    I got into MMA in the summer and started training in the fall at 18. I turned 19 in March.

    karate at young age, didn't stick with it.


    Boxing at 12, stuck with it for a year and a half.


    Practicing muay thai since around 18 (19 now, been about a year and some months), but I've had braces since I started so I haven't been able to do any serious sparring or ring matches with it... Mostly bag work, focus mitts, and studying moves etc.

    i train in the secrect sect of masterarcane kung fu, where we get together at secret locations and urinate on each other, giving us divine holy powers of the mocking bird. :noes:

    i have been training at this for one hundred and four years, making me grand master of the people who can jump in the air, kick seven times, land then turn into a frog, giving me super kicking powers ..... really its true , and in frog form if i entered any mma tourneys i would smash all contenders with my pixie fairy dust that shines pink when in light, purple in the dark.....shhhh its secret !!!

    I picked up martial arts again when I was 18, then started larning more about real fights and got into reality based stuff at 19. 21 now and been to a few different gyms, but now I'm back to looking for a good place to train.

    Started boxing at 12 but I'd have to say that I took MMA training most seriously starting at 27.
