Im not sure how old you are if your in highschool join the wrestling team.



Im still in school ive done 4 years of Ju Jitsu 6 months of boxing and wrestling since i was 11 but when i get out.you should go to a BJJ school that you have heard is good maybe go to a few comp's and ask what's a nice place.Then work your way up from there.

Around where I live amateur MMA tournaments are held pretty regularly. With the proper training you could fight in amateur bouts for as long as it takes to get noticed.

How to start Fighting?

Walk up to someone and punch them in the face. J/K

You have to start at the bottom. Get the basics down and don't stick to one style. Try to be a well rounded fighter, learn stand up and work on the ground and pound. Join wrestling if you are in High School, eventually if you are good enough you will get recognized.

thats pretty impressive if he does....and a big waste of time lol.....i train at Gracie JiuJitsu and have had the pleasure of meeting quite a few of the legendary family, minus Royce, although if he did come in he would probably barage us with " dis iz my houz, i bild id" lol......but they have shown me some good things, very helpful, and I even got tapped out by Rickson haha thats my claim to fame
