He says: “It’s like internal medicine. A lot of people 60, 70-years-old are becoming so old that they can’t even walk properly. Whereas, I have seen the grandmasters who are 80, 90, 100-years-old and they are fit enough to walk, run and do all the things.”
“My aim is to make everyone fit enough to be strong. As you know, the diseases are spreading and martial arts is something which we can contribute as the best fitness in the world. So I teach a lot of secrets, how to clean organs, how to strengthen your heart. This we learnt from great Grand Masters from all over the world.” finishes the grandmaster.
