    I am gonna have to thankfully decline the first 4 choices. College is definetly not for me, high school was hard enough. I would never do drugs. The AMRY is too tough for me, but the ARMY may be a last ditch thing. If I decided to do military I'd do Marines personally. I want to know if anyone knows of good places to train in the NJ area for MMA. All I got so far is Royler-Adiv BJJ.

    Yeah thats a reasonable thing man, but with me college is pretty much a closed option. Newton is really talented in lots of areas. But even he could not cut it in the AMRY.

    Listen here R.D. go to school! I have been diagnosed with a bunch of learning dissabilities and school kicks my butt, but it's worth it in the long run!
    There are other options but college will help you get there, there are ways to do it so it isint that hard, trust me.

    I know you are giving me good advice man. The thing is that I could never do the kind of stuff that a college degree would get you. So its like I know for most people its very important, but I need to try and get an earliest start as possible in the things I know I am gonna do in life. Still haven't gotten anyone who knows of places in NJ yet.

    My friend got a degree in science, he now is a boat captain and makes 120,000k a year and doesn't use his degree at all!
    But it helped him get his foot in the door.

    I would take a few classes and at least be a part-time student while training in MMA. Having an education will give you something to fall back on in case your fighting career doesn't take off. Though your future is uncertain, at least a degree, even a general studies degree, will do wonders for your resume.

    Its still very early for you. I've changed majors many times throughout my college career before finally hammering down my future.

    Somehow the NOBODY GIVES A SHIT picture just doesn't convey enough sentiment.

    Jk Red Dragon. Gotta have a backup plan apart from an MMA career.

    Remember Tito had his first fight (against Guy Mezger) when he was in college! ;)

    Go to school, join the wrestling team and get an education and then do the MMA thing after school in the evenings!
