Martial Arts After 40 by Sang H. Kim, Sang Kim

Martial Arts After Forty is the first book ever to explore the needs and advantages of the over-forty martial artist. It takes an in-depth look at the realities of training in mid-life including:

• What type of exercises are beneficial and which ones are dangerous?
• What are the effects of aging and what impact do they have on training?
• How can baby boomers keep up in a class of Gen-Xers?
• What types of injuries are common after forty and how can you prevent them?

In addition to providing a wealth of fitness and training information, author Sang H. Kim addresses the fact that many older martial artists are looking for something more meaningful than just a good workout.

His positive and knowledgeable approach to taking up or continuing martial arts training after 40 is inspiring, reassuring and informative. This book should be read by every adult martial artist regardless of age.

This is a very easily read book with good food for thought. I was very surprised at what I learned not just on finding a balance between my body slowing down at 40+ and the desire to still train hard but thing things I wish I had learned earlier. The book should have been named 'Martial arts for the Mature Artist' since it's teachings is for those who have wanting to advance past just the physical aspects of training. There is much direction given for both physical and philosophical training.
