    Hey all I'm new to striking and MMA in general.

    I just signed up at a gym and am taking boxing twice a week and kick boxing once a week due to school limitations. This gym also offers JJ training but i just don't have the time and i'd rather get the basics of striking down first.

    So anyways i just wanted to post this up to see if i could get any advice from people who have been doing this longer than me.

    Anything at all is great thanks in advance :)

    Not really much advice at this point. Stick with it and train consistently. Don't do any of that "taking a week off" stuff.

    Whatever you do, don't take advice from OpethDrums, seeing as he is a teenage beanpole who has no clue about fighting. That plus he has female genitalia.

    dont have a close mind and dont think that
    fighting is everything in life.

    just take it easy, be respectful toward everyone and have fun.
    watch your temper, patience is a virtue, anger and impatientness is not.
