I think I am ready to compete... What next?

OK while I watch MMA stuff on TV and have been training in different Art forms since I as about 6 year old, Other then a few regular Martial arts Tournements when I was much younger I have not really done any serious competition. Now I do not know if it because I am 28 now and am just curious to test myself or what. But I am seriously debating throwing my hat into the ring so to speak.

Here is a bit of my training background.
Started off in Judo when I was about 6, after about 5 years got out of officical traning, but did some greco-Roman wrestling with My Uncle and brother who was on the school team. I studided privately with some friends and people I know in styles such as Muay Thai, Capoeria ( I so sucked at this one) and did lots of grappling work before I officaly started training again in a ninjitsu school for about a year then went into the military. I then did another year of training in ( pardon the spelling i know I am going to kess this up) Kosho Shorei More recently I have studied some Tang Soo Do and Insinryu ( again spelling) . If anyone has any training suggestiong or advice, or even were to go to find local competions ( nashville, TN by the way) I would be glad of the help. Thank you

I don't know about local competitions, Don, but usually if you ask teachers they have a pretty good idea. I'm a grappler, but I go to tkd and karate dojos and ask for information that they have on competitions and that kind of stuff.

Doing some scouting is usually important, but if you're crazy you can just dive right in.
