Because I'm 50 now and if I stopped, I'd never get moving again!

Because at 41, this is the time of my life to get into it and hope to develop an appreciable amount of knowledge and skill. If I dropped it for another 15-20 years, it might be possible to pick it up in my 60s.

Because 25 years from now, I want to look back at 25 years of doing Aikido. (My Kali instructor woould want to congratulate me, too, although he will probably keep his hands behind his back.)

Because I feel good after practice.

Because it doesn't wipe me out as much as it did two years ago.

.... but most of all ....

Because I'm an Aikido addict!
