That's awesome. I think a big part of being active is finding something that you love.

Martial Arts is great!!!

I found it about 4 years ago - to me it isn't boring like going to the gym. Always learning.

I'm about to go for my black belt in Isshinryu Karate. Been working at it 3 years. I started losing weight so I wouldn't be huffing and puffing so much. I think I'll lose about 15 more pounds - the test is scheduled for the first week in February.

I also take TaiChi - been taking that about 4 years. It has done wonders for my bad knees and got me moving so well I started the karate after about a year.

Don't give up -- It's all about practice and moving and becoming that badass you always wanted to be

Sounds like fun. I might need to keep my eye out for a class around here.

I've been wanting to box for years and recently started doing a bit with my personal trainer and love it. It's so true about how much easier it is to exercise if you are doing something you enjoy doing.

My dojo also offers Kendo (japanese swords), Nunchaku, Aikido, Bo-staff and other arts too - they're lots of fun.

I've lost 45+ pounds now (I'll be posting my final stats on the 20th, as it will have been a full year on my new lifestyle change), and the martial arts definitely helped.

Here are some of my favorite MA sites:

Enjoy,

Barbara

thanx!
