MA was my first love (thanks to bruce lee).As a 5 y old I took up ju jitsu but my father kind of pushed me into playing football(which I enjoyed also to be honest).In my early twenties I started again with MA (Kempo and full contact karate)but had to do my military service.Trained a wee bit in muay thai during my time in the army with a lad who was a good MT fighter.After my military career the MA club I used to go to was shut down(it was a very small club)so I started running.After many years and after the birth of our son I decided to take up karate again.I really missed it ( I still have regrets I that I took up football,but as they say :you cannot turn back the clock).
2.I haven't been training that long like many of you but I enjoy the hard practice either in the dojo or at home(even when I feel as if my legs and knees hurt the next morning),meeting up with different people even from different countries ,and many more things really .....and I intend to enjoy it for the rest of my life.
Guy - try and view it as it wasn't the right time then and try and find out ways to help us 'Set in our ways' knackered old geezers to progress as you come to it as a fresh and open to modern approaches 'knackered older chap' HAHA!
well I hope I can still become as good as some of those knackered old geezers
I hear ya! My instructor had a heart attack at 50 some odd years old, was training two months after and beat the living tar out of me because he was not allowed to train for two months by his wife...she made him sit around and I paid for it!
Some of the old timers are very dangerous people!
