Now I'm living in Bristol, I'v been looking for a new place to train Jiu-jitsu I couldn't find anywhere but I did find a very cool MMA gym which is just up the road from me.
I think I could do it especially since I already have a "base style" in Jiu-jitsu, but my question is (to anyone who trains in MMA) what else should I be considering before I take it up?
Do you get badly injured often? I couldn't really afford the time off work to be honest and my job is manual so a broken leg for example would really f'k me up, how often do serious injuries occur in training?
What about fitness? I used to be very fit when I was doing BJJ but not so much now, I havnt trained for about 6 months, should I get back in shape before I attempt to do MMA or should I worry about that afterwards?
