I came across this particular style on YouTube and as I researched a little more on it i discovered that this style had very oriental routes not just Asians and Middle East or Gulf of Muslim countries. So i went in purely from an academic interest and I ended up being a big of the style and i will go for many courses if possible because i just loved the experience of going and learning something. It was very enjoyable for me to just be a student again. I also do it to be fit I do it specially the stomach isolations and movements like that are very good to make your core strong and lot of this requires extreme focus”.
