Find a MMA gym, and they'll take you from there.

Just find the nearest combat gym in your area. Don't buy into the whole "MMA Class" gimick. Legit gyms will have a free trial or a free class that lets you check out their program. Wat I suggest is that you train BJJ, Muay Thai, and Wrestling sperately or BJJ, Muay Thai and "MMA"

After a few months your trainers will let you know if your ready for a fight. I would personally wait 6 months to 1 year but I guess I am just cautious.

So I hope that answers your question, go start training ASAP and drop the excuses that I hear everytime; "Oh I am going to get into shape first before I go to the gym." No, just no. Even BJJ will kick your ass I can bet you that. The whole point of training is to get you in shape and teach you the techniques.

Goodluck and enjoy

I wouldnt have said a thing different. One thing i would add is, if you want to fight competitively, you need to dedicate yourself to it. Not like, going to a gym and working out a few times a month. You have to train train train.

Well I checked their class schedule and they only have kickboxing twice a week and the rest of the week is BJJ and while that is nice for a BJJ practitioner it isn't ideal for a mixed martial artist these days. The website advertises Muay Thai, wrestling and judo as well but the schedule suggests differently. Give them a quick call and ask.

I like the flat fee...Its a little high but its unlimited. The true worth ofa gym is in its instructors. The place looks like its ok in size. I say go for it and see if you like it
