    yes and no

    i have had technique training for quite a while, kicks, elbows, knees etc etc, strategy, blocks, defence, all that stuff.
    I just wasnt sure what the rules were in competition, as relevant for a 16 year old.

    You are an amateur fighter, and people with 30+ fights do not tune up to someone who is 0-0. So don't listen to Kidspatula, because she is a moron.

    You will be classed with someone with the same experience as you, and how it is in Texas after the age of 25 you have to be an open fighter. Open fighters are people with more than I think 9 fights.

    So you will be fighting people most likely under 25, and with less than 9 fights. Most likely someone with only 1 or 2 fights.

    You will be fine.
    Can i move in and just perform a double leg sweep takedown in the ring, or does it have to be after catching a kick?

    P.S: your advice is greatly appreciated

    Jez,

    Asking your coach/instructor about the competition rules of the style he's teaching you usually works.

    please listen to Carbon because he is not a moron. Oh wait, that's completely untrue. My first fight was to be against someone with quite a few fights under her belt. My friend, Lana, had 7 fights under her belt and was put up against Christi Martin ( record 46-2 ) as a warm up fight. This **** happens.

    Carbon is a jackass who thinks he knows **** because he's watched ESPN2. I doubt if he even trains.

    Even if a crescent kick across the face is legal... it'd be stupid to try it.

    So your friend with 7 fights accepted a fight with someone who si 46-2, wow and this is why when you describe all your friends and their abilities it always ends with the word ****.

    You are a shitty fighter, and so are your friends. Your manager and coaches and whoever else is involved with these "friends" are fucking morons. Why would you accept a fight with someone who is 46-2? Better yet are you talking about amateur's or pro's?

    Either way, you are a moron, and so are your friends.

    Do I train? Yes I do, but does it really concern you? No. Do I play on making a career of fighting? No. I am going to school and I have no reason to try and making fine my main source of income. I like working out and I like training, and I am pretty sure that I would be a better coach/manager than the morons residing in your state.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    To put this thread back on track somewhat, is it better to start competing at a young (16-17 years old) age?

    well all my trainers tell me to get in as young as possible. i train with 18-25 year olds, so i guess this is kind of the next step.

    i figure, why get over the hurdle of just getting in there and getting some experience at 21 when you can do it at 16?

    well i guess well just see what happens.
