BBC News – Karate punching power \’all in the brain\’

via BBC News – Karate punching power \’all in the brain\’.

The BBC are running an article that suggests training in martial arts helps to build brain cells!

Admittedly for combat sports that train full contact all the good work is probably undone by regular blows to the head, but for the rest of us this is just another piece of evidence that helps to support the idea I’ve always subscribed to that martial arts are good for your health. It may be a stretch but increasing brain matter seems to me to be a good way to lower the risk of adverse brain related conditions in later life.
