What's up, I just joined because I took a sudden interest in MMA and stuff like UFC a few months ago.
Recently I've made the decision that I wanted to do some MMA fighting, so I told my dad, who somehow knows like every single business in my area (New Orleans). He told me that if I wanted to fight, then I should start with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Now, I watch the fights and stuff for entertainment, but I don't know about the fighting styles and such that the fighters use. So, my question is, is BJJ a good place to start? Another thing I would like to know is if I go to a place (BJJ place), I would like reassurance that it won't be like my years in Tae Kwon Do. I want some serious stuff, and I'm willing to put forth hours out of my days for it.
