    Most people are poor to average in their skills. As you get older, you meet people who sing the "if only, if only" song. What they don't realize is that you can do something a lot and still be very poor at it. Look at driving. I drive 4 hours a day (outside sales), but that doesn't make me Mario Andretti.

    If you are happy training, that is all that should count. Stop trying to rate yourself, especially if you can't really put all the effort that you would need to too excel. Training should be fun, not an exercise in self loathing. If you're a serious competitor, that is another matter, otherwise, it's all just recreation.

    At 46 I have let go of worrying about whether or not I suck at MA. If I can make it to training once or twice a week and not get injured I'm fine with that.

    Way to quote Socrates in a martial context. XD

    I know exactly why I'm awful. After four and a half years, I still get what I can only describe as sparring amnesia. When I get in front of someone, I forget everything, and I get donked in the forehead within the first ten seconds. ._. After a few hits, I bounce back, but yeah that's not how it works on the street etc etc.

    I'm totally down with this. I'll be 40 come November, and as long as can muster some energy and see some development I'm plenty happy. You whippersnappers can go caper on someone elses lawn :-)

    Instead of going to the gym and getting punched by mean people,
    I like to stay home, eat coffee cake, and play point-and-click adventures.

    I suck because:
    1. I'm un-athletic and a noob at both judo and bjj.
    2. I eat pretty badly.
    3. Don't do any other exercise other than judo and bjj.
    4. Work very long hours in a job I don't like.
    5. Get to little sleep, wasting my free time watching tv and online.


    Having said all that, I have recently upped my training from twice a week to 4 times a week, and adding bjj is new. So I hope to suck a little less.

    I'm awful because I don't train often enough. I'm not as awful as I should be because I am a goddamn fountain of athletic talent.

    As someone who's met a lot of people from this site, no they are pretty awful and they know it. Me too, before you ask. Omega and Sirc can tell you all about my fail.

    If this is Backfistmonkey I will vouch for this. If it's not, I really need to learn everyone's ever-changing forum handles :P
