You have to work the look.

It's going to be a bit of a trip, but you should head to the Boxing Clinic or Pedro Bessa and take a few MMA classes there to get an idea of what to compare your training with.

Sometimes when you train a hybrid (most MMA), you get a good mix and sometimes not. I left Judo training after 7 or 8 weeks, merely because at my amoeba-level, we spent 90% of our time stretching and working breakfalls. I was young & dumb and it was all foreign to me.
Had I known then what I know now, I would have stuck it out. I am also able to see now that it was a key ingredient and IMHO, should be trained at some level in MMA.
Several years ago, I started learning at the closest place I could find with legitimate instructors. http://www.jiujitsuconcepts.com/Site_3/Home.html It was an hour drive each way, but at that time, they also had Judo classes (I had flashbacks) and the BJJ side of the house did breakfalls after warm-ups.
I've never done any formal MMA, and as a novice level (not even a stripe) in BJJ, my opinion means little, but as always, I will share it LOL.
