An individual owes it to himself and his family to constantly maintain and im- prove his health. The students will realize how important Taekwon- Do is to human health through the following article written by Dr. Robert S. Arner a black belt owner of Taekwon-Do. Taekwon-Do may be practiced individually or in groups without the use of weights or special equipment. Since the body sets its own limits, injuries or strains are raere and the physical condition of the student paces him automatically. The entire muscle system of the body, from the fingers to the toes, is brought into play.
