I'm due to move location soon for my work to a place where I don't really know so I thought a good way to entertain myself and also to get to know some new people would be to start going to some martial arts classes. I've primarily got an interest in BJJ and found a local spot which has BJJ classes, but it's also an 'MMA gym'. Now, I don't aspire to be a pro MMA fighter one day, my job probably wouldn't allow for this, but should I just stick to the BJJ classes or try out MMA? Or both? Is this done often? BJJ one day and then MMA another day in the week? I only really want to go for fitness and a bit of fun, see how that goes and then maybe take part in some tournaments down the line so guessing I should probably just go for BJJ. I can't really afford to be going into work the next day too beaten so MMA probably wouldn't be suitable then! So does anyone go to classes in both? Did you start BJJ and then venture into MMA later on? Also, how do I know if a gym is any good and not a 'McDojo' as you call it. Or do any of the UK people here have experience of anywhere on the South East coast? Thanks guys, sorry for all the questions but I haven't been to a martial arts class since I was in school and don't want to look like some punk who watched Brock Lesnar fight then decided he wants to be in the UFC.
