I just came home from Aikido class and have been into it for two months. I am glad that I am able to do this continuously and hope to do this until I get old. It is a great physical fitness hobby for me and for you too if you would try it. It is an art and a self defense but it also is a good partner with alli if you want to lose weight. Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba from Japan.
Learning different martial arts is another way of keeping your body fit and disciplined. Regular training can help your body sweat out toxins. Aside from regularly working out using used gym equipment at home, why not try enrolling in a martial arts class like Karate, Aikido, or Jiu Jitsu to help you work out and learn an art of self defense. This will prove to be helpful for you in emergencies as well.
