Respectfully, how many kickboxing students do you see over the age of 45? I've been in martial arts for over 36 years and from what I've observed, folks tend not to stay in kickboxing (in any style) for the long term, unlike what you can find in more traditional martial arts where there is more of an art element. And you definitely find more older folks in traditional martial arts compared to kickboxing.
Kickboxing, MMA and extreme martial arts forms (either open style or wushu) are young people's martial arts. We just don't see many over 45s in these forms.
