    Thinking about coming out of retirement

    I think I might be suffering from a second mid-life crisis. My fighters posted a Muay Thai tournament and I was thinking about taking my first kickboxing match in nearly 20 years. What you guys think?

    Keep the brains and neurological function that you have left.

      I know that after 24 years, I'm not in condition for any serious competition, but you're the only one who knows if you've kept up with your training and cardio. I do know that I want to be physically able to enjoy my retirement/
      I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

        What are you, around 50 now? Granted, you've stayed in good shape.

        Why by the kickboxing rule set? I figure you'd want to be able to use the throws and submissions if you're going back into the game.

        aside

        Thinking about rebuilding a motorcycle nobody else in the family wants to see back on the road. Cause mid-life crisis.

        and

        What gonzo said.

          Brains? According to my daughter I have no cells left. I might just try sparring with my team to figure this out. I've got 3 weeks.

          It was just a tournament they put on the facebook page. I figured I feel younger than I thought I would feel at 50 so why not?

              Do it! Enter with a walker and play it up big time. Entrance music? Trying to think of something from the Grand Torino soundtrack.

                  I am going to have to agree with Gonzo.

                  Don't do it.

                  Grappling, yeah, go for it. You can compete in age/weight classes in BJJ, Judo, etc.

                        I say go for it. You've still got the skills and ability to take on a lot of younger fighters. I'd just say make sure you come in in the best shape of your life endurance-wise and you'll clean house at a lot of regional or even national level kickboxing orgs.
