    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.

    hi Mate

    I'm thirty myself I hope to be fighting my first Am fight just after my 31st birthday. I'm not planning on fighting pro but I reckon I have a few years of am competition in me. I have to train that bit harder than teh younger guys but thats part of it. The main thing is to just enjoy yourself mate my class has guys over fourty who compete and they do more than alright.

    Hey I'm almost 38 & did my first grappling comp last year, loved it & it gave me something to really train hard for. We've now got a 46 year old lady training at our gym, she's an ex World Muay Thai Champ & has decided to train for an MMA fight......she's awesome & is picking up groundwork at an incredibly fast rate!!! Age is merely a number my friend, and as Sammye said "with maturity you can apply yourself better"!

    Go for it!!! x

    A mate of mine at the gym started at 30sih(might have been 31). Now he's 34 and 4-0 as a pro.

    IMHO its more about what inuries you have and the wear and tear on your body rather than simply how old you are.
