Martial art- the passion of a combat sport

25 May

kim_jumpThe internal meaning of the Martial Arts is “art of Mars” where Mars is the god of war in roman. It is a Latin word. Now a day Martial art is generally used in the sense of fighting. But in the year of 1550, it was a tradition of combat practices. I saw people who are much interested to learn martial arts. It becomes a fashion to learn. It is the inspiration of Jackie Chan. From childhood itself parents are taking their child to the karate class; they want to see them as a white belt or a black belt. After watching the action movies the kids become interested in martial art. They have started to see the martial art as a fighting.
One day while travelling I met one kid who wore a white karate dress and was practicing his steps. Suddenly he asked me whether he is looking like Jackie Chan or not. He asked me whether I have seen the movie named The Karate Kid or not. Most probably he was maximum 6 or 7 years old. I got surprised to see him and his sudden questions. And I realized that day, how much martial art has taken the place. It is about a small kid. Now you people think that how much young people are affected by this.

That was about the karate. One more martial art which is renowned as wrestling becomes very famous between the teenagers. The television channel WWE is famous for wresting. Maximum all teenagers use to watch it daily. And sometimes they are trying to practice those. It could be more dangerous. Unknowingly the kids are affected by those steps. So it is a request for the parents if you saw any kind of this activity please stop your child. Make them learn the Martial Art then allow them to do those.

I request those people who are suffering from bone problem or a lack of patience or need to do meditation martial arts can work as a very good medicine for these problems.
