Just wondering how long did you guy train b4 u fought? I am about to start train 6 days a week and was thinkin about trying to fight at the end of july. U think that's enough trainin b4 fighting?
Not enough at all. My guys who train 5-6 days a week have to be training 6-9 months before I will do a 12 week work up to get them in the ring (9-12 months total) and I am on the shorter side of total prep time. This is ammy MMA, and most decent coaches want 1-2 years of dedicated training before a first fight.
That's encouraging actually. I'm about to start training myself once I graduate in June (can't now, I'm a varsity athlete), and I was afraid it would take longer than that. If I could be ready for a fight within a year and a half, that would be awesome Currently the only experience I have is some limited BJJ, as well as 10+ years of karate which unfortunately doesn't help too much.
