I started aikido at 18 in college. At that time, I had little regard for my personal safety, so falling didn't bother me (until I jammed-up my shoulder . . .)

Now I'm older, but still like to take high falls. However, I now keep in mind the necessity of falling correctly since I'm not as young, limber, and quick to heal.

A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
