I would like to talk about how the martial arts can be a fountain of youth, and how with the martial arts, people only get better with age. Part of why I want to start this discussion here is because it started in the forum about guns in MartialTalk. There was a discussion of how guns might be necessary for older martial artists who are past their prime. It got a bit silly with stuff such as who would win in a fight between Rickson Gracie and Kristen Stewart. That was me, though who was being silly, I was the one who brought it up about Rickson Gracie vs Kristen Stewart. Anyway, I want to talk about how the martial arts can be a fountain of youth and certain advantages in the martial arts that can come with age. The fact of the matter is, we all die. Ten out of ten people die. Its the one inevitable thing about life that it will come to an end sometime or another. Not even taxes are inevitable, there are people who get out of that, but death is inevitable for nobody. However, I believe in being in the best of shape to the very end. I plan in taking all my strength, speed, and abilities to the grave, whenever that might be.
