The Price and the Value
I didn't start studying until I was 49. I struggled with rolls and falls all though the first couple of years.Nothing about it came easy to me.
Last summer, I was asked to be the uke, the partner that attacks and then takes the falls, for a black belt test. It is an honor to be asked. It means the person testing respects your skills enough to want you on the mat for their test.
That's me in the air.
What did it cost me to learn this? What value can I put on the knowing?
