    >Thats another question on my mind, how old are most of you and how long have you really trained for? BW just said he was 17, how do you now anything at that age?

    I am 27. I was 4 when I started training, dad's idea. I it was just fun then it wasn't until around 7 that I really started understanding. I stayed with many arts over the years and trained at different places across the globe, some good some bad.

    Good to see you here KC!!!!

    So that would make you what? 6, 7 years years old now? <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    Why is this such a hard question? You guys are obviously very experienced, tell us.

    McDojo, is it what you do or is it what you think?

    *how old are most of you and how long have you really trained for?*

    Most of me is 31. Some parts feel 70, some feel 18. :P

    How long have I really trained for? Not very long by any standards that matter. Back when I was in shotokan, I was a complete waste of skin and had no particular desire to be good at anything. I dropped out about a year and a half into it, and I imagine that my instructor became stupider for having known me.

    I have also wrestled and taken aikido, neither above the level I like to refer to as "half-assed."

    I started training BJJ/grappling in earnest about 3 months ago, and I feel like I finally discovered why I was put on earth. I'm also boxing now, as my striking is anemic at best. I'm a decent athlete, so I'm picking up rapidly in both, but I'm nowhere near a respectable level in either art. But they feel like the arts where I just "know" I'm in the right place.

    I have been in quite a few fights, some of which were even "fair," but all that tells me is that I was a lucky man indeed to survive, as I now see that I know very damned little.

    So, in terms of actual martial arts experience, I consider myself a proud three-month white belt. I've only had my head in the game for that long. I've found that, for me, in order to get anything out of this stuff, I have to treat it like a second job. So that's what I do, and I work harder at it than I do my "bill paying" job (or school for that matter).

    That's also why I don't talk smack on anyone else or their art. I'm not good enough to be arrogant yet (also, it's rude). I do feel like I have enough experience in the martial arts community and in life to speak intelligently on *some* matters.

    KC, SDiver,

    Thanks for sharing. I know Kc's history already and Sdiver is honest and consistent. What about the rest of you? Especially all the "experts" ready with a derrogatory comment.

    McDojo, is it what you do or is it what you think?
