How to start? (for those who train MMA)

Next year I will most likely go back to Costa Mesa (California) and I really want to start trainng MMA. I've never trained any martial art before, so how should I start?
I mean which are the first steps? and what are the best training camps in Orange county? and how much does it cost?

hey, i don't live in the us so i can't help you there.

are you asking how to start as in you want to start training now by yourself? or are you saying how will training start when you're in a gym? i think it's a good idea to start training now. you have precious little time at the gym and you don't want to be wasting it learning fundamentals you could've learnt at home (using some instruction videos and basic equipment). i know some ppl will disagree with this by saying that you need strong fundamentals and that you'll develop bad habits training on your own, but habits aren't that hard to break and if you're watching quality instructional dvd's it should be enough for the fundamentals as long as you pay good attention to what's being taught.

secondly, if you join a gym and are unhealthy chances are you'll get injured and it'll make your life very hard.

get in shape and learn some basics and the trainers will take you from there.

Cardio. Train your cardio, run, jump rope, shadowbox alot etc...

There's no point paying for a gym and training if your passing out after the first 15 minites.

Once your have your cardio to a point where u can keep up a good pace for an hour or so. Then take it to next level
