I've been training in taekwondo for about 15yrs and now i'm 40 yrs old. My question to my generation is. "As we are taught that age comes with wisdom." I've used my art many times, because i've worked in security all my life and needed to keep the peace at one time or another. My question is how do we older folks get used to the idea that the aspect of physicality or confrontation is a thing of the past (for us anyway) except for teaching purposes. I mean I wanna still do the fancy kicking and stay competitive, but when your body says no how do you deal mentally with that? Especially when you feel young and vigorous, but know that what ever you try to do that you once did before, pain will definitally fallow along with frustration. Thoughts anyone?
