Hi everybody im from montreal quebec since im kid ive play hockey but my life change .. my dad fall of his three at the deer hunt in 2011 and hockey wasn't really the right sport for my mindset ! I beat some one at school if was so upset about everything !! after that I think about join the sport and since september I do some jujitsu , muay thai ... I love that !! to fight with a teacher and some rules , ive got a different vision of the life , of respect and effort. Ive got some question for you guys that doing this for years , too shy to tell my sensei ; can I at my age work really hard and maybe have a career in this sport ? I mean can u actually start the sport at this age and work really hard cause i know its a though sport and possibly have a paycheck from it ... thank you all !!

Randy Couture started MM at like 33 or some shit.

I'm 22 with a pretty serious leg injury, and I still think I can be UFC champion, so be optimistic haha.

17 is the perfect age to start man. Take out your anger in the gym so it stays there.
