You could be 4 foot 3 and it still would be a good time to start training

If I had the chance to start over I'd pick up some ground fighting like wrestling with my karate for a good foundation.

You want to make sure you have LOTS of stamina. It isn't necessarily being able to run 20 miles or whatever. To train for endurance, just try to keep your target heart rate up for whatever goal you want it to be. For example, you want your target heart rate to be 160 bpm for 45 minutes. Easy exercises are jogging, jump rope, or even swimming.

Diet is also very important. You want to make sure you are eating plenty of protein to build muscle. You want to make sure you stay lean. (Fat on your body is just extra weight and does nothing but slow you down)

Great ways to stay lean is to find foods that fill you up and has no calories. Such as vegetables/lean meats/ etc.

Hope these help you out.
