does anyone have it?
I know tons of people who started later than 23 and a handful that started young, stopped, and restarted in their 30s and 40s. Never too late to enjoy yourself and learn something ;)
Yeah, I wasn't saying 23 was late. However, I wasn't sure what the opinion was. I know a lot of people start in their teens or younger and wanted some perspective. Also, I wanted some one to say that they started later than 23, haha.
My first instructor was 61 when she started. I feel like calling 23 "late" is a bit funny :P. Karate is definitely a life long thing and since you are old enough to appreciate what you are being taught (compared to someone who started when they were 8 or 9), you are going to absorb it much faster.
Has anyone started martial arts late? I'm 23
Found a great site for reproductions of old bare-knuckle boxing posters online. The posters look great and appear to be reasonably priced. Check them out! http://bareknucklesfightingposters.com/
hey guys i have a quick question does anyone have an ebook copy of the bouncer's guide to barroom brawling i could have. my library quit having it to get for some weird reason
I orginal returned to training for health reason, overweight, smoker and a new desk job all contributing factors. And training at first was difficult but rewarding. I have lost weight stopped smoking, you may have an idea about teaching. The head instructor is really great with the kids, but adults so so. That's the area I might like being able to give back to someone in my position.
I am 48 y/o male and have been a student of Kenpo karate for 8 years now. i currently hold rank of brown belt for about a year. I came back to martial arts after many years, student of IsshunRyu as a teenager. My question or concern is I have been come somewhat less than enthusiastic towards my training lately. I don't know if i am burned out after 8 years or it i am losing interest because to test for black belt rank a brown belt must retest at each rank. i enjoyed the lower ranks because it was all new and i was pushed during class. Now it is up to me and I have a hard time staying motivated w/o being pushed. Any suggestions to get me out of the training doldrums and excited to get back into the dojo and train harder.
