Everyone will get a cold at some time, and Americansaverage two to four colds a year. There are certain lifestyle
changes you can adopt to help prevent and/or limit the number of times you get sick.
First and foremost is simple hygiene to avoid the organisms that cause respiratory infections, including colds and
flues. Wash your hands before you eat, after using the restroom, after going outside and after contact with individuals who are ill.
Ordinary soap is sufficient. If you are sick, please cover your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze. Touching objects like doorknobs or
toilet seats does not spread flues and colds.
To help your immune system, which fights infections, makesure you eat a balanced diet that includes foods rich in
antioxidants like fresh,dark-colored vegetables. Vitamin C and E may be helpful but there is no evidence to prove its benefits. There may be
some evidence that vitamin C may reduce the duration of a cold. Herbal remedies such as Echinacea have been commonly taken to prevent colds.
However, in a recent study, no evidence of benefit was found.
People who smoke tend to get sick more often. Avoiding cigarette smoke altogether will avoid injury to your airways, which will make you less susceptible
to respiratry infections. Smoking also lowers your immunity as a whole.
Nothing will lower your immunity greater than being stressed out. High-stressed individuals are twice as likely to get
sick than low-stressed individuals. So take measures to reduce stress, such as coming to class regularly.
Between the months of October and December, the influenza vaccine is offered to prevent the flu. It is not totally
effective in preventing the flu in all people, but lessens the chance of serious complications and makes the flu milder in severity. It is only
effective for one flu season and needs to be administered annually.
Finally, if you become ill, resist the urge to demand antibiotics from your physician. 95% of our colds are caused by
a virus that is not effectively treated by antibiotics. Many bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics due to the overuse of those drugs,
and this is causing major problems in hospitals throughout the United States and elsewhere.
Historical Certainty and Martial Arts
Part II.It is a well known, established fact that the above statement is actually a continuation of a tradition of Chinese Martial Arts. It was only at the turn of the 20th centurythat we find public documents making reference to Chinese WuShu in any detail. Previous to this, the documents that exist go back a few hundred years and the MSS are not publicly prepared documents,but of other sort with authorship being an ongoing issue of scholarship to this day. We are fortunate that many brilliant minds are working on such material, but we must also be cautious about accepting scholarly viewpoints that are designed to support the political or social agenda of a few.

Is Martial Arts the Ultimate Fitness Training?
Before the advent of the 90''s, very little was known in the United States, and still knowledge is rare, of the powerful methods known to some in the martial arts community. Most people to this day view martial arts as a practice only for the uneducated.

Dr. Harkins Accepts Membership in the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame
All I can say is that I am grateful and want to thank my teacher Dr. David Brownridge without whose guidance I would not be here.”
Dr. Harkins in acceptance of USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame 2004 membership
On the wall of my teacher’s school is a sign that says “We who study the art of kung Fu consider it our responsibility and duty to continue to improve our character, to aid the weak and helpless, and show respect for all mankind.”
This is the Kung Fu oath we were required to learn and recite upon command. As most of you already know the “kung fu oath” displayed on the wall of our studio is different in certain ways. We provide the “oath” as both a guideline and an uplifting message. To understand and do. Not just to memorize and recite. We seek to support each person’s individual effort to improve not only the physical aspects but also the mental and spiritual aspects of their training. The “kung fu oath” is a tool that helps a person get where they want to go.
Martial arts is not just a method of self-defense. It is also a method of self-cultivation, personal discipline, mental and spiritual development. In a day when the martial arts has become coarse and filled with violent and mean personalities we owe a debt of gratitude to masters who hold the line against such modernism in the martial arts world and who fight to retain the intrinsic value and vast treasure pure and with honor. To do otherwise disgraces the masters of the past to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude and respect.
Traditional Chinese Exercises for Health and Longevity
Long ago in a time of antiquity, there came masters of various mysterious skills. Some of these masters were Taoist, some were Buddhist, some were unknown save for their enigmatic lives and presence in far away places, caves, forests, hermitages.Others were skilled mendicants, physicians, monks and so forth, that lived among the populace in their respective places in monasteries, palaces, and others who had ordinary practices but extraordinary skills, and kung fu masters or traditional physicians.

Commentaries on the 24 Essentials
Martial Arts has changed a great deal in the last few years. Some of the changes are welcome and it can be said that certain aspects of martial arts training now are superior to some of the ways of ancient times. I am not saying that the new ways are better and the old ways are inferior. Indeed, that is not the case, in my opinion, but that the times are different and society is different and everything today moves at a much faster pace and people generally will not take the time to train the way it was done in the past.
