My first day of training was tonight! I am 43 years old and I joined a Hap Ki Do class along with my 9 year old son and 11 year old daughter. It was my son who I was a little worried about initially. He has been diagnosed with Aspergers and lacks a little coordination. And like his dad is a bit of a couch potato. Well I should have been worried about myself! I am slightly overweight (5-10 200lbs) and havent done anything aerobic for quite awhile. I had to stop and catch my breath a few times and at one point thought I was going to pass out. I knew I was out of shape but didnt realize how bad. My son and daughter breezed through the warm up and stretching without breaking a sweat. At one point I was wondering what I got myself into. I finally caught my breath and made it through the rest of the class. My daughter did great, she recently gave up Ballet which she had been doing for six years. Needless to say she was able to kick as high as her head pretty easily. My son needs a little work on form but I am extremely proud of how well he did. Cant wait till the next class in two days!
