Flexibility and Martial Arts
Posted: July 13, 2010
When many people think of martial arts, the first images that come to mind are those of high kicks and flying through the air. Because of this, many adults question whether or not they could ever do martial arts. Some think they can never be proficient due to their lack of flexibility, but this is simply not true.
First and foremost martial arts training is about self-protection, and self-improvement. Everyone needs to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones and everyone should strive to be better tomorrow than they are today.
I have met good martial artists that are confined to wheelchairs, and martial artists with other physical disabilities. What makes them great is their ability to work around their challenges to become proficient in self-protection and self-improvement.
