Oh my goodness! I didn't even notice that! It am new here and obviously need to learn to look at the dates of the OP to see if someone has resurrected something ancient! Sorry for being totally unhelpful and decades late, haha. I have learned a valuable lesson!
Not to worry. Your post is still pretty much on target. Because 53 isn't too old either. I wrapped a 1st Dan around my wive's waist at the age of 62. We had a woman who brought her grandchild to class for years. When the child lost interest, she joined the class. She was in her 60's when she started, and earned her 1st Dan around 73.

Hi AMH welcome to MT you never to old to start Martial Arts I started 35 Years old at 2013 and Ive been doing American Kenpo karate for 8 years 8 months and my lineage is Parker\Flores Lineage.

1st go to any martial arts near you
2nd observe the instructor and his student and see the way they teach
3 ask question on what kind of Martial arts they teach and see if it can benefit you
4 choose the Martial arts you Can afford
