definitely! Humbling for certain. Since I started Judo I have been beat up by everyone from 15 year old kids to 60+ year old men.
As for practicing with women...
I’ve been choked out by a 45 year old “soccer mom” and a 105 pound Italian woman. I’ve been demolished by a Portuguese woman who was closer to my weight and planted firmly on the mat by a blind woman. So being a guy practicing with women can definitely be humbling. It’s not a sport to start at this age if you have ego issues!
man I hope this thing blows over so we can all get back to the mats and train!
Agreed! I can’t wait to get back on the mat!!
