    hmmm, my enrollment is down, maybe I need to start an MMA program *grumble*
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    OP from your description, the instructor is treating you like a live boxing dummy.

    He seems to not know how to bring your skill level up other than hitting you harder or goading.
    As others have said, find another gym/coach.

    true

    Join a proper martial arts dojo, Aikido, Karate or Judo would be a good place to start. Wait for about a year, so you can take a grade or two, and then return to MMA better equipped. That's my advice.

    Go home, punch and kick a pillow duct taped to a wall (because bags are useless) and in three months, go back and dominate.

    All sound advice except I don't believe Aikido will give you any useful tools for MMA competition compared to judo/boxing/kickboxing/bjj etc etc etc. Also, ALWAYS follow Battlefields advice, he is wise beyond his years.

    If you like Striking alot and think (know?) you need better instruction feel free to check out a place that focuses more on Muay Thai...like a Muay Thai gym, boxing gym, e.t.c.
    *edit:* tell us what city and/or state you live in and some1 may look a place up for you! but look it up your self first, or both.....

    Already did. If you look at one of the previous posts, there is a google search of MA schools in MD.

    I don't believe Aikido will give you any useful tools for anything other than a drunk person in a huge hurry to hand you something.

    Aikido also works very well in Lesbian Bikini Oil Wrestling.
