    I had a late late start on fighting
    I did a little boxing in college in 1996

    Not until 2011 that I went full nuts at it lol

    I started in Krav Maga for 4 yrs . I was berg happy but I knew the system had huge flaws !!
    It’s very karate and military system

    I then did 4 yrs of MT and loved it
    I quit in 2017.. I become obsessed with grappling at 43 with zero exp
    I had to jump in but was terrified !!! I was scared
    I have been doing no GI BJJ
    I did not even know what a under hook or toe hold was ??
    Now BJJ showed me zero Take downs and I was the worst in the class
    I knew I had to learn wrestling at age 43
    I hired a coach then my school open up at MMA beg class and every day I have been doing something
    I even do boxing once a week too

    BJJ is hard as physics for me

    I am 44 but super lean
    Don’t let age stop you
