similar experience several years ago at a dojo. i was fighting full contact
at the time and doing well physically so I had a decent amount of
confidence. when i was picked up off the floor by the kind man who had just
delivered the hardest punch I have _ever_ received, he chuckled kindly and
encouraged me to try some different techniques. I later found that he had
held several breaking records (concrete/granite) and had successfully
competed in Japan for several years (all confirmed).
since that time i have let myself go somewhat and am now in a position to
get back into my old workout routine. i don't know if i will get back what
i have "lost", but it will be fun trying. perhaps some day i can be the
balding fat guy that teaches another snot nose a lesson.
