Here is another interesting story and this time another bold woman.

A 73-year old lady has set a new and unique record in the UK. According to Yorkshireeveningpost, Barbara Dyson, a surgeon from Methley, Leeds, has become the oldest woman in the country to secure a karate black belt after promising her dying husband that she would fight until she won the belt, which is considered as the sport's highest accolade. Dyson won this belt after 10 years of hard training. Now, she has become a master in punching, blocking and kicking. A few days ago, the great-grandmother, who also has three grandchildren, accidentally chopped a friend's hand after she mistook her for a robber.

At this age, I must say I will only play with my grandchildren and puppies. What else, lying on bed and listening to old music. Forget about belt, I wouldn't even be able to do jogging.

Now congratulate that lady for her incredible achievement.

if someone tries to snatch a purse from this lady, situation would be like in Mrs. Doubtfire..only difference would be that there will be no guy dressed as a old lady b on the counter-attack....
must say a great achievement at this age....when people are advised to turn to religion and pursue milder hobbies...

Hi, humanobserver! Thanks that visited my blogs. I had vacation in Egypt, therefore could not answer on your messages at once.

I very much respect such women, really the age does not matter, the main thing to have the purpose and aspire to reach it.
