    Finally pulled the trigger...

    Awhile back I said I was going to start mma training and never did....well my first lesson was today. I actually learned a lot more than I thought for one lesson. The guy training me is the real deal, certified Jiu Jitsu blackbelt trainer. He has trained with and met the Gracies. He teaches self defense classes, instructs/teaches law enforcement, etc. I have no intention of being an mma fighter at 47 years old but definitely need to learn some skills and get in better shape. I'm doing one on one lessons, so hopefully I'll learn a little quicker.
    Chances are if you busting a nut, you're having a good time!

    That sounds like a lot of fun man. Good for you for getting out and learning something new. Its always nerve racking at first but it ends up being a lot of fun. For anything that is.

    I've always wanted myself to try something like this too, couple places in my city that do lessons just never got up the nerve to actually try I guess.

    Bravo. I can respect a guy who always tries to better himself or try something new to mix things up. Good luck.

    Thats a whole other topic if memory serves.

    Good on you CCPro BTW privates are the best way to go if you got the coin. Just dont forget to get into the regular classes when you get your legs under you and roll with the commoners they will keep you sharp.

    x2 what BGH said - you'll increase your learning exponentially if you can get in some privates.

    What kind of stand-up is he teaching? Separate coaches for striking and jitz?

    Good on ya' for getting out of yer comfort zone!

    Congrats man, definitely going out of your comfort zone helps us to progress. I took some Jiu jitsu classes in the past, it was a lot of fun and I was in a whole new level of being in shape

    This is great cc! One-on-one must be the fast track to doing this right.

    I thought about taking some basic self-defense classes. It would be nice for me to bridge the distance between bitch running and having to put a round in some dudes chest.
