First MMA class haha

Ok so I finally went to the MMA session. But I did it absolutely WRONG :BangHead:

I have no prior fighting experience, and I happened to go for my first day with a group of 8 guys who have been training for 2+ years (why they let me in I still do not know, I guess they needed a punching bag)

Not only that, I "just so happened" to get paired up with a guy (mind you I'm 5'10" 170) that is 6'3" ~215 but pretty solid all around and has that I know of at least 2 years of MMA experience.

Welllllllllll

Its an hour class, and it started out ok until we put the small gloves on and started punching for real. I had the COMPLETE wrong mind frame thinking that "its training so they aren't going all out" but I forgot that they train for stuff like UFC so they train ALL OUT. Well I got banged around by the 6ft 3 guy and for some reason couldn't get myself to really punch back hard becuase like I said this was my first experience with fight training and I felt like, "this is just practice I can't hit him that hard", BUT he was hitting me THAT hard.hahaha

I had a friend come to watch and he said he couldn't believe I took all those punches from that guy and that I actually rocked him once. I realized how hard I was getting hit and I threw 2 REAL punches the whole time, one which almost made him stumble, but being experienced he came back and hit me pretty hard.

I wore out quick and sat some rounds out because I was being realistic with myself and knew I would be doing more harm than good trying to train with this cat any more. The instructer isn't from here and he actually has an MMA record and is figiting in Ecuador on September 1, too bad I don't remember his name.

Anyway If you think you have , go to an MMA class and sparr with experienced fighters. It probably wasn't the smartest thing I've done, but I think I held my own pretty good considering my circumstances

p.s. I wouldn't be writing this or posting this pic if i was really that embarassed, taking all counts into effect I think it wasn't that bad, instructor said they usually have at least one person get knocked out each sessions. I wish I would of realized HOW hardcore it was going to be before I started, then MAYBE I would of felt a little better about it.

Sorry for the lame pic.

your first few weeks will be pretty intense but once you get your endurance you it will get....not easier.....but better. I have been in MMA(mostly BJJ) for a little over a year now and i ****in love it. I actually had to take the last month off due to a ankle/toe/foot injury and its killing me not being able to train. It is the only legal way i know of that i can really release my rage and it feels good

:notworthy
props for sticking it out and not quitting. Everything takes time and training. Stick with it a little longer then you might lessen the the pain/blow.

Nice! Glad you enjoyed it. And whether you got your kicked or not is irrelevant, you had the to get in there and that's what most important. I'd say go take a few boxing classes in conjunction with doing the MMA sessions so you'll atleast have a platform to build on. Most guys will have atleast done some form of prior training (boxing, muay thai, bjj, wrestling, etc) before jumping in the ring so you may be a bit behind the power curve but iz aight, sounds like you didn't do so bad. Anyway, you may want to consider another gym...most times, if a guy is inexperienced, you don't lay into him. You have to "introduce" him to the ring, otherwise, he won't train very long and you lose training partners that way. Based on what you were saying, it sounds as if you were being used as a confidence booster which, in my book, is utter bullshyt...but whatever! Stay in it, never get discouraged and remember to check your ego at the door.

So yea. My head hurts this morning where I have a lump, also my neck is a little sore. My jaw is fine and the scrape from the guys gloves burns a little but neosporin works fine for that.

My nose stopped bleeding almost as soon as I stopped getting punched, so thats all good.

Lol, I don't know if I want to say what gym it is becuase someone here might of been there last night, and then it WOULD turn into an embarassing thread for me. I know the aftermath wasn't that bad, and I didn't get hurt, but that doesn't mean it didn't LOOK ugly.

Ahhhh fugg it, I went to Elite Martial Arts and took their MMA class. I would just like to reiterate(sp?) that it was my first time in ANY type of martial arts course lol.

Dude, nobody can talk to you unless they've tried it themselves. IMO it's just like any other sport ... you're not gonna go in your first time and be the best one there.

I wouldn't mind trying it out but I'm way outta shape at this point. Plus I can't be walking around the office with black eyes and .

Hahha. I appreciate it denhou. You're right though. I'm really am glad I didn't get a black eye too, scratch on the face and bump on the head is ok with me considering what I did.

I'de like to start from the beggining and get some background in different things and try it again, its fun...but you're totally right....I'm not completely out of shape becuase I have been playing college baseball for the last 2 1/2 years, but I came home in December and have been running off and on, and it doesn't take a scientist to tell you that 1 hour of fighting, with 30 second breaks is going to tired out MOST people...I hope hahaha

Man, that place is known around town to be a very good school to train at (I train BJJ and have competed in a tournament Eric hosted). I'm just surprised they didn't have any type of "beginner" class for you and that they just threw you in with the more experienced guys on your first day.

I prefer BJJ b/c I'm already too ugly as it is... I don't need to add to it by getting punched and beat up. lol.

And yes, it's a of a full-body workout. I went to the gym for 13 years and was never in the shape I am in now, and I ONLY do BJJ... no gym/weights/etc.

Keep with it (whichever art you decide to stick with).

Great school. I take back what I said about finding a new school. Eric's a great instructor but you also have Hai, Joe, Forrest Ed and few others that are all willing to help with anything. I am however surprised that they through you in with the wolves the first day, I seriously think you must have erked somebody. Atleast you didn't have to train with Bruce (6'5 265+lbs), he's kicked my on many occasions. Yup, keep with it tho, I will say again too...find yourself a platform whether it be Muay Thai, Wrestling, BJJ, Judo or whatever. It's helps when stepping in with other guys, atleast you have some ground to stand on. Just have to figure out if you're more of a striker or a grappler...
