Question Hey there all!!!

Hey there everyone!!! How are you guys? I am stoked. I wanna start getting into MMA, but I have a couple questions first: 1st: how do you find time between college and work? 2nd: how can you tell if you are a natural born fighter? 3rd: how do you determine whether or not you have a strong chin? 4th: How can you tell if you will excel in stand-up or ground?
I am stoked for what lies ahead!!!!!!

Welcome to the forum I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here.

1. It's hard. I can't balance work, college, and training right now so I'm going to hold off till the summer when I have more time. When I was wrestling it was easier because I didn't work.

2. I'm not sure.

3. Go to a few classes, spar and you'll find out.

4. Same as 3. Go to a few classes, roll around and take a few stand up lessons and you'll learn which one you like.

One night a long time ago, I was sparring with Tae Kwon Do class with a guy named Billy. He had perfected a very close range hook kick. He performed the kick so close that there was no way to really see it coming. It caught me across the right side of my jaw, but the pain I felt was on the left side of my jaw, like an exit wound. I went to operate my jaw to see if it was all good, and this incredibly loud popping sound, which could be heard throughout the room, occurred. I assume that this was my mandible snapping back into its proper place. I was good after that, I lost the match on points, but I figured I passed the chin test. Billy sparred the sensei next, and landed the same close-range hook kick onto the right eye of our sensei. He was knocked out for a few seconds, and he did not stand for about 15 minutes. Billy was a good fighter...

Welcome to the forum, Maerz.

Well, you know, sometimes I like to run on aimlessly, just ask anyone here, they will verify. But the point of my story was that there is only one way to test the strength of your chin, and that is to take a hard shot on it.
