Michele's blog is Just a Thought. I am a student and instructor of Okinawa Kenpo and a student of Tai Chi. In April 2007, I injured my knee during a two-person bo form. I had a complete ACL tear. On May 15, 2007, I had my ACL reconstructed using a hamstring graft. This blog shares my thoughts on Karate, Tai Chi, ACL Reconstruction and the Challenges of Parenting.
• What type of exercises are beneficial and which ones are dangerous?
• What are the effects of aging and what impact do they have on training?
• How can baby boomers keep up in a class of Gen-Xers?
• What types of injuries are common after forty and how can you prevent them?
In addition to providing a wealth of fitness and training information, author Sang H. Kim addresses the fact that many older martial artists are looking for something more meaningful than just a good workout.
His positive and knowledgeable approach to taking up or continuing martial arts training after 40 is inspiring, reassuring and informative. This book should be read by every adult martial artist regardless of age.
