Martial Arts for People Over 50 - You Can Get Involed & so can everyone else
I saw this video on WSJ.com and thought it would be a good topic to write about. Who ever says that you can't do marital arts at any point in your life. I believe you just have to take the step forward and do it. We have many students above the age of 50 at Grand Master Han's in Conway. I would hope that more people would become involved. Participating in taekwondo is a great workout. Not only is it a good work, it provides social interaction and a chance to learn new things all the time. It is much better than going to the gym and running on treadmill, lifting some weights, and then going home just to do the same thing again the next day or a couple days later. We always work to give our students new things to learn or show them a different application for something that they may already know. We can also tailor techniques and moves based on their ability to do them. Below you will find an article about an 80 year old master in our organization that started when she was 67. She will tell you that you are never too old.
