    Congratulations and well done, Don. I am still plugging away at judo at age 64. Your achievements are an inspiration to me to continue my own efforts.

    Congratulations Don! This is an extraordinary feat for any age, much less 70! Like others who have commented, I am very grateful for your sharing this news since it truly inspires me to consider a meaningful fitness goal as I am eyeing that milestone just a few short years away – perhaps something a little less ambitious ;o). However, like you, I have embraced the notion that we must be in shape to face old age with daily stretching and exercise, and you have provided remarkable proof. With much admiration and gratitude, 11766 James
