Great friendly atmosphere for learning muy thai/kickboxing, jiu-jitsu or judo.

Give them a call and try it out. They're just north of bw8 on Bammel N. Houston.

word of advice, get some running/conditioning in before you start this type of activity. in not you will be wasted after the 10 minutes of adrenaline runs out.

i know you're trying to get into shape but it wont hurt to come in with some stamina already.

I teach MMA for free if the person asking meets my criteria, over off 529 near hwy 6. I have only a few students, very serious. We do muay thai, some bjj when we have enough time and aikido when they lose direction. Try Elite, they have pretty good instructors if you have a loose schedule for all their classes.

No, i promise it only lasts 2 minutes. When i used to teach tkdo, when somone was sparring for the first time, after the first 2 minutes they were dead and couldnt do anything else. Keep in mind that at our school you werent allowed to spar until 2 months of training at our school. Start RUNNING not jogging but RUNNING and then start with a boxing gym like 3 months later.

i train in pasadena at kenny weldons gym, great trainers.... but thats for boxing only......if your interested in MMA style, theres a gym in Baytown ran by Lewis woods, hes a great trainer. He was a NABF champ, world featherweight kickboxing champ, olympic trials finalist ( lost a split decision to Oscar de la Hoya) Ives trains there, hes a guy that fights in UFC, ranked #1 in the world in his weight class..... but look around, just find a gym your comfortable with, and trainers who have the expertice to help you fulfill your potential

The below might be a good place to start. Todd's a good guy, he did his bjj under Eric Williams. One thing to consider when deciding on a gym is the atmosphrere. If you go to a gym where all they do is spar, then your technique will suffer tremendously. If however on the other hand, all you do is situational or technique specific training i.e. 20% of your abilities while training, then you won't know how to apply any technique at full speed. You will essentially run into the problem that many trad. Martial Arts folks run into and that is that they don't know what to do when everything is happening fast (the time when muscle memory would have taken over). With that, I'd say your best bet is to check Todd out at the Loetta location. Also, I'd go to the original gym out on Westheimer just west of the Beltway @ Bona Fitness (Ask for Eric, Hai or Dan [Crazy Dan]). Another pretty important thing is this, commercial mma is not something I would look into. Try to focus on specific elements of fighting and once you've gotten comfortable, branch out...otherwise you'll run the risk of being too watered down ala a fighter who has no real style. Do you want to be a striker or grappler? Technical or brawler? Fast or Strong? These should be things going through your mind when you begin to train. Always remember that technique beats brawn any day of the week (see Jean Jacques Machado in the Abu Dhabi of recent years or Jacare Souza in Abu Dhabi absolute competitions, peep Royce Gracie beating Dan "the Beast" Severn). If you are looking to be a striker: try out Muay Thai and Boxing, if you are more of a Grappler: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for your ground work but definately look into Wrestling or Judo for your takedowns...I love bjj but the takedowns are garbage, Greco-Roman and Freestyle wrestling offer the best techniques for low takedowns and slams while Judo is good for high throws, slams (Can't wait to Uchi mata a muhf***a). Anyway, have fun but remember to leave your ego at the door...I guarantee you that if you get cocky or beside yourself in anyway...you will promptly be humbled...and by the littlest guy in the gym (at Elite, it would probably be JP...he has a pretty sick choking/strangling ability). One last thing, don't continue to go to a gym if all they do is use you as a training dummy. If all the guys are doing is beating up on you and you are not learning any thing in the process ala they occasionally pull you to the side and both tell you what you are doing taht is wrong AND giving advise as to how to improve, it's not a gym that will be conducive to your continued growth in the fight game so look elsewhere.
