Will joining an mma gym and learning to fight name me less meek and anxious?
I still want to learn it for itself and to compete, but I was just wondering if it'd help make me more assertive instead of a scared little bitch

It won't help you grow a pair to ask Becky to the dance

NO, the Kung-Fu. You need someone who is really trying to kill you, arm-bar you, or hit you in the face, hard. You should test you for real. Get exercise, use google and go visit them. Ask them how many people are in training to become fighters competetive, how often they compete with their competitors, a bar association, or an application really grappling tournaments.

When MMA from a gym competition if you can, bjj if you can not find a gyn MMA, muay Thai, or if you can not find one of them, and boxing as a last resort only.

What is the source of your unease? Are you specifically scared of entering combat, or are you just meek in general? Learning to fight will only help with the first, and learning mma will not help with the first, it will just give you a false sense of confidence because mma has absolutely nothing to do with self defense. Crawling all over someone with your dicks touching will not teach you how to deal with violence in the real world except for the rare case of hostility between you and a single person. mma doesn't teach you to be aware of your environment and the people around you, it doesn't teach you to always be on the lookout for entry and exit points, it doesn't teach you how to position yourself before a fight starts in order to minimize risks, it doesn't teach you to take an opponent by surprise during that phase that occasionally comes up when he's in your face and talking shit and pushing you, it doesn't teach you that your primary goal in a fight is to create a situation that allows you to escape the area altogether rather than to sit there beating the shit out of someone when you could already be running to safety, it doesn't teach you ANYTHING that will raise your chances of survival if someone comes rushing at you with a knife. You can literally learn more about dealing with violence in real life from fucking youtube videos from the likes of nick drossos, luke holloway, and master wong than you can from taking up MMA.

I'm just meek in general
The few times I've been in a fight I've felt amazing so I'm comfortable with that I think

Scientific studies have shown that exercise in general, aids in reducing the effects of negative emotions, and aids in maintaining emotional well being.

If you want to be assertive, educate yourself on being assertive, and practice being assertive.

Joining an MMA gym, you learn your gym's style of MMA, and you learn how to beta people up 1 vs 1 on fancy shock absorbent floors under a strict rule set. What you don't learn is how to be assertive.

>a scared little bitch
If your lack of being assertive is in part due to thinking about how other people could beat you up, then MMA will help with that, to an extent.

yeah he wouldn't learn the true way of fighting on the streets, like your grandmaster at the YMCA knows

Being assertive is a matter of psychology, not martial arts.

>>1474308
I'm more scared of what they'll say or think rather then do
>>
>>1473377
worked for me. you won't take shit from anyone after beating people much bigger than you. just don't think you are Rambo or something after 1 year of tranning or be a dick for no reason.

It's contextual though.
I've seen people allow themselves be bitched out, because they worry that standing their ground will lead to their capacity for violence will be tested. This isn't really a conscious thing though.

If you're comfortable in a physical altercation, you'll be more comfortable moving the interaction towards one, even though 99% of the time it won't actually make it there.

It won't help you talk to girls, but I know plenty of guys who are great with girls, but the moment they get genuinely tested by a man, they crumble.

I also know a lot of guys who could kill most people they meet barehanded, but can't talk to girls they find attractive.

I wanna try it myself OP, like people said, it would help a lot, as you will most likely be able to beat someone that will try to attack you, and you can walk comfortable knowing that.
>>
>>1473377
No it won't, just look at CM Punk.
