>I don't love this anymore
Tyson said that when he was 24 years old
I'm 25 and I've also lost my desire for the fight
Most pro fighters stop going for knockouts and reduce training intensity after age 22
When will you lose your lust for violence? Or when do you think you will lose it?
When I was 24 years old, my body shut down. I went from training, to being confined to a bed.
Without exaggeration, I honestly expected to just eventually die from my ailment.
And laying in my bed, facing my own mortality, I realized my greatest regret was not knocking more motherfuckers out.
That's eery. I'm 26 and had my last muay thai fight at the end of 2013, after that I let my training peter off to nothing over the following few months and focused on powerlifting instead.
Over the last couple of months I've really missed fighting and teaching and have joined a new MMA gym after having moved city. Now I train BJJ and am looking at getting back into practicing and teaching muay thai, I want to go back to Thailand and have another fight because it's something I want to achieve, but I definitely don't think I have the same fire I once did.
Im a very angry person so I expect my rage to keep me going. and 23 right now. Been boxing since I wa 16. Ill probably burn out in the next few years and just become tired of fighting altogether....
I trained from 14 to 25.
then i thought that I won, that I managed to shut down the fire inside my.
The two yers that followed...I was a calm guy, never starting shit outside the gym, but this two years i've had "altercation" with tree different people "In the street".
Now I'm back training, altought I wont get back on the ring.
I guess it was just a phase, and that I will probably need this all life long...
I am 27. I started fighting at 24 or something and noticed it is something I like to do and which I missed before.
And I do have a lot of rage in me. Sometimes I dream about fighting, but that was worse some years ago, where I was just waiting for someone to get in my face.
I don't know where this comes from. I have had this feeling for a long, long time. Trying to channeling and suppressing it. I write lots of stuff when I am upset or sad. I played violent games as a teenager. I learned to control myself as to not wage war with everyone. And the funny thing is I am actually a pretty happy person, at least I consider myself that.
I had a dream last night about running some puzzle obstacle course as Ryu and one of them Akuma appears so I jumped out the window towards him and we both did the raging demon
Had a serious spinal cord damage at 22. Same as the other guy, my only regret was not training enough, not fighting enough and not slamming\choking\dislocating joints of more people.
24 now, i cant call it 'rage' or 'lust for violence'...but some kind of love for fighting, for breaking people physically, something like this is still there. It's just that my body can't keep up anymore. I had to learn how to control myself better, how to be wiser and smarter person now.
I guess anyone from combat sports is kinda like that, if you don't have it, you just never start it or quit very soon. Cheers guys, nice to know that i'm not the only one who experienced it.
I'm 19 right now, so I still have the desire to fight. But I think it's more the desire to have something to work towards, rather than a way to get out my rage. I've never really had anything to throw myself in to, and fighting fills that hole for me
The brain of people under the age of 25 are still going through (generally speaking) a puberty of the brain (sort of speak).
Since the brain is still developing, and the prefrontal cortex is one of the last parts of the brain to finish developing, it could be said that people are stupid idiots until they're past the age of 25.
Besides intelligence and emotional control, people's personalities and values may change as people grow.
In all seriousness, I don't thik it's about hurting people. The closest I have to wanting to hurt people is wanting to test out my improvements against a static unimproving opponent. I got so many people who are great sparring partners because they continuously grow and challenge me, but sometimes I wish I could just unload on a new guy so I can finally feel my improvements.
But for me, the big thing about it is continuously challenging yourself. Finding new pockets of fear and flushing them out and seeing what you have in you.
I've been through this, and I am a much better fighter at 27 than 22. I'm much better at keeping to a regiment, organized training,, and buckling down to work on my own.
started bjj at 13. 26 now. getting my first strike on my black belt next may.
i couldn't care less. i show up to the gym once or twice a week at most. i had planned on opening up my own gym a few years ago, but once my enthusiasm started to wane i decided against it.
all of my joy and hopes are gone now, and i'm just dead inside all the time.
>>tfw I feel like perhaps I missed something that alienates me from my peers.
Regret and embarrassment are some of the things you're missing out on, but people can go without those things.
Testosterone levels decline at around the ages you've mentioned. Either start taking homerun juice or *gasp* start directing your efforts elsewhere. Educating yourself more would be a great idea. The urge to hurt people might even be replaced by the urge to care about them, who knows
It's called "brains" you moron.
Older fighters fight differnt, more tactical, more intelligent. I.e. instead of firing a shiload of berzerking strikes a lot less but better placed strikes.
Times are changing constatly and you have to adapt or die. Cry more faggot, I can't hear you over my training.
