    This might apply to you, might not.

    My error in choosing my first school was that i chose a MT gym which has the best reputation in my city for producing top pro fighters. Now you are probably thinking.. what the hell is wrong with this? Simply put the owner is completely unwilling to put someone through amateur competition unless its a short boost of experience before pro, we had a few people who have been wanting to fight amateur for 4+ years but have not been given the opportunity yet. The classes also consist of 40 people per trainer which even with his impressive Muay Thai knowledge makes it very hard to correct individuals mistakes.

    In contrast, this new gym i am at are hungry for fighters and offer more trainer to fighter ratio while also are keen to get their reputation out there (i.e. have their amateur fighters win fights).

    So basically what Siberia said, make sure the gym is in line with what YOU want to achieve, whether that be fitness, self defense or competition.

    mma in adelaide

    saw your post thought i'd reply - not sure if you've found a place in adelaide. if you have, ignore this message. if you haven't try ICMA , 96 grange road Welland. speak to gandmaster master Vince Palumbo about training in mixed martial arts.

    he offers training in the following:
    doce pares stick fighting
    kickboxing
    boxing
    karate
    jujitsu

    i recommend the boxing, kickboxing and stick fighting. the training will definately get you on the right track, even as a beginner.


    hope this helps

    Hi guys.

    We train MMA at the old Railway station, railway terrace, Willunga.

    Tuesdays 4-6pm
    Thursdays 4-6pm

    Some saturdays we have an open mat 4pm.

    At the Yandiah log cabin, Oswin Court at Morphet vale
    which is the SA amateur wrestling HQ we also have MMA
    on friday nights 6pm. Along with the Greco Roman and
    Freestyle wrestling training.

    I have coached several MMA fighters that still train at
    our gym.

    Dave Lock and Traile coach MMA as part of their sylabus
    they have a gym at the intersection of South Road and
    Cross Roads...Dave has fought MMA as well as kick boxing.

    Brad Thompson who fights MMA trains BJJ with the SA BJJ
    guys out north. They do both BJJ and no gi.

    MMA is a combat sport and is something that involves hard
    work and sweating. It is not a system or martial art.

    I suggest you have a look around and see what is best
    for you. Have fun with it.

    Take care and all the best

    Kym

    Some if not all MMA schools have strength and conditioning classes, so you might not need to go to the gym, unless its for your personal bodybuilding.

    i believed that MMA is all about conditioning, etc.? well i don't only want to focus in krav but i also want to take on BJJ as they offer it in this gym (http://www.sdtactics.com.au/)... so yeah do you think this is a good fighting system? and yes assuming that i train hard (mostly around 1-3hrs a day --> usually i do 1-2 hrs of weights and cardio in the gym) then do 1 hr punchingbags, skipping, kicking, speedballs, and also other things) and ontop of this i would like to do techniques hence why im asking for a good gym (this is perday).. do you think this is enough training for me if i want to compete? but on the current state i cant do more as i have uni

    ohh and one more thing.. these are the gyms i'm looking at
    http://www.sdtactics.com.au/
    http://www.extremecombat.com.au/
    dude listen to the people here and they will guide you. I'm new to the forum but been in bjj for about 3 years under Machado. Go, and I mean run to the sdtactis school. there is a bjj blackbelt there and right up front he tells you who he's under, key thing, any Machado blackbelt is gonna be top notch.
