Something worth adding

To this photo (from earlier in the thread)...



The lad on the ground is Tommy O'Hara, Tommy is 70yrs old and recently told me that in over 40yrs working for C.I.E. and Dublin Bus (obviously Tommy is retired now) he's been off sick for only 3 days!!!.. And its been 37yrs since he last seen a doctor due to illness or injury!.

Oh, and he boasts that he's never had a needle or a stitch!.

And for insider info from me, I can't remember him missing a night training!.

Apologies if chatting not allowed.
Does he still train and spar as hard as younger guys would?

OK good question.

He trains as hard, and spar's as hard - but not for as long as he'll admit himself that his recovery rate isn't what it once was.

But on the ground he's superb, and hard as nails.

In the photo he's just getting up from a Seoi nage (shoulder throw).

Honestly, do you like the photo?.

At first glance, he looks a bit vulnerable, with the guy looking down at him so relaxed looking. Then you notice he still has that warriors look of determination etched all over his face. Puts most younger people to shame that he still has that spirit and continues to train as hard.
Good snapshot.

Well if your ever in Dublin and got an hour to spend your more than welcome to drop in and say "Hi" to us all, and if you get Tommy or John yapping about Martial Arts, well their stories are worth more money than every book on the subject you'll ever buy.

Here are a few from our clubs recent promo shoot at UCC.
They are not mine so they are not on my flickr.

And of course, the senior members of Cork Budokai kendo club

This is just something we threw together for the website a while back but lost the original. Finally managed to rip it from Facebook and get it on youtube.
