How long till You should enter the ring?

Hello. I'm hoping to become an Amateur MMA fighter. I have started training at an MMA gym. I have trained in chinese kenpo for 11 years. How long would you say I should wait until I enter the ring? Like year wise, or belt wise?

Thank You

Belts are to hold up your pants... Listen to your body and your coaches to determine your readiness. It's hard for a bunch of people on the web to guage if you are ready. on avg. 1 to 1.5 yrs but some natural atheletes 6 months maybe.

...and Welcome!

i once again agree with perseus... get with a good coach and he/she will let you know when you are ready... in the mean time enter BJJ competitions and amateur kick boxing

Its all about what your body says. Don't listen to anyone, including your own head. If you can whip guys in sparring, you can probably beat guys in the ring. As for time. With something like BJJ or wrestling it took--in my case--around a year to decently burn everything into muscle memory. But everyone's different.

With so much of a striking background, your standup may well be good to go though, so its all in your self-analysis of your training performance...
