    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Why do Martial Arts?

    I realize this question seems a bit odd, but it's a serious question! I've got a bunch of friends that want to do Martial Arts, but find crazy opposition from their parents partially because they don't know enough MA to make a proper argument for their favor in the first place. I've listed what I know are advantages to taking up a legit MA, like:

    Exercise (cardio, functional fitness)
    Self-Defense (eg. knowing how to play on the ground so you can get back on your feet quickly, how to defend yourself)
    Meeting new people
    Siphoning anger (I know MA really helps me relax)


    Can you guys think of any other good reasons? Thanks for your help in advance.
