Good School in Northern Virginia
I live in the Northern Virginia area and was wondering if anyone knew of a good school? I'm wanting to start training was wondering if its better to find an all around school or start by going to three or four different schools for individual styles? I'm thinking a combo of BJJ, Boxing, and Muay Thai would be a good way to go. Also looking to start out slow, money is tight and i'm 33 so probably not going to be the next big thing in the UFC, lol but Def want to get into the cage.

Any thoughts or suggetions are welcomed.

Thanks James

Google MMA gyms in your city. Also, alot of BJJ gyms are now leaning towards MMA rather than straight grappling.

Since you want to compete it is important to find a gym that offers boxing/kickboxing, submission wrestling (no gi jits) and MMA which combines the techniques. Don't worry so much about learning styles independently of each other.
