Martial Arts, The Perfect Workout
So, you want to develop strength, explosive power, flexibility, agility, focus, reflex, reaction, and focus. Some people will go to different classes during the week to get these. Weight room for strength, crossfit for explosive power, yoga and pilates for flexibility, spin for cardio and a slew of others. For me, I have the martial arts to get all of those areas. I hit things for explosivness, cardio, and power. I grapple for strength. Boxing and kickboxing develops agility, reflex, reaction, focus. So, when people ask me what I do for exercise, mine allow me to use my body and others in a way other types of training cannot. It's been working for 40 years.
