Alright thanks.
I saw 6 and 7 years olds training so I thought that was the right age to start.

Nah its never too late. I was 24 before I joined my first MMA gym. 18 when I got my first taste of Jitz and wrasslin. As far as getting good thats up to you. Yes some people are natural at it but if not you just have to work harder

Perfect age.

I threw my first punch in a boxing class at 12. I had no options over a decade ago it was all karate or boxing. Now you can probably get into some real mma classes and just learn everything from a young age.

You are far far far from too late. But expect to put in a lot more then a year to get good and dont slack off, train hard.

13.. too late?

No way buddy, I would say it's the perfect age. I didnt start until I was 26.

Put in the hard work, dont worry about 'getting good', just enjoy your training...

Not too late. But don't think for a second it takes you a year to get "good." Martial arts are a life-long journey, a lifestyle. You will get better, but it requires determination in training, nutrition, resting, and avoiding the pitfalls of steroids, partying and (too many or wrong) women. Repeat: there's no quick fix.

If by "good" you mean going pro eventually, you have 5 or so years to train before you can really start thinking about going pro. That's plenty of time to train to become good enough.

13...you kidding...like what G said how good you want to become is up to you. Our junior instructor is 17/18 and he spars with me. Extremely talented...I'm bigger...got longer reach, but he's got wicked combos and is a future fighter should he choose to. Only thing is he doesn't really train BJJ for some reason... Anyways I've seen some pretty talented kids in the gym. As the sport grows you'll get a leg up for training that young. It aint easy I'll tell you that much. I learned that training is the equivalent of working. Once you hit the gym you'll know what I'm talking about.

First it's Muay Thai, then BJJ, wrestling, grapping, and each has their own components. On top of that you gotta weight train, core excercise, conditioning (I got good tips from G), and dieting. That's when I realized I was just training for the love of it. To become pro you gotta put in work just like everything else in life.
