The travails of a teacher, musician and new dad who, at the age of forty nine, enters the world of Jiu Jitsu with no prior formal Martial arts training.  Will he reach blue belt by fifty?  Will he get beat up by an endless stream of more experienced twenty somethings?  Will he get the baby puke out of his Gi?  The answers to these and other burning questions, plus some random ruminations on fatherhood, pacifism, self-defense and the construct of masculinity, coming up.  Stay tuned and thanks for reading.
