I have been a fan of martial arts since I was a kid. I begged my father when I was a teen to register me into a martial art school, like Aikido, but he never actually did it. I was frustrated, and learned boohoo moves from movies (Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Delon Tam, Meng Fei, you name it. I watched every kungfu movie there is, imitate the moves and back when I was a teenager I called it martial art of my own, lmao!). I had a fare share of my addiction to those wing chun and snake moves, ya know. Thought I was some sort of Kung Fu master back then.
Anyway, getting to the point. I was thinking of doing martial arts, but I am already 26, and I believe my body is not anymore ready as my joints might be stiff (such as doing splits and all that).
Inspired from watching Cobra Kai, at this time, I want to learn Karate, and probably entering a dojo in our town nearby. My question is: do you think I can still learn the moves and kicking techniques in my age? I maybe able to do the blocking and punching, but I fear doing all the other kicking skills won't apply.
