I posted this on the Women and MA section but realized there might be many beginners out there like me who would be interested in my new MA blog...I just started a blog to chronicle my martial arts journey. I am a 43 yo mom of two who just started about a year ago and just got my yellow belt a few months ago, but I am going back to the beginning and bringing myself up to current rank. Then, going on a day by day basis of what is currently going on in my journey and maybe some fun sidebars but still within the MA subject. All kidding aside, I absolutely love martial arts and can see myself staying with it the rest of my life. And when I'm older and wiser in my journey, I would like to write a book about my experience for women like me (or men!)who start studying a martial art later in life and who is more surprised by that themselves than anyone else! : ) Since I try to see the humor in things, my blog pokes fun at myself and the situation sometimes. And I tend to say things that others only think to themselves. LOL! If you'd like to stop by, here is the spot to go, but keep in mind, I am brand spanking new to blogging, so bear with me as I get to learn the ropes. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for sharing some of you thought with us. The Blog idea is a interesting way of keeping up with what happens during training. May i suggest you also make hard copies for yourself to look back on later on done the years

Good idea on making hard copies. At some point in the future after I get my black belt, I plan on writing a book of the entire journey...you know, to encourage others. One of those, "If I did it, you can do it" kind of things and having fun (and poking fun) at myself along the way. Thanks and please check in often as I'm really have a good time with it!

I thought a reality show with a mom like me starting a journey like this would be cool. As long as it were done in good taste, I would watch it. Woudn't you?
