Help finding gym/style for me

Hi I'm pretty new to mma. ALthough I've taken a class once in a blue moon, I've never serious committed myself to one.

Anyways, I'm trying to find an mma gym/dojo to train at. I'm looking for something that is very practical. I happened to stop by one of my local gyms where they practiced kesei fighting system and although they seemed committed and invited me to take a free lesson, it seemed rather unorthodox and I decided I'd be better off getting advice from some experienced people.

So anyone have any advice for me?

well I have to find something very local so my options are somewhat limited, but I do have a good idea of whats around. One place is a kickboxing/brazillian jujutsu place. whats nice about this place is that the first lesson is one on one and it's free. Another place I'm also considering is an Aikido dojo, and I really admire the beauty of this particular style of martial arts plus the first few lessons are free. Now the final option is a street fighting gym which includes something called V-Force and the Kesey fighting system. I don't know much about either of them.

I want to train in a style that's practical and I'm particularly interested in grappling.

If it were me, I would definitely go to the kickboxing/BJJ gym. Kickboxing is a very versatile striking discipline while BJJ is a huge asset to have in your arsenal. Especially if you like grappling.

Ya gotta go with the BJJ/kickboxing class.It will help you get in great shape mentally and physically. It is a better fighting system and you will get to grapple. Plus you will probably meet cooler people, Bjj isnt too much about traditions and discipline its more of a relaxed atmosphere.The only thing ive ever had to bow to was the mat.
