My goal is to train hard, be in prime shape, and be the best I can be and to take my prime to the grave whenever that might be. After all, Helio Gracie, up until he died in his mid 90s was training hard and in excellent shape. Definitely an inspiration for me.

I think lifelong training is a great goal to aspire towards. Its a great example to the younger students that come along.

I plan to train for the rest of my healthy life, as well. Too many locals are in really bad shape, and as it may sound judgmental on my part, it inspires me to try to stay in shape.

My goal is to keep it up despite being in bad shape. I'm hoping my body will come back around eventually.

Train as long and as hard as you can. As they say "you'll get all the rest you need when they put you in the ground". Until then... Train.

Arguably, overtraining contributed to his death.

It's great to be passionate about training and work hard. Just realize martial arts can put a lot of wear and tear on your body, and it has to last the rest of your life.

In my 20's and 30's I overdid it with kicking, and was prone to back pain. Eventually I wised up. In my 40's, it was MMA, and we wailed on each other. One day I wondered, are we still going to be doing this on our 50's?

Now I'm in my 50's, and dialed back the training before I got hurt. Some of my old (but younger than me!) buddies weren't so lucky. I know guys who've had to get knees surgery, had pins put in bones, etc.

So train smart, don't beat yourself up!

I might train up to my dying breath, but I might not be teaching up to that point!!!!

Why not? You learn the most from teaching.
