    31 Years Old Too Old to Start with BJJ or Muay Thai?

    Im not going to competitions but just wanna have a good striking/grappling experience. If they will let me join competitions, why not? But its not my main reason.

    Am I too old to learn and cant compete with younger guys or just go?
    See you soon Duju, My Dog, My Companion, My Best Friend... I really really miss you. I love you so much.

    You're either Christmas, or against us!

    30s like us dont get outgrappled by younger folks more often than not? Lets admit it, theyre faster and hungrier.

    If you wanted to compete in jiu jitsu it wouldn't be a problem at. My instructor is 46 and competes still and does fine. Just take care of your body, eat well, and don't over do it. Believe me you can kick our young asses too! The great thing about jiu jitsu technique always wins and jiu jitsu means "the soft art". Mostly white belts fight very tough because they are not used to rolling with technique and being fluid.. I think you will do just fine my friend!

    They also gas early because of lack of discipline. Thats the good thing about bjj. Good discipline and a decent gas tank can get you far against a spazzer.

    Never.

    I supervise sparring classes with dudes in their 50's whooping the asses of guys in their twenties! Absolutely love seeing up themself twenty-somethings thinking they're what's-what then getting their ass handed to them by guys old enough to be their dad. Lets just say the "supervising" slips a little when that happens

ENtered my first comp 5 weeks ago and loved it, won the "Masters" SHW division. only one opponenet but I beat him twice

    to echo what's been said - no, you're not too old.

    Skill in bjj goes pretty far when it comes to age vs youth. If you have decent cardio and work it like a chess match rather than checkers, you'll do well.
    Striking you may not be as quick as some of the younger guys, but that's not to say you won't be able to hold your own at the very least.

    Also with grappling tournaments, you'll have the option of competing by age group as well as weight class if you like.

    that all being said, just go in and enjoy the new hobby...if you get a chance to compete that's just the cherry on top.
    "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard"

    Psalms 144:1
    Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

    Bench 315 lbs for 5 (never got around to maxing out at that time)
    Deadlifts - 425 lbs for a single
    Squats - 405 lbs for a single

    If you end up banned, you have no one to blame but yourself.

    Age is mostly in the head
    ok, body will notice years over time, but nothing to worry about. In fact, you can easily compensate 'age' with discipline in and out of the gym and with more strength - most guys that I know are stronger in thirties than twenties. Stamina is maybe lower, but as someone already said - discipline and you will do fine

    beside - I am almost forty years 'young' and I feel stronger and stronger (selfdeception, here I come )

    No way are you too old. (Is there even such a thing)? We have guys just started out in their 50's+ at our gym. Good luck brother.

    We have plenty of guys that are 50+ training at our gym. There is no such thing as too old to train BJJ, it's called the gentle art for a reason, everyone can do it. I'd definitely suggest starting, I'm 23, and a purple belt, and when you first start, you'll get smashed whether you're 20 or 60 :P

    Just to chime in on what everyone else is saying. I'm almost 31, and I'm in better shape than most people I meet who are 20-30. I know this adage is used constantly, but "Age is just a number". Go train, and have a great time doing it! I'm warning you though, it's very addicting Goodluck!!

    ju-jistzu is more about technique, maui thai is very taxing, but you will be able to get the hang of either of them eventually, in fact the place where I train maui thai, there is a bloke who is, get this....57! he's a nut case, just keeps going and going, he's fitter than most of the guys there, ( except the experienced fighters ).

    have a go at both, you will love how much there is to learn!

    you're never too old. 31 not that old. you start losing testosterone as early as your late twenties, so I mean, as long as your not competing against twenty two year olds. it will give you a good advantage in bar fights, which is what really matters. MMA being primarily a sport for homosexuals.

    I just started at 34 and honestly I couldn't care less if I compete or not right now. I'm just in it to have fun and fun it is. I'm having the time of my life. Although learning how to hold my ground if the need should ever arise is pretty nice as well.

    I'd agree with what others have said. Muay Thai may be a lot harder to do at that age (depending on your fitness, you might be an ex-Seal for all I know and be like Sam Fisher haha) but it's still possible, you just have to train hard, eat smart and rest well.

    Just a note bro...I am 31 this summer and I will be starting kickboxing soon and BJJ in the fall. I feel the same way about competitions. I don't plan on doing any and don't really care but if the opportunity is there and I am doing decent I would have no problem giving it ago. I wouldn't let age be an issue. It's all about conditioning. I am in far better shape now then virtually every early 20's person I know (outside of a few college athletes). Experience and discipline goes along way. Anyways, just wanted to get in here to say go for it and you're not the only one bro.

    No your definetly not too old. My dad started when he was 44 and he loved it. He stopped after a few years just because he had to work so much. I am starting in the late summer and im really excited.

    My main teacher turned 37 year old. He told me that he started training BJJ at the age of 31 and he is now into the competing scene. He is currently a purple belt and just won the Ontario Open, a couple of months ago!

    Wrestlers typically peak at 30-35, add a couple years if you have good genes and are fit and NOT beaten down from injury. You're fine and can compete at any level if you have the skill to do so.

    If you competed, you would compete in your age and experience group. I don't know them off the top of my head, but Senior group is 35+, so you are easily young enough to start at 31.

    I know two guys who started judo in their late 30's and another two who started BJJ in their mid 30's. They are all black belts now. They inspired me to start training again at 32. Train smart and have fun.

    The best triathlete in the world is 40

    there is someone well into his 40's famous for running ultramarathons.

    There are successful strongmen into their 40's

    Several good mma guys didnt start till late. Dan Cormier, couture, henderson. One of the best boxers on the planet is nearing 50 (it is a deeper sport) Bernard hopkins.

    Competing into older age is more about taking care of yourself. Most athletes peak in their mid 30's

    The people who age fast are usually the ones who start very young or have harsh lifestyles outside of the gym.
