Alright so i'll start off by giving you guys a little bit about my background. I'm a small guy. I'm about 5'5 and weighing right now at about 125 pounds. I recently took a year off of training and am still in pretty good shape but I wanna get in better shape. I took kyokushin karate for 3 years (great school I love that sport) that focused a lot on conditioning, repetition of technique and sparring. The only thing that I didn't like was the lack of head punches. I also trained in a local MMA class(alright gym but a lot of testosterone and very expensive) for about a year and a half. Then I took a year off because of personal issues. The mma class mostly focused mainly on jujitsu but also muay thai so I got sparring in with head shots regularly to supplement the karate. My main strengths were decent power, quick, good leg kicks. Also I was a good wrestler with alright submissions. I was never THE BEST in class because of my size but I was well respected and I think for my size i'd be a very good opponent for that weight class. I'm thinking of getting back into the game but i'm gonna start with just weight training at the gym for about 6-9 months so I can enter back in prime shape. After those months I am gonna take either kickboxing or boxing(I cant decide. I really would love to improve my hands because of the lack of head punches in karate but I think I should continue working on my kicks as well. Opinions?) as well as wrestling for grappling.(Greco Roman) Since i'm 125 right now i'm wondering what weight I should move up to. If I am serious about the training for the next year or two I can definatly compete in karate, kickboxing or mma. I won first place at a karate tournament once. I could compete in karate or kickboxing and i've competed before but for mma I would have to move up to 135. Do you think I should just keep at kickboxing and karate tournaments and maintain my weight(I think its an advantage for me since i'm very strong at this weight) or do you think I should train hard for a year or two and try to compete in MMA at 135? I've never competed at this weight before. I'm 18 years old btw. So I do have experience but I just don't really know which route to go.
