    Default Age limit for mm?a...

    Hows it goin all..

    I'l keep this short an sweet.

    at 29, am I 'too old' to consider training for an mma fight,
    be it amateur/semi pro rules or whatever.

    (iv got a feeling the name randy couture will be mentioned a couple times )

    Skills wise im not starting from complete scratch, ( 'in and out' of martial arts such as kick/thai boxing, boxing, over the years.
    although no competitive fights ......

    what options are open to me?

    All opinions appreciated!

    Dude I started completely from scratch at 29 (30 now), so I know where you are coming from with the "am I too old" thing, even if I only get a few amateur fights by the end of this year I'll be chuffed.

    Just keep at it.

    I started training MMA when l was 39, and now 43, have trained in traditional Martial Arts for years mainly TKD which helped alot. Wish l had started at 29 so dont worry just enjoy your training and have some fights. Training for my 4th fight now which is next month.

    Dude Im 40 and train twice a week. Fuck it Randy Couture is 46 and is still world class. You're not too old by a long stretch.

    Its not how long you have trained but the quality, intensity and dedication of your training.
