lol i know you put joking afterwards but, what the quote is trying to state is that, even if you're in a good gym, say Chute Box or Militech..Without the desire to fight, without the vision to foresee yourself as a champion and without the heart to face any opponent they put infront of you....you're just wasting your time. Just wanted to say that because it made me feel good

Once you feel that you've had enough gather couple of your friends and just hold some MMA classes....try learning takedowns, submissions, and just build some crappy ass pads..or something. I seriously don't think you can be successful without joining a gym man....since you'll develop bad habits with the advice i just gave you but since you said you got no $...it's worth a shot.

My parents back me 100%. And I already do Taekwondo, but my parents can bareley pay for it. I really want to get into bbj but there is only one good school near frankfort. But i am hoping to get a job in a couple months so i might have some extra cash. Emphasis on might.

Can you train wrestling through your school? That would be a good start too. And it would be free.

I know what you mean by cost. There's only one gym locally where I live that trains thai boxing, bjj and sub-wrestling. And, like you, I am short on money to pay for regular classes so I had to find an alternative. So I tried an old school boxing gym that charges $60 a year (full use of equipment AND a trainer!) versus $150 for 3 months of training at the other gym.

So take the advice of some of the guys here and perhaps look for a boxing gym to train at as well as your high school wrestling program.If they have one. Both are excellent starts on the road to your development as a fighter.

You might want to try myfightspace.com to hook up with training partners in your area. That's how I found my grappling partner.

Okay, listen man. I don't want to sound mean or anything, but you need cash to get the results you want. At the very least, buy training videos, some weights and a heavy bag or two. I mean, I don't think training videos would make you UFC-capable, but at least it's a start.
You need money for supplements, equipment, etc. You just need it. Get a good job and see how things go...otherwise stick with Taekwon-do, so at least you could do SOMETHING.

Sorry, man, I don't mean to sound messed up or anything. I'm new too, and I see dreams, too. But I don't want to raise your hopes for no reason - sometimes reality sucks, you know?
But good luck man, I hope to see you competing in the UFC one day.

Do 50 puces in a complete combo not stopping in between a each do it as fast as you can. right when your done i mean you have to do all this stuff fast pace, do 20 pushups the 20, 20 sid ups then repeat. I also take a pillow put it on the ground and practice my elbowing on it. Get a heavy bag, practice leg kicks. What ever your weak in get better at and what ever your good at get better at.

Wow that is exactly the advice ive been looking for, the pillow on the ground thing is genius...but now I usually replace the situps with crunches and I do 30 at a time. But thanks man...All of you

Hahaha thanks for saying by idea was genius. I meant puches sorry to mix you up. If you do crunches I usually do more crunches than sid-ups. Before I goto bed I usually do 500-400 crunches. May be hard the first time but your body wil get used to it and youll be able to tell. I also spar with friends/cousin. If you have a older brother thats heavier than you try to wrestle with him and start on the bottom trying to make your way up and roll him over. I do all this stuff and I DOMONATE!! LOL. my current official score is 20-0 and 20 tkos. So trust me and put all your strength in while your doing the elbowing to the pillow and if you need any help with tips I give, just P.M. me
