At first glance, yoga and martial arts seem like everything but a match made in heaven. In fact, they appear to be opposing forces, one slow and endearing, and the other merciless and crude. Beneath this seemingly stormy relationship, a deeper truth lies buried. Namely, once you make an effort to grasp the bigger picture, you become aware that there are many ways in which these practices can actually complement each other. Yoga and martial arts surely are not birds of a feather, but they can certainly flock together towards a new, exciting fitness frontier.

In my new YouTube video below, I demonstrated some exercises that strengthen the wrists, fingers, knuckles, and grip, in addition to the muscles of the upper body. Allow a realistic time frame for working up to the more difficult exercises.

In the video below, I demonstrate a calisthenics progression for Dragon flag, a technical, difficult, and cool looking movement credited to Bruce Lee. Rocky Balboa also used the Dragon flag as part of training for his fight with Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Dragon flag works most (if not all) of the torso, as well as the hips and glutes. In my opinion, the Dragon flag most difficult bodyweight training exercise for the abdominals that I can think of.

 2014, the Year of the Horse, is trotting off into the cold, crisp sunset. Looking back, I was able to achieve many of my goals for this year but not all. I guess the ones that I didn’t get will have to be added to next years list. Something to look forward to.
