    I'd say physical development is more important, assuming you've got a suitable mentality. I started at 19 fighting a 30 year old, who's much smaller than me.

    In KOTC 1 they announced him as being 17 years old in his fight with Chris Brennan.

    In a Gomi HL vid, he was at a gym where the kids were looked to be around 10 years old. He was kind of fun sparring them. :dunno: Japanese people always start stuff early, they have like a baseball school for kids who strictly train to play baseball.
