    How to Choose a Martial Arts Gym

    How to Choose a Martial Arts Gym

    Whether you are a novice or a professional, choosing a suitable martial arts gym deserves time and proper consideration. It’s all too easy to rush a sign-up based purely on location, price, or to train with a famed coach or athlete. While there are advantages to considering either or all of these factors, choosing a gym requires a multi-faceted approach. You may not be able to get everything you want, but it is important that you feel satisfied, comfortable and safe in your new gym.

    Learning to fly

    Heading towards Tower Bridge today in the rain, the light changed to amber just as I was reaching the approach to the span. I pulled my bike out in front of the traffic, waiting while a bus, a truck, passed in front of me on the Highway. I used to work near here – years ago now – so this neighbourhood always has a resonance for me, an echo of another life; but this morning I was thinking not about those vanished years but about the time, only four months ago, when waiting for the light here, being anywhere near here, made my heart pound with fear, with the certainty that I was bound to be knocked off my bike and flattened by a ton or two of moving metal. Four months ago I wasn’t a cyclist. Today, I am.

    Exercises for hyperlordosis, how to remove the protrusion of the abdomen and back pain

    Excessive deflection in the lower back or hyperlordosis of the lumbar spine is an incorrect position of the spine, in which the lumbar curve becomes too deep. In this position, the stomach protrudes forward, and the pelvis goes back. This phenomenon is often found in non-professional athletes. Common causes of acquired lumbar hyperlordosis include overweight, pregnancy, osteoporosis, spondylolisthesis, and a sedentary lifestyle.
