    Old Newbie

    Hi bullshido! I do not practice martial arts, but I find it interesting. I don't think that I'll ever start training because I'm 26 years old and I feel like I missed the boat. Is it too late for me?

    Not at all. I've known a good number of people who took up BJJ as late as their 40's and did fine.

    Haha, ok thanks for the pep talk.

    Frankly I don't know many details on any of the different arts. I'm not interested in self defense, because I haven't ever felt like I actually needed it (though I suppose that is a good benefit that comes with the trade.) I am more interested in high endurance and agility over raw strength. Is this too vague or do you have suggestions on what might be a good fit for me?
