    yeah it is kind of expensive but its a huge facility it appears. And yes I'm very serious about MMA. I was in karate classes and a few local tournaments as a kid and I loved every minute of it. Switched a bit to gymnastics in jr high/high school. but now i'm looking to get back into competitions and fighting. I'm training right now to get into better shape so I will have what it takes when i start there (atleast stamina/strength wise).

    Really? You don't think anyone starts in their early 20s and has a decent shot as long as they ain't completely pussy?

    i'm not looking to make a career out of it. I work in the camera lighting department on movies in hollywood as a career and just finished film school. but now i have a lot of spare time. I'm not looking to go to the ufc or pride or anything big obviously. I just want to train and learn as much as possible and hopefully do good in some minor competitions etc.

    oh and pretty much most of my high school life was preperation for mma. i was small and got picked on all the time so i would fight nearly everyday. shit stopped happening when i took a growth spurt from 5'2" to 6'1" though.
