As a new year begins, I am going to start Arnis training. I am fascinated by its use of weapons as well as its fast, potentially-lethal, but graceful movements.
A few friends ask if I have hidden violent tendencies. I don’t know. Maybe. 🙂
What I know for sure is, if I will be diligent about it, I will gain a lot:
- I will be stronger and fitter
- I will be mentally tougher
- I will have a deeper appreciation of my country’s history and culture
- I will be exposed to the thrilling world of martial arts
I’m sure that I will experience many more exciting benefits as I go along.
What a year it’s going to be!
