Wanting to start a Martial Art / MMA

So I love watching MMA, and I decided it was about time I got into shape and I thought MMA would be a great way to do that.

There is an MMA gym not too far from where I live that has MMA classes, gi / no gi BJJ classes and muay thai classes.

MMA is what interests me the most, but I would really prefer to do a martial art for a few months before starting the MMA class, just to lay the ground work so i'm not starting MMA a complete beginner.

BJJ interests me quite a bit, it seems to be a very dominant style within the MMA scene, but it seems as if a lot of the stuff you learn with a gi becomes obselete when competing in MMA.

I like the belt system within gi BJJ, but I training in no gi seems like it would be a lot more beneficial when I eventually make the transition to MMA.

SO I guess my question is, what do you think would be the best way to train BJJ / MMA simultaneously to get the most out of both disciplines?

Thanks for reading!

a lot of BJJ classes/gyms will have a no Gi class. Failing that, BJJ with a gi, is better than no BJJ at all right?

Go along got the gym and find out exactly what they offer.
