So I've always been interested in MMA and fighting, just figured I'd start a thread to discuss this sport and let this be a forum for us to answer and ask any questions.
My first question is: How do I pick a MMA/fighting gym? What things should I look for? I've been through some training but very basic stuff and I've been trying to teach myself through books and following drills. I want to get a little more advanced though.
This is not for flasy show karate, this is for fighting, real life event self defense and the like.
EDIT: You may discuss UFC in here!
