You have a amazing chance. Go for it. 19 is a prime age.

Thanks =D. i come to the conclusion today that i am gonna go for it. i lost my job a few weeks back and plan to use all my time off to train and go to school. but the question i come to now is should i only stick with learning one background(i.e boxing, kickboxing, grappling) or should i start learning multiple ones right away?

A good way to start is by putting in hours in your ground game, which is one difficult art to master.

If you want to start training in MMA 19 is the right time. It would benefit you if you had some kind've training right before that but if you need to start from scratch that is the time. You have a better chance than a 30 year old.

Nope, perfect age to start.

Strong wrestling and good cardio, good luck

Yeah, this is the time to start working on everything. At 19 with no experience you should work on everything before actually starting to fight. Either that or get amateur fights in first.
