if i were you thats where i would go train. urijah faber, james irvin, and scott smith all train and coach there. i was reading on their website and it says that they will be having mma specific classes starting up soon so if you have the opportunity check out that school it looks really good.

Haha wel I have been looking at that page for quite some time. And it has been saying that MMA classes will be available for about a month and a half if not longer.

i would just go down and talk to them. even if they don't have an mma specific class they have kickboxing, bjj, boxing for mma and takedowns for mma,and submission grappling. it looks to be a good place to train and you'll get all your different disciplins in one place which helps to make you feel like your part of a team. plus if you get all your training in one place like that you'll have a good core group of training partners. your best bet would be to call them up and talk with them. most schools will let you have a free practice with them or watch a practice to see if you like it and if it's where you want to train.

Hm I guess I will do that because price is also an issue. Id be paying for it or my parents or maybe a half way deal.

Thanks for the help.
