why did you laugh? Around here there isn't squat for boxing/MMA training gyms, it's tough dude... definitely not a joke. This is something he takes serious as hell
I'm sure your "buddy" Jean is serious, JMoney(is it really your buddy or is it you?), but you have to understand that a video of shadow boxing, push ups, and a tattoo isn't really going to impress a lot of the folks out there. Iowa was a hotbed of American MMA at one time not too long ago so finding a gym shouldn't be a huge problem, and without joining a gym there isn't much chance at all of going far in this sport. Tell your buddy(you?) that if he truly is serious about fighting he needs to get to a gym and put in the work and learn. It's easy to say you want to do this, it's another animal actually dedicating yourself to it. I wish him well if he dedicates himself and does things the right way, if not he's probably going to get a lot more negative feedback than positive. Plus it's the internet, you have to expect some negativity and not take it personally.
