      do it brother, depending on your aptitude you may or may not have enough time to be competative at a pro level but you absolutely have enough time to build confidence and kick the shit out of normies. There's quite a few examples of extremely successful mma fighters that started in their early twenties, and you don't have to be a successful pro fighter for it to be worthwhile.

      thats what they'll teach you at the mma gym.

      >martial arts
      Lmao. They’re basically filled with guys like you, it’s honestly depresses me how often people prove that stereotypes exist for a reason. Why is it that every guy like cannot just pick a normal sport or hobby

      #1. Yes, you can do MMA just fine starting at 22.

      #2. Do a powerbuilding program (in-between powerlifting and bodybuilding). Plus, lots of cardio and flexibility training.

      I personally like bare knuckle boxing. But I'm 30 and don't do that shit anymore. 1 fight a year for 8 years was good enough.

      I started young at martial arts and learned a couple of different branches. I did a few tournaments back in the day but didn't have much interest in going into competitive fighting mostly because I didn't wanna be fricking destroyed mentally and physically by my thirties. Now i'm 30 and am very happy with my decision. So that's my experience with martial arts and what i'm basing my comment on.

      22 years old with no sports background is fine but start now. Barring any physical disabilities that may be undiagnosed you're young enough to do fine. I would put a decent amount of time in before I tried competing though, too many people build confidence too quickly and get their asses handed to them.

      >how can I train explosiveness and control beforehand.

      Depends on what martial art you're going into, speaking generally there's 2 different types. Strike based and grappling based.

      For strike based buy a reflex ball and get good with it to perfect your accuracy, build speed and coordination, and help break yourself of bad habbits like closing your eyes when things come at you. Heavy bag is also great for training explosiveness.

      Grappling is much different, there's no preparation for this, get in, get trained, and spend as much time as possible training with someone at or above your level. About the only preparation I can recommend on this is build as much core strength as you possibly can.

      Good luck anon, don't frick yourself up.

    Fine age. You can be black belt by 30 in peak of your fighting age. But no you should not go professional if you start training at 22, just asking for brain damage for no reason. Just do BJJ or something.

    If you're looking to go pro its not impossible but highly improbable, just need to be careful about training. A lot of guys who wrestled in high school got into MMA later in life and went far, just need to train smart and regularly. Maintain your health.

    Piggybacking off of this I have been thinking about picking up hockey as a pass time but don't know where to get started without embarrassing myself, any advice? I am 26, do know how to skate

      There's probably an adult league run by your city's parks and rec department if you're in an area where hockey is big. If not, I'd check local rinks. It shouldn't matter if you're shit as long as you're honest and upfront about it before you join a team; most people who play sports as part of adult rec leagues are terrible. If there's some form of social media for the league (a discord/ fb group/ etc), you might get a few people who can point you to better resources or practice with you before you play for the first time.

    you can try, and it is definitely worth pursuing a physical hobby like mma, but if you're not naturally athletic or coordinated, it will be an uphill climb to eventually be considered "good". you should do it anyway.

    Just see bodies as mass that can move in efficient and inefficient ways. Don't marry an aesthetic or a style. Read the rules of the sport you want to partake in. Study anatomy and body mechanics.

    You don't need to be athletic for martial arts. You need to be tough and brave tho.
