The Health/Martial Arts Link


For some time I have been interested in the link between martial arts and health - particularly with regard to the practice of Tai Chi which is widely recognised as excellent for both.

Health imageIn particular I have been intrigued by the questions:
 “Why do the greatest health benefits come when the practice most closely follows martial effectiveness?”
“Why does focus on healthy practice bring significant development in martial skill?”
The following article expresses some thoughts as to how Tai Chi in particular and martial arts practice in general relate to those two questions by looking at some of the elements involved and describing some achievable outcomes.

Ian Deavin is an experienced practitioner and teacher who has studied Tai Chi in China and Europe. He is BCCMA recognised (British Council for Chinese Martial Arts) and a certified instructor of the Chinese Internal Arts Association (CIAA). Ian holds classes in Shefford, Luton and Letchworth.
