Hello everyone, I am a 30 year old Software engineer and looking to get back into martial arts, specifically Tang Soo Do. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my old sensei, from when I was 13 years old, is still practicing and I'm looking forward to attending his classes again. I'm already going to the gym daily for 30 minute workouts so and after a couple of months of that I feel like I'm ready to tackle martial arts again. So, knowing that I believe that I have two large hurdles that I will have to work past. The first is my weight. I'm afraid that for years I did not take adequate care of my health in the pursuit of my professional career. Now I'm going to reverse that, but by my own calculations I have about 40 pounds to lose to return to my high school weight of 190. Of course, back then I was in track, wrestling, and football so I was exercising a lot and had a ton of muscle. I don't have that kind of time now. I'm hoping someone here will have recommendations about correcting this. The second hurdle is flexibility. I'm no where near as limber as I was, but I think I have a means of correcting this. I'm looking into dance warm ups and yoga exercises to develop a little more flexibility. Hopefully that will help. So, that being said, hello! I look forward to participating in the community here and hopefully getting some advice.
