i think you should ask people who know something about mma in real life if you know any friends. if not use the computer. personally i would have a personal trainer for some time then i would work by myself. (if you got a lot of money get a personal trainer for a lot longer)
"The game of chess, is like a swordfight
You must think first, before you move"
Not read that book but have read training for warriors by martin rooney which I found usefull. And as a personal trainer Im hoping that I am the 1% who is not a moron but then since I run my own studio and dont work out of a gym maybe thats where Im different!!
