65 Years YoungApril 23rd, 2014
It’s all relative.
Just when you start thinking 65 is old, something like this comes along to remind you that it really isn’t:
“When martial arts master Seikichi Uehara was 96
he defeated a 39-year old opponent who was himself
a former boxing champ. Seikichi later explained that his
‘opponent had not yet matured enough to beat me.'”
“Even in his sixties, he could not be touched–even by students
in their twenties, striking with full power.”
Of course, that’s not normal, but still, it’s nice to know it’s possible, even if it’s by someone else.
Here’s an inspiring interview with the Master, taped in 2007, when he was 93. (He died in 2004, at age 100.)
