Hi Guys, just wanted some opinions. I kickboxed for about a year a couple years back. The structure of the class was large groups with mostly technique drills and situational sparring (only jabs or only certain combos). The class was a mix of beginners and intermediate kickboxers. I felt like I learned soem good fundamentals but didn't spar much. I have sinced switched my training and do only brazilian jiu jitsu at a different school. I'm about to start working my standup and mma training so i can get back in the cage for another amateur fight. However at the new school, we don't have formal standup classes. Its just a fighters' class where aspiring pros and amateurs spar under the instruction of our coaches (both are ex pro mma fighters and muay thai kickboxers). My question is this, I feel comfortable with all the basic strikes and defenses, so is only sparring enough? Not having formal classes where we are practicing technique on bags and mits, practicing new combos, and conditioning drills for muscle memory. Do you experienced strikers still attend the group classes or do you just spar and get private lessons? What do you guys think? Should I also take classes at another school that has a formal classes. It would be rather inconvenient and I'd prefer not to, to be honest. Thanks in advance for any opinions.
