    Certainly in the UK I think there are far less jobs now where you can see out your time until retirement age with an adequate company pension. My friend works for the county council and every year all jobs are up for appraisal meaning you have to re-apply annually.
    At least having a trade and being self employed means you can carry on working as needs be and then hopefully wind it down when you hit the mid 60's (or sooner hopefully).
    That is if you don't get injured or hurt, a prime reason for older folks to keep up martial arts and maintain a fit and supple body.
