you also have the option of not training pure mma right off the bat....

you could try forms of martial arts first that will help you when you integrate them in the future...

i started with judo (really cheap right now since it is not so popular and there are lots of good schools) then moved to muay thai then finally to BJJ.. i have to add wrestling in the mix but i have no plans to be a pro fighter...
