Now Ill be very honest, it may have just been that place. I don't know what other MMA places are like. Their may be other places that have a different training style ill actually enjoy. As I explore my cross training options ill find out. I did spend a few months in a hybrid place. It was karate/mma. Basically we did karate deflections with boxing and muay thai thrown in and some submission wrestling. It was there I fell in love with deflections with evasion. To bad it went out o business as well. Besides, im not training for a fight with someone else. Right now the biggest fight I have is my self and I have to beat that guy in the mirror before I can beat anyone else.
