Are You Too Old To Study The Martial Arts?

Are you too old to study the martial arts?

You are at a point in your life where you are ready to study the martial arts.

Perhaps it is something that you have been thinking about for a while, or perhaps its something completely new to challenge.


No matter your age, and no matter where you are, take that first step and study the martial arts. The human capacity for growth and improvement is massive in the martial arts.

They are the literal catalyst to transform your life over time.

But what about age?

A few points to consider.

Certainly the martial arts physical and involve physical ability, but they are not sports, even if they have a sporting or competitive component. There is no age that you cap out at or can no longer train at.

Just look to all the old masters.

You start where you are in the martial arts with your physical ability and work from there building strength and flexibility.

You advance at your own pace and build on your own success.

In many ways starting the martial arts a bit later in life has some very positive points.

Often later in life when we have had a taste of success and failure in our lives, built and achieved at a few things, it is easier to plan and execute a plan for success.

Younger students sometimes have a bit more of a challenge mapping out and executing goals in life.

Don’t let your age stop you in the martial arts, find a good school or group and jump in.

Wishing you the best in your journey.
