Hi guys, I was just looking for some feedback. I have no background in any martial art or combat sport (the reason I am posting I guess). I would like to start training in something--maybe BJJ or maybe something else--but I am not really sure yet. What I am curious about is if it is common and acceptable to train as hobby. I don't have any interest in competing or fighting in organized bouts. I just like to try new things and have an interest in MMA. Are gyms usually cool about total amateurs? Is it a situation where it depends on the gym? Are there any disciplines that are particularly friendly or unfriendly to people who are training more for fun? Any thoughts from more experienced people would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
