Martial arts are dangerous
The British Medical Association Guide To Sports Injuries states:
Combat sports such as boxing, judo, karate or kung fu make tough demands on the body; training is intense, and participation requires all-round fitness. Regardless of the fitness of the participants, however, the aggressive blows traded between opponents means that these sports always carry a serious risk of injury.

Having never had any martial
arts experience I was really interested in starting classes with Newcastle
Tai Chi. The classes are so well organised and structured that you feel each
week you are making progress and developing. Sifu Waller's level of skill in
martial arts is astounding and learning from someone of such advanced
knowledge is humbling. The work is challenging but incredibly rewarding and
you can supplement the weekly lessons with workshops to really enhance the
experience. I am really excited to keep training each week and would
recommend the classes to anyone interested in martial arts.
