    Hey Bullshido!

    Hey everyone, joined the boards a few weeks ago and am enjoying it immensely. I have had an interest in fighting for some time but I was sorely out of shape so I've been working on conditioning and lifting for the past couple years. I think my body is ready now I just need to start training.

    I think I'd like to focus on striking first. Boxing appeals to me initially (although MT seems like a good choice too) then after I've done that for some time I would start grappling.

    So I leave you with two questions...

    1) Anyone know of good boxing gyms in the Phoenix area?
    2) To be a well rounded fighter is it better to learn striking or grappling first or does it not matter?

    Thanks for any insight!

    Thanks for the suggestions...

    I live in N Scottsdale but work near AZ Mills so anywhere in the East Valley would work well.
