I'm excited to present to you the Martial Arts Newsletter. Martial Arts has a strong root in history, combat, and fitness. There are many different styles and techniques one can learn. There are many different cultures and civilizations represented in Martial Arts. There is also great diversity around why people join Martial Arts and what they seek to gain from their experiences.
In this channel, I will be spending time exploring the various aspects of Martial Arts. I'll be covering some of the fundamental aspects, such as styles, weapons, and basic techniques, as well as the many venues Martial Arts finds itself today. Whereas I am a student of one style, I appreciate many of them and enjoy discussing the strengths of each.
Martial Arts is an art form and it's practioners are artists, embodying more than just punches and kicks. The study of Martial Arts, as my SiTaiGung says, is a training for the "body, mind and spirit."
The world is an evolving place and so has Martial Arts grown and changed over the years. Now, more than ever, our hectic lives demand that we pay attention to each aspect of our health, particularly the body, mind and spirit. Come share this world and join me on the journey through Martial Arts.
