Diabetic Kung Fu


Diabetic Kung Fu

Diabetics who practice Kung fu, or any martial art, that has helped them not only physically but mentally as well. I have studied Wing Chun Kung fu for 12 years here in Boston's China town. It has helped me with circulation and a improved state of mind. I would love to hear your experiences as well.

Oh I might have an idea or two for you. Same basic neighborhood in terms of technique/practices. Same basic time frame in terms of study too +/-...

Not online frequently these days, but lets chat when time allows.

New to group
Hello I'm new to this group and diabetes. Only known for about 2 years (type 2), but have been hit hard with in April with 3 heart attacks and 5 by heart bypasses. So, needless to say I'm now watching everything.

I have been into karate (Isshin-Ryu) for 20+ years. I teach a small class of great guys. I'm jsut wondering what I have to watch out for as I train. I'm taking a break mid way threw now and eating a snack as sometimes my classes can go over 2 hours, and we workout outside mostly. (old school stuff)

Just wanted to say Hi and see if there are any ideas from anyone.
