I have three years experience in Kung Fu, two years in boxing and two years in Muay Thai. So far I don't have any experience in grappling, but I think wrestling is really interesting.

The problem is that I'm 31. Finding a club won't be a problem as it could be in the US, because I'm from Germany and there are quite a few clubs even in rural areas with people competing even up to the age of 40 or 50.

I'm just not sure whether it would make sense at all to start at my age because I think wrestling is typically a sport you start at a younger age and I would never stand a chance to even get decent. What do you think?

Also, how does wrestling compare to Muay Thai when it comes to workout and cardio?

No, the problem is that you're not using your brain.

>I would never stand a chance to even get decent.
Not with that attitude.

>What do you think
Don't give up without trying, you might regret giving up before you die.

>how does wrestling compare to Muay Thai when it comes to workout
Do you have a strong back? Wrestlers often like to have strong backs. Also, muscular endurance is nice to have

You absolutely can. Consider that 8 years is plenty of experience wrestling: 4 years high school, 4 years college. You can absolutely still make that, especially since you should be training smarter than a high school kid.

>Also, how does wrestling compare to Muay Thai when it comes to workout and cardio?
As a baseline, a bit easier, as competitive a lot harder. There's a huge difference in approach. Muay Thai is about pacing yourself and being ready for the full match. Wrestling is about exploding and making immediate use of all your strength and cardio. That's one of the reasons wrestling is such a good base for MMA.

OP here. Could you guys describe what a typical wrestling training looks like?

I can't do a trial lesson right now because I'll be in Japan for a year. Does anyone know whether they have wrestling clubs in Japan? As far as I know, it's mostly a university sport like in the US, so I reckon it would be difficult to find a place to train for me.

Here's a typical day for me:

Warmups, including doing shoots all over the mat.

Once that's done, we usually start with hand wrestling, then go live (fully wrestling) for a round. Then, we stop and get instructed on a technique, and drill it 10 times each. We usually get through 3 or 4 techniques, linked thematically. Then we wrestle for three rounds, starting standing, and then each taking a turn in referee's position.

Then we finish up with a chant, and get fitness 'homework'
