Fighting Arts Health Lab was born out of the desire to help life-long committed combat athletes achieve their performance objectives. Whether it is increasing physical strength, becoming more limber, developing explosive speed, using food to amplify energy levels, recovering faster from strenuous workouts, or ways to have productive conversations with healthcare professionals about overcoming a side-lining injury. Because we felt our community was underserved by the available online health and wellness websites, we created Fighting Arts Health Lab to fill that void to ensure that the community had an informational resource solely dedicated to the unique needs of those in the combat arts.
Our health and wellness content is developed and overseen by credentialed Subject Matter Experts in the areas that we cover. We lean on them to ensure the information you engage is accurate and aligned with the latest scientific findings. We respect your informational choices and it is our privilege to provide this content. As such, because we realize your time is limited and you will only invest in content that improves the quality of your life. We will work hard to earn and maintain your confidence, respect your choices, time and strive to continue providing you the latest most relevant combat arts health and wellness and lifestyle content that adds value to your life.
We also recognize that being a combat athlete is more than just working hard to improve our technique or skill level. It is a way of life for us. To reflect how we like to spend our free time we added a lifestyle section that is designed to entertain and captivate you. We invite you to explore the exotic travel destinations in Where We're Headed to uncover the wonders of the world as well as world class training facilities near those locations. We also suggest that you thumb through our book reviews in What We're Reading because after all we understand that we have to improve the mind as well as the body. We would also be remiss if we did not mention that we created a section solely dedicated to combat art films, What We're Watching. Who doesn't like watching a good action martial arts flick with a big bowl of popcorn? Lastly, we've also created a section for Stuff We're Eyeing. Why? Because we support combat athletes around the world who have brought their creative inspiration to life to make our everyday lives a little better.
In Japanese, there are three words for “heart”: shinzou, which refers to the physical organ, ha-to, which is the anglicized word for a love heart, and kokoro, which conceptually means, to unite heart, mind, and spirit: Kokoro defines these three elements as being indivisible from one other. During our journey if we can say that, ‘Fighting Arts Health Lab has a good kokoro,’ would indicate that we've created an melding point of the mind, heart, spirit and soul for those whose life we have touched. If that occurs then we will have accomplished our mission. We hope you will join us on this journey.
