Thread: How much training?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default How much training?

    How long do you think it'll be before i could enter a competition?

    I have been training for years with weights and done a bit of gymnastics and karate. I want to start competing in MMA but there are no gyms close by and i'm not sure how to get into it.

    Any help would be welcome.

    I think it is dependant on the person mate. Everyone is different. I think you need to join a club, tell them of your goals and see how you get on. There are a lot of decent clubs around your area

    I agree with BB, however I would say around 6 months to get up to speed on submissions, transitions and escapes is a fair ammount of time, espcially with no previous experience.

    Team Fulinkazan is based your way, Kings Gym, I am sure Spenna or Scraps or someone will post thier details for you

    I would say 3 months for BJJ comps with set levels, 6 months kickboxing comps, 9 months ammature MMA in a cage...

    I had my first MMA fight after 6 months, but feel it was probably a bit early...
