    For the new year I was thinking of starting a type of MA...but I don't know what to choose..

    i've pretty much decided on going to joslins http://www.joslinskarate.com/left.htm because i'veheard it's good and has a good reputation around this area, also my buddy is there right not taking the MMA.

    I was considering MMA but kinda worried that because I have no previous MA experience that it's to spread out rather than focusing on 1 area such as BJJ. Should I just focus on 1 area like BJJ or kickboxing then pick up something else? or what?

    there are different schools of thought.

    what are you looking to get out of it?

    you want to compete in anything?

    I'm in it for the fun factor I guess...as well as the discipline/ build up confidence...also I plan on becomg a police officer so i guess something in MA will help..

    and eventually I plan on competing if I enjoy it enough and devote myself.

    Alot of police officers train in BJJ. It's great for controlling people.
