When I'm 64...

The Judo classes that I attend are during the daytime (12-1:30, M/W/F) and as a result, we get a nice mixed crowd, primarily consisting of adults on their lunch breaks. Usually were between 8-12 people, and most of us are in the 30's and 40's with the ocassional college student or twentysomething person showing up. There are also a handful of guys who are in their 60's - two black belts and two green belts. Obviously the blackbelts have a lot of experience and skill, but you'd be surprised how hard of a time we all have with the green belts in Randori. I often comment to them how I wish I could have half their strength at 64, and I'd be okay. I guess having gone back to Judo was the first step in that direction.
