If you train hard in any art (or any contact sport for that matter) you'll get injured. Stop posting on the internet and try class. Today.

Yes, because you'll train all the basic aspects of combat: wrestling, submissions, striking. But if you want a sampler platter, it would be better to try class at every martial arts gym in town. There are other kinds of arts not covered by MMA, largely because they mostly don't work against resisting opponents or outside of extremely specific circumstances (e.g. law enforcement).

comment How does a non-grappler train to be ready to avoid grappling in a real-world situation?
If grappling is so bad, why wouldn't you train it so you're not completely helpless when your "just step back" approach fails, as any technique inevitably does?
