Am I behind?
I've hesitated to say this, because I might not like the answer..
I want to win regional championships and be known as a great swordsman.
But my mom said I'm 16 and if you want to be great at something like kendo
you need to train since your born. Ofcourse I refused to listen.. But I'm 145
and 5'7. I feel like I'm lacking physcial attributes sometimes as well. Why do
I want to take kendo? it's because I want to travel with my dojo and broaden
my horizon, places like Japan. And ofcourse to be a swordsman just like hitokiri
But the question is?
If I take this seriously and I start classes about now, will I ever become
tournament level? Can I really be the best?

'The Best' is a nearly impossible goal to achieve. Most Kendoka aren't in Kendo to be the best however (I hope).
