When you've tried the different MAs and you have to professional's input as well, you can focus on what you find interesting as well as what they believe make a good base.

I was boxing way before I knew of MMA, but when I first went to a MMA gym I started out with kickboxing and what some people call submission wrestling (Which is basically wrestling with submissions mixed in there)

These days all I do is BJJ because that's what I find the most interesting and it's more of a hobby to me now (Plus a great way to stay fit)

What I'm trying to say here is - Do what you find challenging and exciting, that way you won't burn out in the long run
Great advice. I'll make sure that I pick the one I love instead of the "cool one." I hope to stay with MMA for a long time, even at older ages. I think you just saved me 6+ months of fooling around between different arts.

Thanks!

If you have the physical attributes I think learning the technical stuff and, the most important some humility, are the steps to be successful.
