How do you become an MMA Fighter, without help of a dojo.
 
Do you just join underground cage fights and build a name for youself, or what. Always wanted to know how, and how do you go about booking yourself to be in a cage fight?

You CAN register yourself and have the event organizer place you on a card, but without training you really dont have much of a chance.

you really need a dojo, i mean you can watch instructional dvd's and read the books but that just wont cut it.

also thread moved to general mma

Listen to this advice.... It will save your life.

Even if you watch UFC and the Instructionals and "think" youre ready to compete you still have to get some training partners to work on your technique.

You guys are judging this guy without any background info on him, lol.
Maybe he has past training, continues to train with his friends, but he has moved so there is no school near his place. Dunno, it's a possibility, lol.

If not, street fighting won't cut it, bro. There are people I know that think "I'm a street fighter, martial arts aren't shit to me". Reality check guys!

are you kidding me?

in what way did i judge this kid? its pretty cut and dry.

he asked if he can compete without learning from a dojo, i pretty much said i dont think so.

If he has any past training or anything he should have listed that, im not a mind reader. my response is based solely on the question he asked and the facts provided which were.............NONE.

While it is possible to teach yourself and learn - due to the fact you need to fight inside a set of rules screws you up. You can box the wind or hit a tree till your hearts content, but really that works for 1/50 people.

You still someone to hit you; for you to hit back.

Finding a sparring partner who knows what he/she is doing will help you greatly though.

But I'll always preach experience.

I wouldn't think you'd get any legitimate promoter to put you on their card, the insurance would be through the roof and it wouldn't be profitable for the promoter (and that's all they are worried about, for the most part).
