Part of it all depends on you and your natural skill level and how hard you train.. you might be ready for amature events in less then a year.. or it might take 3-4... all depends on how well you grap the knowledge and learn to apply it. but I would say at least a year for an amature event

well like I said it all depends on your skill and everything.. If I were going to compete With where I am at I could be competeing in 6 months.. but well I have lots of other expereince in martil arts. not sure what you have.. but for an amature event if you train sersiously I would say one year minimum.. 1-3 on average.. it all deepnds on your expereince level and how hard you train

So I am only turning 16 and wants to start fighting but my parents won't get me into classes because they don't support me in that career, the only thing I am doing is high school wrestling which isn't enough. Does anyone have any suggestions?

started with
Judo when I was about 5 or 6.. took that for a couple years
Then I studied some Muay Thai, Capoeria, and Japanese style jujitsu with freinds who studied those arts
THen I took Ninjitsu but the instructor taught us other styles as well more jujitsu as well. I also practiced with some of the guys on my school wrestling team.
I have also studided a few forms of kempo ( I do not recall the style off hte top of my head I have it at home,) but its focus was more of the samurai arts, alot of Akido mixed in from what I understand.
Then since then I have studided a little Inshryu(sp?) and Tang Soo Do.
granted this is over basicly a 23 year period, plus I have played hockey, soccer, baseball, tennis lacrosse football and all kinds of other sports
