Exclamation MMA or American Kickboxing - Advice needed


I need your advice.

I'm a 21 years old guy and my martial arts experience is the following: From age 5-10 I did judo. I have a green belt in judo. Won several competitions at that time. Then I did no martial arts until 2 months ago when I started American style Kickboxing (no knees, no elbows, no low kicks).

I did all kinds of sports from age 10-20. Soccer, skateboarding, tennis, bodybuilding ( last 3 years ).

I wanted to do muay thai but we don't have that near where I live. I live in a small city in Hungary.

A few days ago a friend of mine told me that there is an MMA gym in the neighbour city ( 10 minutes by car) and it is a great place. Tomorrow I will go and watch the trainng.

My goal with martial arts is to become more of a man, more confident and to be able to defend myself and my loved ones if I have to and maybe compete later in a ring or a cage It would be cool.

So my question is the following: Should I switch to MMA from my kickboxing class? I ask this because I am not sure if MMA suits beginners like me. Yep, I've been doing kickboxing for 2 months but I am just getting the hang of the basics and I am still not that flexible (can do roundhouse kick max. chest level).

I would like to switch to MMA because I like that sport better.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance
