Don't overlook the benefits of wrestling. Not only does it develop strength unlike most other disciplines, the work ethic tends to be the strongest. I know that outside of the US wrestling is not as common, but if it is available to you, it is a great place to start and tends to benefit a fighter in all aspects of the game.


P.S. This probably belongs in another forum.

This thread needs to be in the training / nutrition section (mods)? But yeah, there's no such thing as too old to train .. it helps to have a background in HS/Collegiate wrestling etc. but you're still young enough to get into that even. Tim Sylvia, Rich Franklin etc. all started very late, as grown men.

I am sure Koscheck only had like 6 month training in MMA before he went on TUF, and look at him now, he is a top 5 WW. Although he had very strong background in Wrestling before that.

You are definitely not too old to start. However your success will come down to your dedication and work ethic. I highly recommend joining a martial arts school. If you can't find a MMA gym, then look for a BJJ or Muay Thai school. Also, and I can not stress this enough, join your high school's wrestling program. This will test your dedication and teach you a solid work ethic. If you don't like wrestling, you probably won't like MMA.

I'm not a big fan of DVD tutorials in place of instructor led training. I only recommend DVDs in a 'anything is better than nothing' scenario. It is more difficult to unlearn bad behavior than it is to learn good behavior.

Also, make sure you get into solid conditioning. Plyometrics and cardio, at 15 years old you are still growing. You could do light lifting, focusing on high repetitions and improving muscle endurance. Lifting heavy at your age can cause serious joint problems later in life. Getting into these habits at a young age is priceless.

Good luck!

Hell no you're not too old. Go find a good MMA school and get in there. Just train hard and you'll do good bro.
