Usually I celebrate my age. Age is just a number. In fact, I really enjoy being able to hang with the youngsters in my jiu jitsu class, and even in my Muay Thai class. If I can make it through the entire class, no injuries, still standing, no worse for the wear, I count that as a victory! For all the older grapplers out there, check out this cool t-shirt. You can get one at bjjtees.com for a limited time…I ordered mine today. You can also follow this guy on Facebook at Old Man Jiu Jitsu.
Last night I did have a moment though. One too many people took my back, got on top of my back and smashed the crap out of me. It was just too much for my old lady body. I had to tap and sit out the last few minutes of class. The old back was just not having it last night. But, I’m not going to let that get me down. I will get back up and go back to class and hopefully this time I will grapple smarter and keep those youngsters off my back! Yep, this old gal still has some fight left in her! :D
