is this a good MMA PROGRAM?

Hey guys im new in the forum, so i dont know if this is the correct place to post this. The thing is ive always loved mma, (watching of course)...so after lots and lots of weight loss from track and field(running a lot) i decided to try going for it , not competively but just to learn the sport.... so theres this gym close to my house, and they are certified by american top team to give their level 1 mma program and there also also boxing, bjj, taewondo and fitness yoga for 135 monthly...i already went and i loved it ..but i just wanna know is it a good deal....like even though they dont offer muay thai..they have monthly seminars for different martial arts including muay thai.... thanx

I think that if you really enjoyed it and think yourself that it is worth it, than it is.

Also depends on how much time you intend on spending doing it.

I would make sure the activities you would want to do would fit nicely into your schedule.

Gotta agree with Mirage on this. If you're happy with what you're getting out of it, its a good deal. IMO a good coaching staff and training partners make or break a gym. In terms of a "MMA gym", if they don't train fighters who compete it might be a McDojo. It doesn't sound like it in your case.

I would agree with Mirage here :-)

it depends more on the teachers then what is being taught
really good instruction in boxing is better then shoddy instruction in M.Thai or viceversa. but as far as price goes 135 a month for an actual MMA program is pretty fair, most good places for just BJJ are at 100 a month
how many classes can you get to in a month, and is there any MMA going on, grappling with strikes? I am not familear with ATT's level 1 program.

Go easy on the skateboarding after you're able to get back into the gym.

It sounds like you'll get your money's worth, learn a ton and hopefully have a great time.

So from what I can see there isn't any true MMA like a mixture of Strikes with Ground work
I realize you havn't been there long but is that characteristic? I'm just trying to figure out what the overall deal is hope I'm not prying.

the mixture of the techniques is covered on the mma class...its just when its the striking hour its like striking in the clinch, like striking and getting the takedowns and when its ground hour its like ground and pound class and submissions and submission with strikes applired stuff like that .,.its liek a class for combining everything i learn in the week ....
