People now days have a wide variety of choices when it comes to getting in better shape. There are a lot of good personal and group fitness programs out there to choose from. Not to mention a host of fitness equipment and gear that one can have in their own home or use at a local gym. And if merely getting in shape is what you are looking for then maybe one of those programs or pieces of equipment are what you need. However, if you are looking to get in fantastic shape and much MORE then consider martial arts.
Our founder Grand Master Park knew the value of time and how important it was to use our time wisely. He saw martial arts as an activity virtually anyone can integrate into their daily routines. And that it was an optimum way to keep in shape while also learning valuable life and self defense skills. He understood that if you used the same amount of time for some fitness program vs. martial arts there was a far greater reward to studying martial arts.
Not only are you learning to defend your self and your loved ones in martial arts, you are also learning many coordinate values and skills than transcend merely going to some gym or staying at home working out.
Martial Arts values (a partial list):
- Self Defense
- Complete and balanced body fitness
- Proper diet (Organic, non-GMO’s, proper food combinations, how to use supplements)
- First Aid, CPR and Eastern Health education
- Character development (reducing traits of the negative ego)
- Whole life philosophy (understanding the complete person, body, mind, spirit, etc)
Note: We cannot vouch for all “martial arts” as there are some that do not meet our standards. With anything it is up to you to do the research and comparisons and decide what martial arts you feel is worthy of your time, etc.
