New to MMA

Hello to everyone, I have always loved MMA but just never got into until fairly recently, now that I'm hooked I need to know what I can do to get better, I work with some very competent grappler's and I have learned alot from them already, however my striking is weak and I really don't have anybody who knows really what they are doing readily available to help me out so is there anygood resources I should be looking at on my own, drills etc that I culd be doing?
Usually for training I stick to Crossfit/Gymjones style workouts with running and swimming thrown in with a fairly good zone styled diet. In short what things do I need to be doing as a newb? Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: New to MMA

have you checked out any of the heavy bag videos at Rosstraining.com yet? Good spot to start.

Re: New to MMA

It sounds like you've got the conditioning mostly taken care of, so you should focus on training technique. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that your grappling is taken care of - you can never train it enough. I should add that you share a name with a sadly deceased BJJ instructor from California, a very well-respected and kind-hearted man. That aside, have fun with it and let us know how it comes along - CrossFit is sort of built for MMA so you're already ahead of the pack. I see even some top fighters who could benefit from a CF-style approach.

Thanks for the advice I'll check that Website out. as far as saying that my grappling was already taken care of was that I had a few very knowledgeable people working with me who will be able to show me alot.
