Re: Well, this is pretty cool.... (Aikido group for 55-75 year old women)

Whoever the teacher is...students are limited by their physical ability, age and time on the mat. A picture is a moment...not the process. Jean started aikido when she was seventy. Her rolls were always a bit scary to watch, yet her courage was inspirational. She could roll the way she could roll and I respected that. When she stopped practicing at 77 she could still roll the way she could roll and still left me in awe of her courage and commitment to her training.
