how to get 'a fight'?...
Hows it goin all,
hopefully i wont come across as too eager or out my depth..
I am looking to set myself a goal and to compete in mma (realistic / happy enough with amateur level)..
My question to you all is - how to get myself noticed at the gym?
The answer I know most people will say is "keep the head down, and train"..
But should I (after only 3/4 months of jiu jitsu, interclub boxing, in and out of thai boxing over the years) should I make myself known to the coach(s) at the mma class, and let it be known id like to compete?..
I say the mma class as no doubt like gyms everywhere nowadays, there are different coaches for different disciplines..
Is it better to pipe up and show im keen on stepping up my training, or just plod along on quietly in the hope i get asked?...
I will be completely honest though and say I can be a bit impatient, and can get dis-heartened if I feel im training with no reward / goal...
Im in no real rush though, I know my ground game has to improve, and would train as long as it takes, but im at a stage where I need a goal/ focus!..
Thought id post what my over-active brain was thinking ! and glad of opinions.
let it be known that thats what you want to do as soon as possible so that you can alter your training and dont fall into bad habits. a good stance for boxing for instance would be a massive flaw when it comes to mma, you'll get your leg ripped off or get taken down at will, so it needs adapting
Echo the above.
Good coaches can spot potential talent fairly well. Then they tend to just watch and see whether that potential is developing into the talent they thought they saw.
It can't hurt to let them know you have that ambition (as long as you don't come on way over the top as some of the young lads tend to do), but then you'll still have to knuckle down and let them see what you've got.
