You are never too old! Age has nothing to do with the right time to start. Take me for example, I have often thought about where I would be had I started as a kid… then again, I did take about a month of karate as a child. I had no passion, nor attention span at that time and quickly dropped out. It wasn’t until I was 15 that I enrolled in kung fu and even then it took me about a year to get serious about my training. Also, I have adult students aging from their mid twenties to as old as sixty two! They’re living proof it’s never too late.
There is an old saying, “When the student is ready, the master will appear.” Maybe it’s time to see who is ready for you. Take some intro classes and really think about the long term, does the school and instructors seem like they will provide for your growth as a student? Can you see yourself progressing in the system? Does the schedule and teaching style work for you? Don’t be afraid to find the right fit for you.
If the desire is there, you will have no problem.
