I have my 1st MMA training session tomorrow and BJJ right after that at Derby City Martial Arts. Im really lookin forward to it. Im kinda nervous because I've never taken any martial arts before. but I know they have some really good fighters there to train with so I know it will be a really good learning experience.

Training was awesome. the No Gi Jui Jitsu was a little hard to get at first because I had trouble figuring out which way to swivle my hips when I was locking in an arm lock. but all together it was a great session.

They're having you work armlocks in your first lesson? Thats weird. Most trainers work positioning first and then adds subs once you can transition and hold positions.

they had us pull guard then get an armlock. and a sweep into a kimura, and how to pass guard.
and during the mma class they taught us the baseball choke, how to get out of a standing guillotine, and rnc. and then we rolled with someone and switched partners every 5 minutes. i did good with that until I had to face a 205lb guy. He beat my ass. but It was great and kinda cool to be in the same room as some guys that are fighting at the RFL show saturday, and a guy (john troyer) who fought Nick the Goat Thompson in the main event of BODOG in february

Some schools just have new students jump in and cycle the lessons around getting back to basics every few days or once a week... I like and dislike this method... for a true beginer it can be very confusing and frustrating espically if they are stuck with another relitive beginer.. I always found putting the newest people with the most experienced people can help cause the more experienced person can sorta semi privately help[ the new person along and help give them a brief basics until the basics lessons come along.. I have not fully decided how in my school I want to handle this... I think the first 15 minutes of every class will be covering basics... something that translates well to what were doing that day...

I liked how they just threw us in there like that, because I catch on really quick so it wasnt to bad for me. when we were rolling, they didnt expect any of us begginers to know anything so they were suprised when I threw up a gogoplata and almost tapped the guy out with it, but the round ended right then. I really need to work on my omaplata defense because one of the bjj guys got me in it twice and forced me to tap. I have no clue how to get out of it

Yea but not everyone has some experience or actually paysd attention to what goes on in MMA and such other then the winner... mopst people who have no idea what they are doing could be overwhelmed and may not come back...

do we have a section for competitions.. I know we have a schools thread... but is there one for actual competitions? if not it might be a good idea.. espically for the much smaller and more local orgs...

I am a brown belt in Kenpo Karate with 3 months MMA training behind me. I had to stop MMA due to expenses but I hope to take it up ASAP. I love MA's and training in them.

How do I get into training and maybe fighting? I am 31 so I am sort of kind of a late bloomer but man I love to hit and get hit and to train and get ripped would be great.

Find a gym in your area. I know there's about 3 in the New York area.

31 is not that late.. espically if you have had prior train it will make it easier... I am 31 myself.

You have done lots of things in your life that’s wonderful! The Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the best combination of martial art and also fastest growing sport in the world. What is the “muay thai”? It’s like a kind of Kung Fu

In case of boxing you should do weight training, punching workouts, sparring, weight lifting and so on.
