But in reality, the true aim of martial arts is quite exactly the opposite.

Martial arts is not just about fighting, combat, or self-defence, its underlying philosophy stresses that people should live in peace and harmony.

Why you need to make stretching part of your everyday routine

The body is flexible. It’s designed to be able to bend, flex and stretch. You should be able to bend and reach that something you dropped on the floor. You should be able to apply sunscreen to your own back. You should be able to reach that book you need to read at the top shelf.

These are simple activities. Nothing grand about them, you merely stretched out a bit. However, if have difficulties in doing such simple motions, then you maybe you need to stretch your limits. You need a stretching program.
