I just watched parts of a documentary based on this book. In my opinion, it's probably still at the "hypothesis" stage in the scientific method. I'd like to see how the data was collected. I suspect some of it was questionable (anecdotal, voluntary response, non-random surveys, etc.)

Iíll stick with the old adage ďa body in motion stays in motionĒ.

Iím old already and ainít dead yet.

Yes Iíve got a bad knee, bad shoulder, elbow and now have Plantar fasciitis but thatís not just caused by Karate. Iíve lived a rough life in general. But Iím still kicking. Donít see myself changing any time soon.

My Shinshii was 84 when he retired and still trains daily. My Judo instructor was 72 and throwing men in their teens and 20ís. I see no correlation between MA and shortened life span. Albeit probably not great for your joints but what sport or physical activity done for a lifetime is?

No I think Iíll continue to train and let God determine when itís time to go home.

There was a very interesting thread discussing this video/book on Iain Abernathy's forum:

https://iainabernethy.co.uk/content/karate-shortens-your-lifespan

Iain's opinion, with very strong arguments for his view is very clear.

He gets the point across very well and gives common sense facts to support his argument. Very well said and I think he proves his point very well.

He's using anecdotal facts, though. More scientific studies need to be done to confirm his hypothesis.
