Why i recommend doing one thing at a time.

I made this thread to the begginers or the people that are still unsure to where or what to do? In what ive seen that works and is better is learning one thing at a time. What i reccomend to all the begginers is to take only boxing as much as you can first. Then move into jujitsu because boxing is really good to start off with. People that i know train they pay 100 dollars a month for mma and they suck!

I started to train at my house boxing when i knew nothing! You can go to a boxing gym but only boxing. Im not very good boxer but for the time i trained like 3 months i am very ver better than the other guys that payed 100 dollars a month! Then i tried jujitsu and im still better than them in jujitsu!

if you train in boxing you will develop bad habits in stand-up against MMA'ers, its actually better to train muay thai for standup... IMO

dude i dunno man everyone learns differently and at a different rate, what might be good for someone might not be good for someone else. like i jumped into mma like a year and a half ago and when i spar with my friend who's a boxer i can hang with him and he's really really good...almost pro before he got a mad concussion...everyone learns differently just gotta do what's right for you

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

I find if you train in, for example, only boxing, and afterwards move onto something like BJJ, the likelyhood that you'll fight like a boxer in the cage is quite high. Of couse that would give you a huge advantage when going toe to toe with your opponent, but you'll have a lot more trouble if he gets you to the ground.

In my own opinion, it's better to train all dimensions of MMA together in a managable manner. This way you'll end up more of an all-round fighter thus becoming somewhat more of a challenge to most opponents you'll face.
