So many times the question is asked, "which art should I do?" Now, there are many valid answers, based on the needs of the person asking. Those needs may vary enormously based on geographical location, occupation, etc etc. But the key that is often missed, especially for hobbyists, is that you'll get the benefits of the things you keep doing. Given that the main threats to people in developed nations are the diseases of inactivity, the best exercise for you is the one that you'll keep doing Similarly, we can become very po-faced about the reasons for training. Like gym culture, it can be all about smashing goals, destroying PBs, demolishing opponents, becoming teh de4dly. Efficacy and enjoyment aren't mutually exclusive of course, but in many ways we could focus on the latter not the former So this struck me as very relevant to a lot of MA training, even though it mentions running.
