FCO has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I was a wrestler in high school as well. It provides you with a fundamental understanding of discipline, training, cutting weight, and competition. If I were you, I would put all of my energy into learning as much as you can about wrestling and mastering take-downs, take-down defense and ground control. After you finish the season, make the transition to MMA. It wouldn't hurt to start learning how to box in the mean time, but I would wait until after the season to join an MMA gym and begin learning Jiu-Jitsu or other grappling disciplines.

i agree whit what is stated above.Another thing if you did mma, school and wrestling, you would have very little time to do school work/eat and whit the amount of physical work you would probably end up getting hurt, any person not in extremely great shape would. If i were you and could pay to do mma, i would just not do mma during wrestling season.

When you do start training dont act like your the shit because you're on the wrestling team haha. Not to say that you would do that kind of thing lol but anyone that has trained with someone like that knows what im talking about and its just annoying and what not. Kinda random and pointless but oh well. But yeah do what FCO says that sounds like a good idea. Good luck with it bro!

Good point Flaw, always be humble. Be confident in your ability to learn and develop as a fighter, but always be humble and respectful towards your sparring partners and especially your teachers. The better you get, the more it pays to be humble and respectful, it will go a long way!
