    Me and another middle aged old fart did live stand up wrestling for about 15-20 minutes this morning with each other.
    I have two hip replacements.
    He has one hip replacement.
    We're not what I would call quick by any stretch of the imagination.
    But we both had a grand old time.

    Good old times. When we were kids, wax on wax off was way to karate. For today's kids I think it means something Brazilian and not sure about if it is BJJ :p

    Thanks hungryjoe. Hopefully I'm insane enough this to feel like home.

    Forgot to mention that in one point I was in "family judo" with my kid and I also was assistant judo teacher for 3-7 years olds when my own kid were participating that. It is funny that I'm not particularly "kids person" but kids for some reason seems to really like me and I get high ratings from my kids classes.

    From one old kick boxer to another, welcome to the madhouse.
