Re: Training over 50

Well I'm 57, started at 45 but dropped out for a couple of years. Am getting ready for my Shodan test so have to have some intensity in training. Have a great example though. My senior teacher Frederic (Rick) Rowell is in his 70's and has been doing Aikido for over 40 years. He still regularly takes roles and sometime break falls. Not as frequent as when I first started but I can only hope I can do the same at his age.

Take care
