Hi everyone im 16 and im looking to take up some training. So my goal is eventually once after I turn 18 is to hopefully have some amatuer fights. So Im looking at this gym near me it has a bunch of different stuff. Do you think starting off taking boxing and brazilian jujitsu classes are good. What do you all think?

Also is this gym any good? http://www.hcextreme.com/

If not Ill try to find someplace better.

Do you thing boxing and bjj is a good place to start or should i look into taking up something else?

Is that a good gym?

seems like a good gym why don't you take the SUDA Mixed Martial Arts class they offer.

I'd recommend reading the stickied thread in this forum called "So you're starting MMA training..."

First thing outside of this is you should sign up for wrestling at your school. Even if you don't make the varsity 1st team (chances are you won't if you've never wrestled before) you will still learn a lot of great stuff. Best of all, you'll learn it FOR FREE!

But yes, boxing and BJJ are two fundamental things for training MMA these days.

For the record it looks like a very good school but you won't know until you take a class.
