    Oh yeah, after about 2 & 1/2 years training, I'm gonna be fighting on Aug 8.

    It's 'interclub' level which means 'controlled contact' (no elbows to head, but everything else is allowed, inc knees to head, elbows to body, all kicks and punches, 3 x 3minutes and no decision is given, but fights do get stopped if someone is getting beaten up. It's sort of the starting level before full contact.

    Shin pads are worn, and head guards and body guards are optional, I prefer not to cos the head guards restrict your vision and body guards restrict your breathing.

    I've missed the last two times our club fought cos of injuries, first thumb, then back, so I'm looking forward to it.

    Not touching alcohol til then & doing LOTS of training.

    Not really.

    It's for fannies.

    Arm Wrestling is where hard men are at. It takes us a lot more to train than these kicking pussies

    Yes.

    I'm doing 4-5 hrs a wk at classes, and almost the same in gym working out.

    To learn you should be doing at least 2 classes a week.

    Good luck by the way lol.

    Got one of the most notorious MMA Gyms in the UK up the road from me, that a mate has been trying to get into for the last 2 years, but the fittness levels required just to get considered are absolutely ridiculous!!!

    Can't remember the name of it, but it is in the most unlikey place in Warboys - Cambridgeshire.

    You heard of it?

    Smash him D, then come back on here and give it the barry about how you devestated him.

    Would be nice to know how you get on though, good luck.

    BOOOOOOOM

    Knockout

    EDIT: on a serious note, good luck mate! Any chance of getting a video to post up here?
