Start of MMA

I have a few questions

1. When school starts i am going to be going to boxing 3 days a week and submission fighting 3 days a week. Do you think that this is a good start.

2. What age can u start fighting competivly

3. What can i do myself to jump start my carrer.

I am 16 and have no formal back ground fighting. I watch mma all the time on t.v and am the kind of guy that thinks boxing his friends is the best way to spend free time.Im also in pretty good shape have about 12 % bodyfat and can bench 175 at weighing 128. In the future i want to fight competivly and maybe try to make it to the big time and make it a carrer

Thanks for all the help

1. Yes that is a good start.

2. 18 i think is the minimum for most places but start fighting when ever you feel ready.

3. Train hard and fight well.
