Martial Artist Cyclists

This group is for chainlinkers who practice martial arts or are interested in martial arts. I practice Tae Kwon Do and have found that cycling increases my stamina and helps me to perform better in classes.  I wondered whether other cyclists who practice MA have had a similar experience. I also thought it would be fun to connect with other martial artists in Chicago. See More

"Anyone want to try out Tae Kwon Do? Its a fun way to stay in shape while learning to defend yourself. My school is recruiting students right now and it would be awesome to practice with friends. Let me know and I will send you all the details."

Hey April! I've been busy for the past several weeks, but was wondering if yoga is still going at Stone Soup on Wednesdays? Didn't see it on the calendar last week when I checked and just curious if it's still going.

Hope you're doing great!

Shelley
