That actually happened to me once. I acidentlly went to the kids Tae Kwon Do class and they let me take class. I ended up sparring little kids and feeling really out of place. When I told my dad thats how I found out about the Sienfeld thing lol.That is great that you are doing that. I have always wanted to take a martial arts class but never had the time/money when I was younger and now I think I am too old. I have a vision of that Seinfeld episode where Kramer was taking karate and his entire class consisted of kids. :lol
Robin Horsfall in his autobiography spoke about how he spent a year inbetween tours doing a Shotokan Karate class alongside kids.That actually happened to me once.

Your never too old to do it. One guy in my Judo class must be over 50. There are a couple of guys in their 30s too.
I did breakfalls, a few basic throws, and did some chokes. I had my second class on Thursday and really felt like I was doing it. I threw, was thrown, and did randori(sparring). I'm missing the class on Sunday because I'm down at the beach with my family. But I don't count that as breaking the goal. Although I'll lose some of my momentum with the break which sucks.So what were you reviewing?
It is not a dumb question. I am in the same situation as you. I wear glasses when they are doing instruction then take them off when we are doing drills or randori.This is kind of a dumb question, but I've been thinking about martial arts classes for a while. I wear glasses and I can't use contacts (literally, I can't relax enough to put in contact lenses). If I take my glasses off, I'm pretty much blind and I doubt I could follow what anyone else in the room is doing. I'm guessing it's a bad idea to practice with glasses on, so will I have to figure out a way to wear contacts?
