    I'm curious as to how old you are? It sounds like you've taken judo up in the last couple of years and you're well into your middle age.

    Past the age of 35 or so (depending on the individual), your body is in decline and it really can't take the beating it once could. Arthritis on top... I would listen to your sensei.

    There are veterans' competitions, but you end up fighting 5th dans who have been doing judo for 30+ years. What's the point in that?

    Sometimes you get those guys and sometimes you can get other late starters. The nice thing is that everyone knows we all have to go back to work on Monday. Those old 5th dans aren't going to go any harder than they need to.
