First Mma Lesson At New Gym.


I have recently posted for some info about nutrtion mainly and some conditioning techniques and I got a pretty good response..

I have been training with my friend who has experience in MMA but not a a proper gym at the moment (just at our local park fields - ie Runs and some wrestling work, very simple techniques to lay a base), I wanted to have a little bit of knowledge outside of the gym before I went, not wanting to go in their blind....

I am due to join my local gym this week but im a litlle nervy about what to expect??

Should i expect to be hurled around the matts by a burly MMA expert and his fully experienced students?

I am really keen to learn but I didnt want to come across as a dooshbag because i know minimal things...I know its all apart of the learning process i know.....

What should i expect? How can I prepare for my class? What should i take with water, clothing etc..??

Should i be as nervous as I bloody feel??!??!

If you go in there and they treat you like an idiot then you should pick a new gym. To get ready just make sure and take in lots of water and stretch out before hand. You should probably ask what they want you to bring with you as far as equipment goes. Ive been to a few different gyms and a couple of them made you wait awhile before you started rolling or sparring and the other one just put you in the mix right off the bat. Wearing athletic shorts, a t-shirt your not worried about messing up and a cup is a good place to start with the attire. You shouldnt feel to nervous, a good gym will work with your skill level. Try to remember that everyone in the gym was new to mma at some point. Good luck and have fun.
