Sup /fit/, thinking about starting up MMA pretty soon, what say you?
Any tips for beginners before I start up?
Learn grappling and striking techniques. Chin low and hands in front. Be aware of foot placement. You know, common things. Which you probably know seeing as youre wanting to get into it.
Ok so just to be clear, I'm talking about signing up for lessons at a gym, not starting to compete. AN instructor from my MMA gym will be getting in touch with me probably tomorrow.
I was just asking for tips you'd give to a n00b who's about to start lessons or sparring or whatever the term is.
i've been doing muey thai for over a year and a half. If you are doing it just for fun i woudln't do anything that isn't regulated and just a general fast course into mma. So do like jiu jitsu/judo/mueythai
Be about that life if you want to be good. Train every day. If you've never done martial arts before than I suggest researching stuff on your own as well. Some techniques take time to develop, especially kicking.
Do do HIIT. You probably won't be sparring for a while if you've never done any previous training. If they chuck you in against an amateur in your first few weeks then instantly bail as they're just feeding meat to their fighters
