Hey guys...I've been on a recent binge of watching MMA matches and clips and I'm loving it. I'm just so amazed at what these guys can do. Anyway, I've always wanted to learn how to fight properly and would just like some advice on the proper path. Basically, I just want to be sure I can defend myself in a streetfight. Doing such a thing competitively also sounds like a ton of a fun to me, as well. I've never been in fight or a real fighting match, and though I have this potentially fabricated notion that I can fight and would do pretty well, I just want to be sure. I guess that comes from play sparring and wrestling with buddies and being able to punch harder (and faster) than all my 200+ lbs. friends...delusional, I know. I'm 25 years old, 6'1", 190 lbs (one parts muscle, two parts flab) and have had pretty poor flexibility my whole life. I can't remember the last time I was able to come close to touching my toes. Muay Thai is really appealing to me, but I feel I'd be limited by my lack of flexibility. I'm pretty athletic and coordinated though, having played sports most of my life. I would just like to know, all these things considered that I've just run down, what would be a good functional fighting style to learn? I know this is a standup forum, but I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks, guys.
