If you can find a place that teaches Jui Jitsu, Wrestling and kickboxing you will be in good shape. As far as the how long it will take and when you are ready to fight you and your trainers will have to determine that. Hitting some weights and doing some cardio would also be a good idea.

Lot's of cardio... Start running, swimming, and lifting in a fashion where you're doing it constantly and you feel like you're going to pass out afterwards. Guess what? After you wake up from passing out, get ready to do it again!

Now on what styles to train in... Can you let me know what's in your area? That might give me a better viewpoint to suggest something.

And as was posted above. If you're serious about fighting, if your trainers are worth their years in experience they will know when you are ready. I'm just going to forewarn you that if you're doing this as a part-time thing (and not a lot of people can start training in MMA full-time), it may take longer than you initially hope.

Good luck.

No problem, if you have any other questions about weight lifting or cardio just ask and I will do my best to answer. I hope onganju was kidding, you donít want to over do it when lifting weights you want to push yourself but you could seriously injure yourself if you over due it like that.

I didn't mean that literally. But, he is going to have to push himself. I honestly believe that is the first step to truly making the mental transformation into a better fighter. If you can't push yourself through a little hard running or lifting, how can you expect to push yourself through another trained fighter in front of you who doesn't want to lose either?

I suggest taking a grappling style, either BJJ or Judo, and a striking style, boxing is probably best. This will give you a good idea of where you're skills are and what you will need to improve in order to be a better fighter.

Most MMA fighters aren't masters of anything, except for some of the BJJ guys. Become well versed in different styles and focus on becoming a mixed martial artist.

It will probably be about 3-4 years before you're ready to start really fighting

It takes about a year of amateur fighting before you'll have the experience needed to quit the day job. If you're really a prodigy then maybe 6 months of amateur fighting. That really depends on you.

Obviously I don’t think you wanted him to pass out. I was just saying he really shouldn’t push himself too hard, I work out every day and I always push myself but you have to know your limits or you can seriously injure yourself, that is basically what I was trying to get across.
