What’s the best way to find a trainer/gym? 

Rosanna: I know some people who have taken 2 buses and 2 different metro lines just to get to the gym they want. So when you do find the gym that’s right for you don’t be surprised if you will go to an amazing length to stay there. The people you train with are going to become your second family, and you’re going to want to make sure you feel welcome.

I found the gym I train at through my brother. I’d also heard of it before through friends while I was away at college, I just didn’t understand what they were taking about lol. If you have friends in the MMA world you can definitely ask them for an opinion, and every gym is going to have its own culture so it’s truly going to depend on what you’re looking for. Do you want to train at a competition school? Do you want more of a family friendly environment? And one category doesn’t mean it’s not the other. You can go to a competition school that is super welcoming, but also pushes the pace if you want to be a professional fighter.

When you do check out a recommended school, or a school you just Googled cause you live near it, you will know within 15 minutes if it’s the school for you. Everyone wants something different out of their gym.

Now, if you want to be a Professional MMA fighter or BJJ superstar, then you obviously want to go where the big names and the medals are. To be a World Class fighter you need a World Class teacher. However, what is listed above still applies. You want to be at a place that is the right fit for you.

What do you of think Dana White and his stubbornness to Women’s MMA?

Rosanna: I think Dana has a good point, but he just comes across the wrong way saying it. He seems like a blunt person so he’s not going to sugarcoat things to be politically correct. There’s not enough Rousey’s, Tate’s, and Kaufman’s of the world to have a woman’s division. However, it’s getting there. Within the next few years I don’t see how he’ll have any other choice. Plus he’s running out of good male mma fighters that can put on a show. I’ve heard the last few UFC fights were pretty boring. I’ve never seen a boring woman’s mma fight, so if he wants to keep the money and innovation rolling I wouldn’t shelve it the way he has.
