I would go and train at a good MMA gym if you have the money and time to do so. A good MMA gym will get you in good shape too and you will be a multi-dimensional fighter. You will be able to box like you do now as well as take things to the ground not just with wrestling, but also with Brazalian Jiu Jitsu. I love wrestling and Jiu Jitsu when I was younger and working out with it about a good 11 or 12 years ago.
We would have these muscle headed body builders show up at our gym and challenge us to a fight and we would just take them and man handle them and use them to wipe the gym floor. It demonstrated that being in good shape both cardio and muscle wise, having good technique can trump size and strength most of the time.
When I first started, I would go in and train and get my ass kicked constantly for the first 3 or 4 months, but then I started winning some matches after 4 months and the new guys that came in by that time I would just take them and beat them easily like it was no contest. Guys who used to be able to kick my ass easily before were now getting their asses kicked easily by me after serious hard training for 4 months. But I am not that kind of shape now so I would probably get my ass kicked now. I think you would really enjoy training at a good MMA gym just to be able to stay in good shape, have good confidence and defend yourself especially against some of these younger folks. Plus, it's a lot of fun too!
I have trained in MMA before, I took up MMA training as a senior in high school, as soon as I finished wrestling. I did it for a couple years, and later focused more on boxing and judo. But keep telling me that. I agree, I should, so I maybe need the continuous reminding, lol.
I trained at two different MMA gyms, before. The first one went under, but it was actually just a wrestling mat on the floor of a glass blowing studio for bongs and pipes and stuff, and there's a decent chance they are still there blowing glass, lol. One of the glass blowers was an active fighter at the time, and it was a cool scene, actually.
At the second MMA gym where I trained, 3 cops used to come in there pretty consistently. One of them was about my size, around the 140-150 range, and he used to take it to me in training, and he was a good and humble guy. I remember one time, he came by in full cop uniform to catch the main event of Chuck Liddell-Randy Couture 1, on his lunch break or whatever, at the house where we were watching it, hah, good shit.
Another of the 3 dudes who were cops was a bit bigger than me, but I would actually take it to him. No ill will here, but I remember sparring standup with him a couple times, and I was just hitting him with punches and he couldn't get out of the way. I could see in his face him visibly getting mad, and he would charge in, and I'd just take a half step back and to the side, and nail him with another right hand, lol.
That's just sparring for you, but as a 19 year old kid at the time, I can't deny that I did find it satisfying to punch a cop in the face and not catch charges for it, lol. But, that's what you do in sparring. We were all buddies in the gym, in fact.
