Definitely find one that fits you. If it's not fun for you, eventually you will find something else has the priority. Find the right gym and coaches and you will never miss a day. See about trial period, most good gyms want you to know 100% that you want to train in MMA.

Also remember if everyone these days is training in BJJ and Muay Thai what are you going to do to come out ahead. I mix in some Sambo, Silat, Bando, JKD, Escrima, Khali. Adding these in usually as a cool down workout increases ability to judge range, timing, footwork, and you pick up some "nasty" little things to slip into your MMA game.

Yeah, you do have a good point, I should mix in things that most people arent doing, I know what Sambo is, but what are the other ones? I've never really heard of those.

Yeah true true....well I will definitely look for a school that offers more than those two styles. The more styles I know, the more successful I can become.

JKD= Jeet Kune Do (basically MMA but Kung Fu origin, good for moving and transitioning more fluidly)
Silat= Martial art from Indonesia (good for joint lock/manipulation, close range)
Bando= Martial art from Burma (similar to Muay Thai and Kung Fu animal styles)
Escrima/Kali= Filipino stick/sword/knife fighting (great for learning timing, range, reaction speed, and defensive tactics. You learn way faster when someone is going to hit you w/ a stick. Especially to kep your hands up!)
Judo is good to go w/ your BJJ and mix up w/ some Sambo.

You don't need to master any of these but they can help to improve aspects of your game by taking what you need from each.

I'm actually warning her

Besides, when she is learned enough to be around these parts, I will welcome her to the lounge properly.

Some of those styles and others may have no practical applications to MMA they have other added benifits in real world situations plus the honed reflexs and such plus the improved over all conditioning would not hurt..
