    What to learn.

    It recommended to go to a BJJ Gym and digest as much of that before going on to learn anything else, if training to compete one day?

    Um.

    Are you asking if bjj is a good base for a grappling or mma competition? If so, then yes.

    If you are asking what the particular things you should focus on, that really depends on your instructor and your own physical capabilities

    I you want to compete in MMA you should train some sort of striking at the same time as your grappling, not one and then the other.

    Maybe you should try out a few different styles of MA and find out what works for you?

    I agree with pretty much everyone: BJJ is a good base for MMA/Submission grappling/No-Gi, but that doesn't mean it's the best thing for you. You may be better at Full-Contact Karate or a weapons-based art, so check around, and please keep an open mind. By the way, welcome to the forums.
