Thinking Of Taking MMA Class.

I was thinking of taking a MMA Class which includes Judo, BJJ, Wrestling, Muai Thai, Kickboxing, Boxing, Sambo... pretty much everything you could ever want/need. The problem is that you HAVE to sign a 6 or 12 month plan, which costs $600 or $1000... Thats a lot of dough. It is a Miletich camp, so you know the coaches are going to be good. Worth it?

EDIT: I should also mention that there are frequent seminars from great practitioners, such as: Pat Miletich, Eddie Bravo, Gokor, Chris Brennan, Igor Yakimov etc...

It's almost a no brainer for someone with prior experience, but I have none... I didn't know if I should take a much cheaper Striking or Grappling class first, or join a gym and get myself into shape beforehand, I have a feeling I am going to get my ass whomped.

Getting your ass kicked is a good thing. You learn faster.

A lot of people make that same false assumption. Nothing can get you into shape for a grappling/striking class better than just doing it. You will get your ass whomped... it's MMA training... you're gonna get hit. If you're worried about that then you shouldn't take any classes... just buy a gun.

I'm not worried about getting hit, I have 2 older brothers and a younger one. We go at it all the time. The real question I guess I was trying to get at is, would I get more out of the MMA class, taking everything at once (Literally everything... Judo, Sambo, MT, BJJ, Wrestling), or should I practice one thing at a time. I am a pretty fast learner, but I don't want to be so overwhelmed that I have no clue WTF is going on.

I'm a proponent of the "immersion" way of learning. Some people probably do learn better by easing their way into it. I tend to catch on a lot faster when it serves my best interest to do so (i.e. - I learned to slip a jab really quick when the other option was to get punched in the face). All of those martial arts you listed add a specific skill set to your MMA training. Muay Thai- fighting on the feet Judo/Wrestling - getting him to the ground BJJ- what to do once you're on the ground, etc. To be a well rounded MMA fighter (so you aren't a total fish-outta-water in one area) I'd recommend taking them all. But that's only if you have a bunch of free time.
