The quality of your health will determine your martial art.

Catch a cold of contract a flu virus, then no martial arts for you for a little while.

Training injuries, then there is a need to take time out to heal properly.

Conditioning oneself prevents injuries and illnesses, by making the body resilient types of ailments.

Having a healthy diet and lifestyle also helps to stay strong.

I believe that health is the basis for martial arts, as without health, it is not possible to become a proficient maist for very long.

This is why, that those maists that maintain their health in to old age, in doing so, can continue to practice martial arts.

While those that continue with martial arts in their later years and give up their health and being polite to say "let themselves go" martial arts for them becomes a daily challenge.

Discounting those maists that have health issues, due to circumstances that are out of their control.

Martial arts health benefits of staying youthful and mobil, minimizing injuries, including preventable aches and pains is possible, when reaching old age.

Just for a moment to consider on, how to improve your martial arts, strength and performance instantly.

The answer is, to improve the "quality" of everything you are doing now.

From the "quality" of air you breathe, to the "quality" water you drink, to the "quality" food you eat.

There is no extra need for training sessions, only to improve the "quality" when doing them.

Improve the quality of your kicks and punches, will make them faster and stronger.

As rushing at anything will loose the "quality" aspect.

Always triving for "quality" will lead to a "quality" healthy life.

Wanting to make something of "quality" then "quality" materials are needed.

If what goes in to you is "quality" then what comes out of you will be also.

Not having much time for training martial arts, then use some little time you have, to practice some discipline and stop doing something that can be improved on and replace it wity something better.

Such as replacing sweetners, white sugar for brown, next improvement would lead to only using honey.

Multiple this one sweetener example aspect in other areas of your life, will improve the entire "quality" of life you are leading now.

As the saying goes "there is always room for improvement"

Instead of just sitting and watching super heroes train like them instead.

Is this making sense?

Being a healthy person does make living life easier, that's for sure. Being aware of what helps to stay healthy and what to avoid are very important aspects of living a long and healthy, active life.

On another level, one opponent or both are attacking another person's health, or trying to cause bodily harm, damage or illness.

Self defence or preservation goes far beyond just opponent's, but all types of possible attacks, that can lower the health level of any individual; which could also involve the spirit.

"Letting one's health go" as mentioned earlier is lowering one's guard down and leaving oneself vulnerable.

Nutrition is self defence, just that it isn't usually viewed as such.

Physical exrcise is important not just for the body but also for the mind:)

Being frail and weak isn't really necessary for many people, but many take that path through life out of poor life choices.

While others will over indulge lacking self discipline and cause many illnesses for themselves due to poor eating habits and noticeably not exercising.

Welcome to the age of female superheroes
https://youtu.be/CV1IuDACaeo

This topic knowingly, will not be a popular one, but contrary to that, I will continue, due to the importance factor alone.

If there were twin brothers and the father was also a martial art instructor, due to sibling rivalry, they competed at everything.

With, food, training, conditioning, genetics all similar.

One of the twins wanting to develop an edge or something that increases his odds against a fight with his brother.

This is where health comes in to play.

Health is internal martial arts.

Does "Survival of the fittest" sound familiar?

Internal martial arts is about becoming more aware of nature and applying it to one's life for, health, longevity, happiness and survival.

We are a part of nature, just like every other living thing on earth.

Back to the story.
So Knowing this aspect of health and martial arts, he asks his father if I he can live in the mountain wilderness for a while, living among the wild life, with clean air and clean running water, living mostly by catching and eating salmon.

Meanwhile the other brother wanted to stay in the inner city, spending plenty of hours sitting on the couch, smoking cigarettes, playing video video games and eating microwave frozen burgers with his friends.

As now it is obvious, that it is the life choices that are going to make the difference between these two individuals.

As it is about health benefit choices also between you and your opponent.

As it is often the survival of the fittest in nature, that wins and carries on the blood line.

Chi "life force" cannot be separated from blood.

Oftern Chi is related to internal martial arts, blood line included.

Strong bloodline and chi.

Healthy fit people are more attractive, it is how we are wired in our brains to want to mate and reproduce with those that are genetically beneficial, to continue on with the cycle of, the survival of the fittest and at times the funniest or fiercest, for Example : https://youtu.be/VuNe6octbJ0

So women don't like muscles?

Quality of health is the basis for martial arts.

Ok

Just workout be healthy, any questions?

Any questions I have regarding health, I ask my PCP and Cardiologist. Very important to me to adhere to their advice, so much so, that if my Sensei and his Sensei were still alive, I'd ignore all of their suggestions completely.

I'm with you sensei8 about asking my cardiologist, as there are many different types of issues regarding the heart, that need to be identified and treated appropriately.

However my better half is the real person, being obsessed with keeping me healthy, luckily enough, as if not for her, Instead would be nothing more than plant food by now.

She has more common sense regarding health than myself and has me checked out periodically from head to toe, to inside out, xrays, blood and urine tests, lung specialist, skin specialists, cardiologist's and of course the dentist.

Fighting my way back to health and beyond has really been her doing, with support and encouragement for over a decade and a half, since having four heart attacks.

As when she found me I was suffering from malnutrition and major health issues, such as with my lungs and many types of skin issues that doctors just gave up treating.

With all of my health issues now under control, martial arts has been the way for me to maintain it, mostly with proper daily exercise and nutrition.

I hope to inspire others to take care of themselves better and in doing so, they help others also.

There are plenty of room and options for a healthier lifestyle, I just like to participate in this way of thinking with others in as many ways possible, where ever I might be.

Thanks for reading my rambling comments ROFL
