I’ve used to train pretty heavily in thai boxing and mma years ago (like 5) and I was pretty good with it. Now at 33 married with kids and in ok shape but not the greatest decided to sign up to train again. I’m going to start of in thai boxing and then maybe if time and health permits take mma classes also (the gym does offer both). First class is this week. I’m super excited. lol

Did anybody else start training again after years off? I am going to be in the world of pain? I don’t want to embarrass myself in front of all the others.

garagetrainedloser,

Good for you and your son.

I'm really afraid of neck and back injuries so muy thai is probably safer in that respect than bjj, mma or wrestling even though I love to grapple and I am pretty ok with it.

My older son is almost 4 and youngest son is only 3 months. I definitely gotta get them involved in the future just like you.

You have a lot of experience on younger guys. Try to have a positive attitute.

I'm going to try to get into the best fighting shape of my life as I turn 34 in 2 weeks! And I'm going to kick some young ass!

Update!

Went full retard at muay thai practice and sparred with their best guy. The full retard part that I probably wasn't ready to spar but i diidn't listen to anybody. Went really hard an tried to hurt the other guy and he tried to hurt me. Blocked all knees on the clinch except one! Now i am in a lot of pain with lots of black and blues all over my body.

39 years old now. I have been through surgeries on knee and neck. Started back training again and hope to fight again. I work full time and two kids, 11 and 8. Finding time is hard but when you make it part of your day planning is a bit easier Phone Post

Update:

I'm still training hard! Few small injuries here and there but nothing major!

Finding time just like everybody says it's tough but I'm trying. I will try to get up really early on the weekends and start running outside.

I think they getting hit in the head is not the best thing you can do. In 35 and have started to roll in BJJ. The reason I chose this is that it is a martial art I can do that has a great workout and has minimal injuries on the body long term. Seems a legit thing to consider but sparring in BJJ and a solid clean diet is all you need. Not many older guys stay with Muay Thai or Krav Maga due to injuries etc Phone Post

JVC1001,

I think there is a greater chance for injuries in BJJ than in Muya Thai. You constantly roll with other guys who apply all sorts of pressure on your joints.

Maybe I'm in the minority here but I think long term BJJ is pretty high on injuries.

I respectfully disagree.

I have long term bad knee injuries and a form of rhuematoid arthritis and after many years of muay Thai I've ended up concentrating solely on bjj as its easier on my body and for me is a more efficent way of staying fit.

Just my two cents though, everybody's different. Phone Post

With that said I do worry about my joints.

Again though, that's just my opinion. Phone Post
