Purple Belt Anatomy

For the first time you will begin to study human anatomy in significant detail. Here are just a few of the many reasons why anatomical studies are important:

Benefits of Anatomical Studies

  • They help you understand strengths and weaknesses of the body. This is useful for both knowing where to strike an opponent in a given situation, and when and where to protect yourself.
  • They show you how various systems of the body rely on one another and how disturbing or enhancing one part of the body can impact another part of the body.
  • They provide insights about how to manipulate the human structure to preclude, predict, or encourage future movements.
  • They help you better understand any injuries or illnesses you may have over time.
  • They provide insights into how you might reduce stress, anxiety, and distress to improve your current condition.
  • They help to preserve the quality and extend the duration of life.

Through the remainder of your studies in Tensoku Ryu you will examine, in great detail, the various systems of the human anatomy. We begin with the Circulatory System.
