    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I got my ass kicked by a 60+ year old man

    Technically i got my face punched in and now have a headache.

    i went to my MT club and there was a boxing coach, who trained Olympians, so he was working on some technique with one of the guys there who was getting punched around, while that guy was recovering he asked me if i wanted to work on something, i said mainly defense and my habit of punching from a distance (i'm more used to using punches as a diversion to kicking)

    so we got in the ring and worked for half an hour on my problems, during which i got punched everywhere, but i learned a lot too.

    at first i felt bad i couldnt hold my own against someone who could be my grandfather, then i asked our head coach who said that he was sparring full contact with another guy who is my size but ripped with muscle everywhere, and the coach knocked him around till the other guy was dizzy so they went easier.

    that old man deserves a medal and i want to be like him when i grew old, 60 years old and beating up ripped 20-something year old boys.

    (My defense also sucks, but now i know how to work on it)

    Never underestimate dudes with gray hair. I've learned that the hard way also.

    Old man strength is hugely underrated.

    This wouldn't even be worth mentioning in judo, it's different in strikeistan though, and worthy of merit.

    Did he look like Clint Eastwood? If so then you should have excepted an assbeating.
    Lord Krishna said: I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world; Of those heroic soldiers presently situated in the opposing army, even without you none will be spared.
    Bhagavad Gita 11:32
