    30 started BJJ when I was 22. Started Muay Thai when I was 16, stopped competing in kick boxing for the most part after I got my blue belt. I still consider myself a better striker than grappler.

    Whenever you're feeling old, remember this guy to feel young again. He started in his 80s.

    Started Judo when i was 8 yers old until i was11. Gave me a solid base, learning to keep balance and use leverage,general grappling and submissions etc..started doing a little bit of sub grappling more in the style of Jiu Jitsu in the last 3-4 years, im not part of a sub grappling camp/class but the people i have trained with are all bar one experienced and formally trained to a high degree.
    Now in the last year i have started to learn Muay thai from a couple friends who have all trained Muay thai for longer then ive had hair on my head lolz.

    * i aim to compete in either judo or amatuer Muay thai within the next year and a half depending on my situation work wise*

    I am 26 and started BJJ the week after my 26th birthday, but I wrestled 7th-12th grade and it seems like that was helpful
