    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Start small. Find a garage and create a website. Make it a study group and fight team. People will slowly filter in, by then you should have the experience and knowledge to run a small school.

    Thats how I did it.

    Now, I run a school part-time. Its alot of work, but worth it.

    AS it has been said, running aschool is a big taking, i had a school some years back with a friend, we where both just about right out of high school and didn't dick about running a place. So, it tanked on us pretty quicklly.

    As a rule of thumb, you might want to have enough capital to be able to keep the place open for about a 16-18 months without a single person walking in the door.

    And you failed again. So much for your business plan.

    modern combatives in Berkeley teaches MMA 'lite' - they are not a fighter's gym per se but teach a standard SBGi standup/clinch/ground game.

    pacific ringsports in downtown Oakland teaches very respectable boxing and muay thai, and has just added a MMA class.

    Cesar Gracies school is in Pleasant Hill. David Terrell, Nick Diaz and Jake Shields (as well as a bunch of other fighters) train out of there. I think that would qualify it as an MMA school.
