    Exclamation Newbie

    Hi poeple,
    not sure if this is in the right section, im sure a mod will move it if needs be.

    Well im 19 and i feel that i need to do something challenging. I however have no experience at all with any kind of MA, Can i start MMA without knowledge and experience of other arts?

    i live in bristol, i heard that dojo does MMA, is this ok with beginners?

    Thanks, Alex.

    you'll be fine mate. its a style of its own now anyway. you do a mix of stand up thai/kick/western boxing, BJJ and wrestling. you dont need any previous experience, just go and do it, you'll love it mate. it may be best to buy a box and gumshield tho'.
