Trying to start up training

So I want to get into training but I have a few questions.

My friend who trains just BJJ said it's better to train in one discipline and just focus on it. Would it be better to go to a specialized school that focuses solely on one discipline? Would a specialized MMA gym be better/worse/the same in terms of teaching? I'm more interested in learning stand-up but the ground game also looks intriguing.

Does anyone have any experiences with schools in the Los Angeles area? I remember there was a Chute Boxe Academy in LA but I think it's gone missing or something. I was also considering Brazilian Top Team in Long Beach.

Training in one and then another used to be the way to go. As more gyms have popped up with MMA specific training, I would say it is good to check them out. For example I have a coach for each aspect of training but they communicate with each other and show you how to put everything you have learned together. Not sure about LA area.
