I receive a lot of email from people asking me the best thing they should wear when they're practicing kung fu or tai chi. I own and operate a traditional kung fu and tai chi school. I tell them they have several choices. To begin, where the uniform that the school recommends if you are able to attend a traditional school. Wear it with pride and respect and keep it clean.
Your kung fu uniform helps to give you a unified feel that will enhance your group energy in the class. When you're not in class, select from clothes that are comfortable. Here are a few options for your clothing to choose from.
If you’re new to martial arts, you probably have many questions on your mind about your training, like how to develop your strength and stamina as well as how to master your techniques. However,
there is one aspect about training that you should also think about: flexibility.
Flexibility is something that you can develop with stretching exercises. Stretching is really important before you do any heavy workout or training. They prevent cramps and if you consistently do them long enough, you will see a great improvement in your performance when it’s time to do that sparring session.
Flexibility is emphasized nowhere else better than in the Jujitsu martial arts. Even kids can get with stretching. They even make a kids stretching machine - http://www.bestlegstretchers.com/shop-gear/kids-leg-stretching-machine/.
When translated directly, Jujitsu means “flexible” or “pliable”. So, whatever type of Jujitsu you are practicing, whether it Brazilian or something else, it’s very important that you train your body to become flexible. The same holds true for any other type of martial arts – the more flexible you are, the better you will be at fighting.
We use to like Jackie Chan during the 80's. He was obviously a nice role model. Simply put I actually started learning jeet kune do. And yup I truly enjoyed the last picture too!
