But if you are looking to strictly fight and compete as a UFC type fighter , go to a MMA school and there are plenty of real good ones .
It depends on what each person is looking for . And for me personally Shotokan karate works but for the person that needs to fight alot and roll around then MMA is it . One Day I may try MMA myself for no other reason to broaden my horizons and better my skills.and to have fun.
