Hi Guys,

I'm Thomas, 29, haling from Belgium. After having played Rugby for 9 years I started Muay Thai about two years ago. I just practice it to stay in shape, no need for competition.

Now I'm looking into adding BJJ and try MMA.

I'm 6f5 so I'm not sure BJJ is the best option. Boxing, Wrestling or judo are the sports that don't really appeal to me.

So I joined this forum to get as many info as possible as I don't have a MMA gym close by.

I also would like to ask what MMA includes as some MMA clubs offer this as besides the other styles that I mentioned above.

Many thanks.

Kind regards.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

To answer your question, MMA includes basically everything from boxing, karate, TKD, muay thai to wrestling, judo, sambo and BJJ. The styles that are taught in MMA class probably depend on the gym.

As for your other question, there are others who are more qualified to answer.
