Ya, i don't have any problem with tryin to help people, i actually am training with a buddy of mine who used to be a state champ in WA for freestyle wrestling, im helping him with submissions, kempo jiu jitsu and alot of kickboxing and i personally think he's a beast of a fighter if he decides to go pro (unlike me, i wish i could but cant, right now atleast).
i got my first fight right after i turned 18, i started MMA by training Submission wrestling and kempo jiu jitsu. Basically after that i just tried other fighting styles, i got into Kickboxing, slam and takedowns, and even a tad bit of BJJ. I think the best thing you can do to start in MMA is to really watch alot of fighters, i go to X Fighting Championships every time its in town (ill be there Oct 21st) and i really enjoy it even though its ametures youd think itd be bad but its better imo, you see more creative ideas because alot of these guys have nothing to loose and they do it for fun. Once you really i think have a well rounded mind of everystyle of MMA i think its a must you have a base starting game. Mine was Submission wrestling, i think of myself as a very well rounded fighter but if all fails im better on the ground, its my base skill. So basically just start where your comfertable. I know alot of people also say they dont base themselves around any other fighters and i dont like that. I base myself on alot of fighers (my fighting style that is), i try to be alot like Sean Sherk, Matt Hughes, Tito Ortiz on the ground and stading up wise i try and be alot like Sean Sherk, low to the ground, quick combos with nice inside game and a very nice variety of skills(if u donno what i mean watch the Nick Diaz vs Sean Sherk fight in UFC 59). The best thing i do mainly with cardio is i got good friends with alot of the Army/Air Force guys out here at Central Washington so they let me train cardio and weight training with them, its hell but its great.
Anyways i'd love to help anyone who wants it i perfer to talk over aim, that way i can answer questions alot quicker, my names Spit206Fire dont be afraid to ask questions at all, i may be only 20 but i grew up around sports and fighting.
Next 20 mins ill be afk but shoot me msg and ill get back to ya quick, i wont be training again till sunday night.
What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
