The legs are the first to go
The saying goes that “the legs are the first to go.” How true this is depends on many factors of course. If you eventually get arthritis, knee problems, hip problems, ankle problems, or diabetes and you have to have surgeries on your legs well before you retire, your primary means of transportation is now out of commission or severely curtailed. It is important to get up and move! Doctors always recommend exercise. Martial arts are a great way to get leg exercise.
