    After rethinking a bit (see, I really do care, Joe)...

    If a person wanted to stay healthy and mostly pain-free for their entire life, then moderate amounts of yoga taught by a qualified instructor, and practiced at home as well, plus some sort of moderate to low impact cardio (swimming, biking, walking, hiking) would be a great thing.

    Avoid any sort of hard contact martial arts...done to excess. Properly taught BJJ or Judo would be fine, especially if done on excellent, suspended floor system. Striking arts, again, OK, not really familiar enough, I'd guess in moderation contact is OK.

    Again, moderation would be the key, as part of a broader exercise program.

    That way one could avoid the overuse injuries (like my shoulders, for example, from Judo).

    Of course, it's tough to be moderate when you are young, dumb, and full of that sticky white stuff.

    Again, after rethinking a bit, learning how to static stretch via expert yoga instruction is a good thing. I started yoga when I was about 27 years old, as I had seemingly chronic neck pain (from Judo of course). I basically was able to fix my neck and back problems by doing yoga under a competent (and rather hard-core-ish) instructor.

    It felt great, and I got quite flexible. Yoga is quite addictive, in a sense, because once you are able to get the relaxation response going, it feels very, very good. That plus some moderate cardio would be a great way to stay healthy for a long, long, time.

    But noooooo, I had to keep competing at Judo until I was late 40s...

    Yes, but... (always one of those).

    It's like anything else, good in-person instruction is very helpful, if you can afford the time and money.

    Other than that, dynamic stretching is better, especially before any sort of strenuous exercise, and some very simple stretches usually suffice for static stretching, especially of 'problem' areas.

    We sometimes view things out of context, and so do other people.
    And at this point, someone from my community, the Jiu-Jitsu community, invariably says: well what about real fighting?
    At which point I say, "Have you seen the recent butt scooting style of play? A whole match of stalling decided by an advantage point? No slams allowed? No heel hooks allowed? No striking? How is that real fighting?"
    Anyway, I have not trained Wing Chun, and it usually takes me a few decades of consistent practice to go the hang of anything with any meaningful understanding of it.
    So you're operating on the theory that all knowledge and systems have value it seems. I disagree with this. There are different ways and then there are better ways. Muay Thai is better than wing chun. Gjj is better than wing chun. Sambo is better than wing chun. It has been weighed ,measured and found wanting. Their operational theory is bullshit and their methods of training and sparring are bullshit.



    Their ability to fight bullshit. Wing Chun is self fellatio in silk pajamas.
