startin age has really nothin to do with it i have seen events were a guy aged 30 odd had only started fightin at 26 and still whooped ass when i started boxing i was beatin people who had being doing it years before me it all comes down to natural talent, abilitly to learn. and detumanation what the point in statin at 8 you aint gonna take it seriosly at that age i pick up skills very easly and if i find somewere that will train me i know ill be able to beat people who have been doing it longer it happens in mma all the time experiance is only has good as the fighter who posses it e.g ritch franklin used to be a teacher only started fighing less than 5 years ago now he is dominating the middleweight division why natural talent mean while evan tanner who has tons of experance can not seem to hang with the big dogs do not tell me that 20 is to old i know that if i was trainind in mma for 3 to 5 years thats all the time i would need thats all tito had and look at him

That is a really good point, dedication is what matters. But you're going to have to put alot of time in to keep up with people who have been doing this their whole lives. Rich Franklin gave his entire life up and dedicated himself entirely to MMA for 4 years and that kind of dedication doesn't come along very often.

I also think you underestimate the dedication of youths and the heightened ability to learn at a young age.

i get what you are sayin but the fact remains i am 20 i am in my prime and will be for many years to say its a bit to old is sill if i was startin at 30 then you would have a point but like i sead experiance is only as good as the fighter who posses it i feel i have potentiol but will never no untill i give it it go i wish i was american it would be easyer to get into not many people over here are really aware of mma making it hard for me to get into

ice makes a good point. gracie was a 4th degree black belt at the time he beat the black dragon who held 10 different black belts. there are naturals that fight good without training then there are people without talent that learn slow. at 20 if youre a natural I'd say go for it and enjoy it whether you got into the ufc or not but someone over 30 thats not gifted I'd say start training at a local gym if it pleases you but dont consider yourself a badass and expect to get into the ufc.

20 is not too old to start I am 28 and thinking of competeing, granted I ahve been training on and off since I was about 6 so I have that going for me, but I know I need to get in a bit better shape and am planning on entering a few grappling tournaments first to get the feel of competition again

Go to a submission grappling gym.
But you need one that doesnt show you sport Ju Jitsu make sure it's MMA.

Sport jiu-jitsu?!? Are you talking about jiu-jitsu only competitions?

Jiu0jitsu might be a sport but as far as I know all of the schools that I've been to (and that's a few) teach practical jiu-jitsu.

I have been to alot of Gyms and a few of them teaches sitting guard and way's to play from the guard that would get you knocked out in an MMA fight.

Well that's surprising and disappointing. I just assumed that if you were permitted to run a Jiu-jitsu place that you knew what you were doing. . . oh well.

Where abouts in Jersey are these schools (I'm assuming that they're near to you)?
