Question Amateur question

I have really been getting into mma. I know of some classes that are held in my area which i do want to attend. Although i was wondering, is there any type of background i should know before i begin. Or should i focus on one particular style when i start. Ive done a lot of submission wrestling for fun, and ive gotten to know my way around submissions etc. Ive been told i should use this talent to further my knowledge in the sport. Ive never straight up regular wrestled though, i never liked the idea or style of it, unless its submission wrestling. Is it a necessity to have a lot of wrestling expirience when performing mma fights?

Just show up and go. These days people start training for any number of reasons. Some want to learn, some want to compete, others want to get in shape. People also join gyms with various backgrounds. Some wrestled in high school, others have trained in various martial arts, and some have no background whatsoever.
Have Fun

Have fun with your training first and foremost. It doesn't feel like work when you love what you do. Styles tend to develop as you train. People gave certain gifts in different areas and they should use that to their advantage. These are things you will find out by dropping in on that class in your area.

Keep banging
