Hey everyone. My name is Ell (short for Elliot), I'm 18 years old and I live in the UK and I'm a HUGE fan of MMA/UFC. I've always been inspired to get myself involved in some kind of Martial Art, but I haven't got round to it. However, since finishing this 12th season of the Ultimate Fighter, I feel like I'm ready to begin training.
(If these questions belong somewhere else, if you would be kind enough to re-direct me, it'd be very much appreciated!)
I'd just like to ask, what is the best martial art to get involved in? Around my area there are Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Muay Thai & Taekwondo gyms. Where am I best to start if I want to further my career in MMA?
And secondly, I'm 18 years old already, am I too old to begin training towards an MMA career?
While watching TUF12, GSP & Jonathon Brookins have completely inspired me to finally get myself down to a gym and get myself motivated! I have been hitting the gym (weights) for 2 years now though, so I'm confident I have a lot of strength.
Thanks a lot!
