The Fastest Way to Lose Weight and Get in Shape.
Martial arts (such as kickboxing and tae kwon do) combine highly physical exercise with the mental discipline found in yoga and other Eastern techniques. On a purely physical level, the dynamic kicks, punches and blocks create lean, powerful muscles, while the intense cardiovascular workout boosts stamina and burns fat. The therapeutic benefits of kicking and punching shouldn't be underestimated either. If you're looking to let off steam there's no better therapy than a little controlled aggression.
