Newb Help
Whats up guys? I've got a diet plan and work out set up for me from some guys on this site......My next step is finding out what is possibly the best striking and groud games out there....I have an OUTSTADNING background in wrestling from highschool and was very good at it.....Should I stick to that and sharpen my skills or move into something like BJJ which is something that interests me......Also I was looking at Muay Thai.....Any suggestions for when I get ready to get into classes?

First of all it is great that you have a solid background in wrestling! I would definitely look into taking some BJJ classes. That is pretty much a must have now. Not that you need to be a blackbelt, but you pretty much have to know what is happening on the ground since most other fighters do now. Just make sure that you remain proficient in wrestling as well!

Also Muay Thai is an excellent standup technique. All standup techniques can be devestating if they are learned properly so that is really about what suits you more. But Muay Thai is a very dangerous technique that would be a great asset! You could also do something like kick boxing or just traditional boxing if you want. It is up to you, just stick with whatever you choose.

Also a lot of places offer MMA classes that are very helpful. They combine various striking and grappling techniques in their trainings. It is a good class in my opinion.

Hopefully this helpes a bit. Have fun and train hard! :thumb02:

Yes that helps I just wanted to make sure that what I was choosing were good choices as I know every fighter has their own style and technique just like wrestling

I'd think Muay Thai is one of the best choices. It integrates knees and elbows more than other fighting styles. I'd also recommend taking some boxing lessons, nothing better than a good right hand.
