Join a gym in Alberta and once you take enough classes and your instructor feels you are ready for combat, he will sign you up at a promotion.

If you are under 18, you will need a parents signature on the contract.

You can start training whenever you want, but I believe you have to be 18 to fight professionally, I could be wrong though.

Do you train MMA current? If not, you need to start training.




What a stud

MMA is different than most sports for age. The grappling game especially can come very easy to a lot of guys fast. If your college or high school has a wrestling program sign up, you'll get in shape fast and do something far more tasking than watered down bjj twice a week
