PostSubject: Starting at a local gym   Mon Jul 02, 2012 9:54 pm

I plan on starting an MMA gym. The instructors name is Allen Mohler. He seems rather legit and I have heard good things about him and his team. I am not new to martial arts. But I will say I havent done any competition since I was 14. I am now 21.

My question is... Lets say I want to get back in. I, like almost everyone else, have to work a full time job to make sure I can eat. So I cant be at the gym M-F. The instructor told me that if I want to train with his team, I have to participate 3 out of 7 days a week. I am not thinking I am going to be a pro fighter by any means, but it would be fun to participate in a few tournaments here and there. So, would training on Saturday and Sundays be sufficient, until I can get enough money to train more than 2 days a week? Or would I be wasting my money altogether?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Not trying to be billy badass or anything either. Just looking for new things to try in life.

if your looking to do new things than why not. two days a week for a couple years you can really learn some things. Go for it man.......beats sitting around.

I forgot the word "at".

Just looking for something fun to do. I played Hockey but I dont have time for that anymore. I like competing. Just looking to see if yall had any input since I believe a few of yall go to gyms yourself.
