MMA in my Future.
Hi there, I'm new to the MMA scene, I remember hearing about it a few years ago and how people LOVED it in my high school. Now I'm leaning towards going into the scene. My original goal was to learn some MA, but after looking at a few places in my area, they offer A LOT of MMA and I think I want to try it and see how it goes. My current goal is to train for maybe a few years (2-3) and try out some amateur fighting. I'm currently 21, weight about 270lbs, 6'1", and have big broad shoulders. My question is is it a good idea to learn some form of Martial Arts before I start to train for MMA? Or just jump straight into MMA training while learning Martial arts. (I plan on learning Jeet Kune Do, Krav Maga, Aikedo, and JJ or BJJ). Or should I just hit the gym for a few months and get back into shape before learning anything? Good or bad feedback would be awesome. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
