Advanced fighters only?

Hi, I'm looking to try MMA, I currently box (been doing it for a few months now).

I was looking on a website teaching submissions skills, it said advanced fighters only, does this apply everywhere or is this specific to that gym?

The reason I ask is that where I box they do an MMA class (it's a ju jitsu academy) I don't have a number so can't ring, but don't want to go down there and find out that I have to be a certain belt in Ju Jitsu etc before going to a class.

Before anyone says the class is tonight I'd rather go than wait until my next boxing session if possible.

Cheers, James.

Most schools have beginner, or some intermediate classes and once you get instructor approval you can do advanced classes. Thats what I've seen at least.

I've never actually heard of a class that didn't accept complete noobies. In fact, in almost every class I know of (and there are many around here), everyone started off as complete novices.

I spoke to my instructor.

He said don't go without learning martial arts to a high level first as I'll get "the shit knocked out of me, and that there's blood everywhere after the weds class."

I'm going a Japanese Jui Jitsu class there tommorrow, can't wait, he said try this to see if I like it as it's less likely to result in me getting battered.

Will this be useful for self-defence/mma?

Also how similar is it to BJJ?

just plugging in my two cents, i dont know what each and every class teaches, but i would assume their emphasis would be on sport. iono if they would practice a lot of self defense, eg vital points, press kick to the knee cap (not the top of the calf) ridge hands to the carotid arteries, hook kicks to the kidneys, eye gouging, speals to the jugular, upper cuts or kicks to the ulna nerver, shots to pop the radial nerve, palm strikes to the heard, middle knuckle upset punches targeted under the sternum, downward strikes to the clavical, backfists to the temple. all that is what we use for street defense, not allwoed in the ring. my class isn't mma specific so we use that, iono if yours will

that reminds me, lol EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

I learn some self defense as well, like what do if someone holds a knife to your throat etc.
