Getting Too Old For This

Went down to Ah Soon's tkd class last night. I think age might finally be catching up on me. For the first time in a very very long time, I had to fall out and take a break during training halfway through as I was beginning to feel faint and weak after just a few rounds of kicking.


Maybe it's because I haven't been exercising much these few months. Or maybe it's because I did not hydrate myself enough before the training. Or maybe it's because I over-exerted myself by ensuring that I got in 100 kicks in 60 seconds for both legs. Or maybe it was the fatal combination of all these factors.


Whatever the case, I felt really weak and faint and had to fall out halfway through class. the last time that I remember myself falling out from a class is during our hardcore tournament training where I took a fall and landed on my butt bone, after which I felt the exact same effects as last night. And that was almost 4 to 5 years ago.


But in any case, I still managed to recover from that minor lapse in performance and to return to the class for the sparring session. And after all these years of inactivity in tkd, only 1 thing's for sure: I STILL KICK ASS.


I may not be as fast or accurate or powerful as I used to be in my prime, but judging from the standards of the type of tkd training I see going on in CCs nowadays and the quality of the students produced, I have no doubt that I can still go kick for kick with any one of those fighters out there.


It's amazing how the hunger just comes back once you are able to get a clear hit to a worthy opponent's head. And to top it all off, I still managed to execute a couple of my trademark spins and dodges almost perfectly, albiet a little slower than what would be expected of me in my prime.


But kicking ass also comes with a price. Although my arms and legs are still considered seasoned from all the tough training in the past, I unknowly brought back a few souvenirs after the training. My right arm was quite badly bruised although I didn'r really feel much pain. And this morning the bruising became more obvious and it hurts a little when I press on it. But still, it's a small price to pay for being able to get a good kick on someone's head. I haven't felt this 'shoik-ness' in a very long time.
