Just kind of curious as to how you all started training. I've been watching MMA for quite a long time. I live in Coldwater, MI which is the home of Dan Severn. When I was about 13 or 14 I started hearing about him and heard what he did and started renting tapes from a video store for the very first UFC events, back in the good ol days with Shamrock, Gracie, Oleg Tektarov, etc. I've rolled and boxed with some friends of mine over the last year occasionally but never really started training hard. I've lifted weights quite a bit and packed on some muscle and really want to start training regularly. Was there ever a time when you first started training that you just didn't want to get hit but did and just eventually got over the fear of it after being hit a few times? Just looking for some advice or words of wisdom for a beginner.
