Most importantly, find an instructor/facilitator who will respect your Personal Combat and place it above all else in their priortization of your training needs. Most coaches and/or martial art instructors/teachers don't even know how that works.

Say your 'major' is combatives, and you already have good partners/equipment/facilities to cover mindset, athleticism, fundamental skills, key moves, strategies, tactics, biomechanics, emotional intent etc. for the aforementioned specific training needs and objectives...Would you still spend time on MMA, and why?

...Would you still spend time on MMA, and why?
How much time out of your total allotted training time would you devote to MMA?
What areas would you focus on, specifically?
