Hello all,
I have just decided to take up bjj after thinking about this for years.
wanting a good self defense and fitness.
Problem i have is i am now 38
Am i kidding myself or is it never too late wanting any tips or help relating to this discipline and would welcome any feedback

It's never too late, Helio Gracie was still training into his 90's!

Expect a great workout, even if you think you're fit, the first few sessions/weeks will no doubt kill you, but will be great fun.

Unlike going to the gym, you'll soon find BJJ will be working every muscle, and then some!

Let us know how ya get on, which club you going to?

Have ya got a website for them? Do you mean Gracie Barra Sheffield? If so great, if not, check them out for really good BJJ.

I didn't start JJJ until I was 39, not quite the same I know, but I don't see why you shouldn't be ok.
