    You'd have to be off your rocker to pick a fight with older, more jacked Carl Winslow...

    You are never too old to benefit from jiu-jitsu. The guy was built, but his knowledge of positions and leverage allowed him to dominate the guy easily. I trained with a gentleman in his 70s who was able to dominate some 20 year olds who were new to the class. It humbled them pretty quickly.

    The point of jiu-jitsu is to “float” and change positions effortlessly as your opponent uses strength and energy to try and get up like a caveman. It depletes their energy very quickly and usually opens them up for submissions and strikes. More importantly, they become too gassed to generate the power necessary to significantly hurt you. This obviously changes against a trained opponent, but they generally have more integrity than to start street fights with 60 year old men.

    Well, crap. I turn 62 in Feb. I need to learn this stuff.
    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

    Being large and strong helps. Start there.

    It’s not as uncommon as you might think. We have a 60 year old who received his blue belt this year. No time like the present, we aren’t getting any younger

    Thanks. Hope for me yet. When the time comes, I'll ask some more specific questions in this forum, but hopefully most will be answered by the instructor. To be honest, I'm probably going to wait until wider availability of COVID vaccine; my wife and I are both in the "risk" group, and I'd rather things calm down a little before I get into a contact sport like jits. Meanwhile I'll keep going on my healthy keto/weight training routine.



    Very much appreciate the input guys.
