Beginner Help
I am new to this forum as well as new to the world of MMA. I have been watching UFC and WEC for a few years and I have just now become interested learning MMA myself. I am 19 years old, 6' 6" and 215 pounds so I was wondering as to what type of training I should go into. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Welcome. Alot of gyms are training in MMA specific classes now unlike years ago when you had to go to several different places, so you will get a little of everything and see where your focus goes toward. condition, condition, condition! and ya you suck for being 6" taller than me... Most of the guys I train with are either 3"-6" taller than me or way shorter, it's weird...

haha being tall is not all its worked up to be. for starters whenever I go into a fight I'm pretty much always expected to win, and if I lose I look like a *****. And people who are shorter always have that edge to prove people wrong which is pretty effective in fighting.

For MMA I started out with a ninjutsu background combined with mantis and crane kung fu. This got me prepared for fighting by showing me not to be so involved in movement, but to wait for the right time and take them out. The ninjutsu also helped me with wrestling, jui jutsu, and striking because of their fast motions and sneaky tactics ;)
