Martial Arts

PostBy: Flyer5 On: Tue Apr 15, 2014 10:07 pm

There must be a few here. My daughter has been taking class now for about 6 months. I quit smoking back in December and needed something to fill the gap. Also my resolution is to get back in shape. The wife and I started taking class a little over a month ago. I took Kung Fu when I was younger so I had a clue what we were in for. I found out just how much fossilitus ( I know I made it up ) has set in over the years. But I feel I am stretching out. My daughter enjoys us taking the class as well because we can practice together. And because she can teach us since she has been taking it longer. I am fighting an old ankle injury but can work around it. My wife is having fun because I see the smile when she gets to practice any self defense techniques on me. If anyone has been on the fence about starting I say go for it. Now I just hope I can start running again. Not sure how the ankle will hold up.

Don't run. there are plenty of other exercises you can do. Favoring that ankle you are sure to injure something else. Nobody should run unless you have that natural fluid form you see on the best runners, otherwise you are asking for trouble.

You are probably right. I need to find something to get rid of the extra 20 I have acquired since food has been so good.

If your ankle is up for it, walking can be just as beneficial and less stress on the joints.

If not, check to see if there is an aqua exercise program near by. Running in water is very low impact, yet gives a good overall work out about equal to running on land. Just about all the schools and colleges around here that have a swimming pool run such programs for the local residents.

Getting in a pool and swimming some laps is the best thing there is. This does require a pool though. Very easy on the joints. 3 years ago I to kicked the habit, hip problems stopped me from running so I used a bike, thought that would be easier on the hip. There was this funny clicking in my knee, didn't hurt, just kept going. Mistake, Dr. ended taking part of meniscus from my knee. :)

Get a bicycle if you worried about the ankle.

Lot of good advice here Flyer, anything that shocks the injured joint will do nothing but make it worse. From experience, two knee replacements & a massive rotator cup repair I have pretty much figured that one out. My mistake was taking a somewhat violent form of karate plus what I learned from the ROK's, in retrospect I should have gotten into Judo but there are plenty of joint friendly forms of exercise, don't know your age but the older you get it seems the harder it is to lose but pushing away from a table always helps unless your too weak like me.

It is tough when older. I think if the technique is done correctly in practice there should be little injury. The instructor will mention if the way you are doing something will lead to problems and show the correct way. I also tend to like the more explosive form. I am more of a bull in a china shop. I think I would bore easily with anything less and probably not stay with it. Any fights I have been in in the past would tend to be that way as well. Not that I am doing this to look for fights but for self defense. I am only 45 and I think still in decent shape for my age but can definitely feel the effects of neglect I have put my body through. The extra weight makes 25- 30 push ups a chore as well.

The best way to lose weight is to eat just 100 calories less (one slice of bread or one spoon of sugar) and exercise 100 calories more. Every two weeks you will lose a pound, 25 pounds in one year. By losing slowly there is no pain and will accustom yourself to the new way. With a rigid diet to lose weight fast , once you quit the weight comes back.

The problem is the quitting smoking, food tastes so much better. :)

Then you have to think of something else beside food. Doubling or tripling sexual activity would be good and could supply healthful exercise.
