  • Hello all and Happy father's day to all of you karatekas dads out there
    This is my first post, just thought I'd say hi ....

    But there is a topic I'd like to bring up... I have started martial arts a little late in my life and it really helps keeping me in good shape. I would be interested in sharing with other 'Late bloomers'. If anyone thinks it's an interesting topic, please don't hesitate to reply to this post. We can maybe tell our stories and exchange on what martial arts is bringing to our already quite fulfilled life... I am a woman of 62 years old and have been practicing Shotokan karate for 8 years and kung fu for one year. I am a brown belt working hard to reach my goal of getting my black belt before I turn 65...
