    this sounds so much like me... I feel sick and regretful whenever I have to miss training, for whatever reason... flu, injury, work, just the wrong day...

    Great post, thanks.

    Hey Sarah, great job. Keep it up.
    I am late starter myself, began my adventure with MA at 34, but for me it was more the ability to stay around people than progress itself. I still suck and am so slow in "getting it", sometimes I even fail at what I already "know".


    Once my instructor was explaining me the technique that I suck at big time, showing me how it should be done. Then he asked me if I see the difference. My answer was "Of course, the colour of belt". This left him speechless for a moment, and then he agreed that I just need to keep on practicing to master it.

    Then you miss the purpose of the thread. For instance, this one is the exact opposite of what the title implies.

    I figured his response would be “if you don’t want to suck, take American Kenpo.”

    You really should consider reading more than just the title.
