Hi Michigan MMA enthusiasts. After being a fan for years I have been contemplating getting in a gym to train. I don't know if I'd ever be willing to compete BUT I'd like to learn and train for self defense purposes and physical fitness. I took Karate lessons for a year when I was kid, lol, but now I really want to get into it seriously so I can get a good work out. Can anyone recommend some gyms to check out? I'm not very young anymore but I think it would be good for me on multiple levels. Help a brother out. Where's a good starting spot for a guy with zero experience. Like I stated before, I don't think I want to compete but I'd really love to learn and work with quality people in a positive environment. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks UGers. Phone Post

all three places are good to train with. I think Don has the most in the form of teaching to offer, but Dom is no slouch and James at stares and strikes is a great stand-up striking coach. S&S tend to compete in amateur fights more than the others but that's not saying they go hard all the time. I've trained with James and he treats people the same. You lean quick with him.
just my opinion which is worth is weight in shit. just sayin.
