Benefits of Breathing

Pop Quiz! (You will not be judged or laughed at if you screw up.)
Fill in the blank: One of the hardest aspects of your martial arts practice is_______:
A)     Muscle conditioning
B)      Flexibility
C)      Breathing
The acceptable answer I am looking for is: C) Breathing

What’s so hard about breathing?! It’s something all living things instinctively know how to do, from the moment we are born to the last thing we do before we die. Think of it this way: you can gradually build up your muscle development and flexibility through the proper exercises and your formwork, but nothing feels worse than losing your breath while working out.
