We have all heard of oriental medicine, but few of us have ever really tried it. After all, what can a few needles really do? What people do not realize is that there is yet another non-traditional medicine that comes from our friends in the East and it comes in the form of martial arts. Karate vs Taekwondo? Both are important culturally and physically. Karate originated in Japan and Taekwondo in Korea.
Since you need to exercise anyway, why not it be martial arts, like karate? In addition to being healthy, you will learn to defend yourself.
