As the title says, while my love and passion is still in boxing, I have a fire to compete in MMA.
The solution may seem obvious at first, but it's not so simple for me.
As I've been fighting under the same gym for almost over 2 years now, I guess I feel a sense of belonging or obligation to my coach and the other fighters there. Normally this would be as simple as going thanks and goodbye, but I wish to continue training my boxing there, the problem with this is, my coach is old school as fuck, and like the other fighters there, they all regard MMA as "dogfighting" or other less than endearing terms.
Also I won't be competing for them anymore, I doubt I'll get the same level of training I did while I was competing.
Help me out Combat forum, what should I do? Should I just man the fuck up and do what I need to do, or is there a more graceful way out of this?
