Try Kung Fu Without Getting Hurt

I love watching the Kung Fu Master compete against the Yogi. Since I know how to do yoga, I've always wanted to try Kung Fu. Truthfully I haven't yet because: 1) I don't like hurting other people, and 2) more importantly, I fear getting hurt myself. Now I don't have to worry.

Check out this Kung Fu game for the PlayStation 2, unveiled at the IFO 2007 (it's a big tech convention) in China. The woman says "it's a Kung Fu Wii," but she's not exactly "up" on the whole gaming scene. What's cool is that there are sensors on your wrists and ankles that let you punch and kick, and work your heart and your muscles completely, but you never come in contact with an actual human being.

The only way you'll get hurt is if you accidentally kick the wall or punch an unsuspecting passerby. The Nintendo Wii may have boxing but it doesn't have a Kung Fu game. Of course, the game hasn't hit the stores yet, but check out this video and tell me what you think.

Fit I have done kungfu as a kid, it is not about being hurt! And as a yogi you have the great advantage of halready aving the supple body you need for martial arts. I am going to begin kickboxing next week by the way! But Fit this reminded med that I would love to see more articles about martial arts and their benefits. I think lots of girl would like if only they gave it a chance. Martial arts are a real full body workout and I love them because you don't get bulky but get a lean strong body.

You shouldn't get hurt in a real Kung Fu class. Martial arts is practiced in a controlled learning environment, it's not about hurting each other. Plus, there's much more to it than throwing punches and kicks into the air. You would get so much more out of a real class, and you would learn some practical self-defense.
