Dood im a musician of 11 years(guitar) pluz i also do mma great balance. Just go out and do it. I got by soft side and my aggresive side. At your fight gym you will meet great people and the one asshole.
Its addicting to see yourself become a better you day by day.
Well im in college to its a friday night for me you know what i do? I dont party or go out sinc ei prioritize my training.
It varies from person to person.
I do muay thai myself and my coach says lift if you want but the time doing that, you can be working on technique,sparring, conditioning and etc.
Im not sure if you have ever done a combat sport but do you realize the amount of discipline,willpower and conditioning to even partake in a fight in the ring and or cage.
