Re: The age old question...too old to start?
One of my sempai started training at nearly 40. She is now 77, a sandan, and only stopped training two years ago when she got her hips replaced. One of my teachers started training at nearly 40, is 76, a Yondan, and is still taking the same kind of ukemi as he was thirty years ago.
I starteed at 46 and am testing for 2nd kyu next week after 4 years of training.
No one is too old to start training.
