How can my girlfriend get into MMA fighting/training? My girlfriend is interested in training in MMA fighting. She is 24 years old and looking for a hobby, and it really seems to interest her. The problem is she doesn't even know where to begin, such as who to talk to, what types of classes to take, etc. We live in San Diego so there is no shortage of MMA gyms, but based on reviewing their websites, none offer clear cut details for beginners. Just looking for a little direction, thanks. . .
