Sifu Rafael Gomez - Coaching Call Podcast

Sifu Rafael starts off by explaining that martial arts can be beneficial for people of all ages, but as we get older, our bodies start to change, and we need to adjust our training accordingly. Martial arts can help with flexibility, balance, and overall health. He notes that many people over 40 have sedentary jobs and may not get enough exercise, which can lead to health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Martial arts can help address these issues and improve overall health and well-being.

Sifu Rafael also talks about how martial arts can improve mental health. As we age, we may start to feel a sense of stagnation or lack of purpose. Martial arts can provide a sense of accomplishment and challenge, which can be fulfilling and help combat feelings of depression and anxiety.

We also discuss the practical benefits of martial arts for older adults, such as self-defense skills. Sifu Gomez notes that older adults may be more vulnerable to attacks, and knowing self-defense can provide a sense of security and confidence.
