The July 2012 issue of TaeKwonDo Times features articles related to health and fitness within the context of the martial arts. From our cover story featuring Chip Townsend, a Black Belt who overcame many physical adversities throughout his storied career, to practical advice on keeping yourself safe from strangers and predators in the article “Door Challenge” by columnist Alex Haddox, we offer a myriad of perspectives on heath and safety aimed specifically at martial arts practitioners, but of interest to the general population of readers. There’s something for everyone in the July 2012 issue, including a Tribute to S. Henry Cho, a pioneer in martial arts in America, an interview with the owner of Hard Drive, a successful MMA gym in Iowa, and a column on how to recover from a serious head injury. Even if you’re not a fan of martial arts you will no doubt find articles of interest.
