    Rule No. 1 of any martial art. The smaller, older and more wizzened the sensei is, the more it is going to hurt. Movement is a very big thing in nearly all martial arts. If anyone can get to their early 70s and still be fit enough to train and teach then they must have something going for them.

    I am reminded by a quote from Terry Pratchet's Interesting Times. Goes something like this...

    "They are nothing more than a group of old fools!"
    "But if they are so foolish how did they get so old?"

    I've no doubt butchered it hideously but you get the idea.
  4. The other Terry Pratchett quote is:
    'Rule One: "Do not act incautiously when confronting a little bald wrinkly smiling man." '
  5. if the plan involves taking some harmless looking old oriental in hand to hand
    think of a better plan :twisted:
