Posted this thread on another website, but I got nothing but a bunch of people making stupid comments and trying to be funny, so I figured I'd ask this here.
I'm 17 now, and in 4-5 years I'd like to start competing in some local MMA fights. However, I can only pick one thing to start out with because of money.
I can take either:
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and they have a class once a week where they go over MMA techniques, striking, clinch, and submissions.
Or a boxing gym I found 2 days ago. It's ran by an olympic bronze medalist from puerto rico.
Would the MMA class once a week be enough to improve my striking at all? I want to be both a solid striker, and solid on the ground, so which would I be better of starting with?
