I want to win a sanctioned fight by the end of 2012. How do I get started?
I have no prior fighting experience -- I don't even watch fights!
I am thinking MMA, but your welcome to suggest a full-body combat sport that, maybe, doesn't involve someone punching my unprotected head (bjj? wrestling?).
What are my first steps?
What keywords or other resources will help me find a gym/coach/competitions in my area (Bay Area, Cali)?
What should I be reading/watching?
Possibly relevant stats:
I'm male, late-twenties, weigh ~150lbs at 5'6", and have been strength-training for a year.
I bench 140, squat 200, and deadlift 250.
I have an 12-minute mile and can HIIT for 10 minutes. (I get winded fast)
It's okay if I don't actually *win* a fight, so long as have a "fighting" chance.
