    You should probably expect some Xtreme cagefighting, some pit fighting, and indoor wall fighting. Before this expect the class to be lead through some calisthenics, something I think is totally for wusses. This 'warm up' is just a waste of time when you be can doing more XTREME stuff like practicing shooting into someone who always knees, or working mount escapes under mixed martial arts superstar Butterbean.

    We warmup with canings. 10-15, then move right into the bareknuckle matches out in the parking lot.

    The best way to win an argument is to avoid it :D

    Now, can anyone give me any advice!? I was hoping to learn some basic striking techniques and a few throws/locks but I imagine sessions will either be based on one or the other?

    Thanks for taking time out to reply,

    Sam

    Most MMA schools have seperate classes for their grappling and striking, and then a third class to combine them and work them together. You'll definitely learn both, but it's just a lot easier to teach them separately and the combine them than it is to try to teach grappling and striking in the same class along with how to integrate them.

    1. Wear all your tapout gear
    2. Wrap you hands before going to class, it will save time.
    3. No matter what they say everyone trains at full speed and full power at all times, so donít hold back.
    4. Trash talk, itís part of the culture, so embrace it and they will embrace you.
    5. Never back down.

    You should also try to pick up any women that might be around the gym. If you happen to drill with one and end up in their guard well thats just an invitation to have wild jiu-jitsu sex with her.


    Other than that.. Keep your mouth shut try to listen to the instructors and try and have fun.
