I'm 48, and going for Brown Belt in April. Old enough to know better, but crazy enough to do it anyway. Say a prayer, light a candle, do what whatever you do...

I was stunned to find that over 98% of FAF members are between 16-20 (assuming the poll is reasonably representative). A minute later, I was stunned at my stupidity not guessing it earlier.

Put your reading glasses on, gramps. Try 30% for 16-20.

Just turned 65.Still working out, riding my Ducati, and remain very healthy except for rotator cuff injury.began my journey with karate in 1969.It has been an enormous influence in my life.Martial arts has introduced me to many extraordinary people from whom I draw my motivation.Being a U.S. Marine doesn't hurt either.

I'm 17 and I've recently started TKD. I love it and want to continue it when I go on to college and even after college.

so this thread shows most are age 16-20. yet the site wishes to make it sound the average age is older and more educated (and by suggestion, therfore a more economically viable audience to advertise to).

Years Of Martial Arts Experience

if 61% spend 6 hours per week at the site - then they must be referencing forum members, since they never put out 6 hours of new articles on the site a month, never mind per week.

there was another poll done some time ago in the forums that asked how many years experience:

false advertising to the advertisers...gotta love it.
