Yep. It's different than what you see in certain "club" settings (something a lot of people don't realize), but it does use a lot of the same tricks. It's really fun, and a great way to work out and build muscle. I've wanted to try it for many years too, but never got around to it. Finally, I had a friend who wanted to go and really pushed me to go. I made time to go (not thinking I would go more than once or twice), but I started and I can't quit. It's neat too because the age ranges from people in their mid-teens (I think the youngest is around 15), all the way up to people in their 60's+.
I'm really hoping to get good enough to compete. The owner of the place I go competes all over the country. She's really good. I know I'll never be that good, but I'd like to be good enough to at least compete and not look ridiculous.
