    Started wrestling before I realized I was wrestling. Can't remember how old at all but started competing at age 7 or 8. Stopped competing in high school but continued to train sporadically. Started TKD at 21 for a while then took a long break to become a fat, lazy bum. Started TKD again at 33. Still doing TKD at 36 and will be adding BJJ once my current injuries heal (found a place 10 mins from home instead of 20-25 mins from home, thankfully).

    kyokushin at 10, jjj and judo.
    gap from 14 til 20 in which i done several stuff, but nothing serious.
    20 picked up jjj and judo again along with some shotokan, then switched to sanda round 21/22 last couple of years only stuff that works, so a bit of freestyle almost: boxing, muay thai, sanda combined and rickson gracie jj.

    29 now.
