I started at 49. I am having trouble thinking this is a serious question.
Well, look at it this way -- the popular culture view of martial arts (i.e., movies) tends to feature characters who started training as young children. It's understandable if someone with no other knowledge or experience, and who had never actually visited a dojo (apart from a children's class), would think they might be "too old" at the age of 22, even though that has nothing to do with reality.
