Style: This and that
I honestly haven't competed since my Tang Soo Do days back in high school. I was OK, nothing special. Currently I am training with some local MMA guys, all of whom are amateur fighters, and with a high ranking Kajukenbo instructor who did full contact in his youth and has trained several really good fighters, including a few pros. He has said a few times that he could help train me for the ring, but right now I'm concentrating more on a street-fighting skillset.
Why don't I fight competitively? Two reasons. First of all, I just got back into MA after several years and am still dusting off the cobwebs. Second is a matter of liability. I am about to start a career in law enforcement and might be working in some tough neighborhoods. If I end up having to rough up a resisting suspect and have to explain myself in court, the attorney for the other side could tear me apart if they find out that I compete in MMA. There is still so much of a "human cockfighting" stigma among the general public that it could certainly be used to paint me as some sort of knuckle-dragging barbarian in the eyes of a jury.
If my ground game gets up to snuff I might consider doing some grappling competitions and the like, but I am not planning that far ahead right now. For the time being I will have to use sparring as a test of my skill.
