yeah i kno what ur saying, and I havent lost my fight In my mind I feel like I can do it, just being 20 years old with other things going on Its taking me 4 ever to figure out if i wanna do that or not. Just tryin to see if its worth it, like i kno allot of people start the basic boxing stuff when they are small im already grown and id have to go through that process.

heck, I'm 28...I started boxing just a couple of months ago. I had a Tai Chi (competitive) background, but this was an entirely different mode for me. So don't worry about starting late or whatever...

I am 24 and thinking about kickboxing. For a while I had the same questions as you did about this. Here it is... George Foreman and Larry Holmes are pushing 60 and still want to fight. Bernard Hopkins is in his 40's, nuff said. Ray Couture of the UFC is around 40. Ken Shamrock is getting up there as well. Amateur boxing will take contestants untill the age of 34. I think that is the same for IKF (Kickboxing), there are also other circuits that just require good physical health, no age requirement. The late Ueshiba founder of Aikido was fighting well into his 80's. Yes it would give you an advantage to have started young. The flipside when young bones are still developing and your weight is constantly changing in other words development goes hand and hand with ability. 20 is the perfect age to start this gives you over a decade to try to go pro if thats what you want. Age plays a part obviously the ideal professional would be about 21-30. With all of the advanced training techniques available including supplements why not make the 30's even 40's strong as well. Hope that helps...

imo everyone should have a discipline. Boxing, kickboxing whatever. You say your a natural athlete, well you should box and prove it. If you truly want to box you will and if you dont... well its your lose.

I was 17 beating up on 30 year old accountants and mail men. Don't be in it just to be in it. Train and take the sport seriously.
