This type of clothing which fits to the anathomical shape of the body, firmly compressing the joints and the muscles, helps to stabilize them and improves their stability and prevents injuries.

It is also researched and proven that muscles and joints enhance better and faster their mobility while being gently compressed.

On top of it, compression t-shirt keeps the body warm. Even sweating excessively, with compression t-shirt, you don’t get the feeling that your body is wet.  It doesnt absorb water and transports it outside.  It dries fast, so it is also easy to wash and get ready to use for the next training session the same day.

Faster joint and muscle recovery and relieve muscle and joint stiffness and soreness is another reason of wearing compression clothes, this time after the training. We will introduce our own Karate-Outfit compression t-shirt from November 2014, dedicated to karate fighters. 


Yuan Ming Yuan - The Old Summer Palace in Beijing

North West from Beijing centre, app 30-40 minutes’ drive by underground, there is one of the most beautiful places in the Chinese capital. It is called Yuan Ming Yuan. It is a huge park complex with a beautiful system of lakes, pounds, canals and pedestrian alleys. Lakes are quite shallow because they are made by hand by Chinese people. The ground digged out from these lakes were used to form the landscape: small hills and valleys. Shallow lakes allow to grow huge amount of lotus. Right now, in July, is the lotus festival and the lotus flowers are in full blossom in a dazzling array of colours and shapes.  

The park was opened to the public in the late 1980‘s! For more than 120 years, until 1988, this area was abandoned and wild. A place with a remarkable history was just forgotten for over 100 years before it became a public park.

Taichi in Beihai Park (Beijing)

Another beautifully created park with artificial lakes, islands and hills where you find peace and harmony.

I entered through the north gate and headed to the Temple of Five Dragons where I was following a middle aged man who looked he would probably train tai chi as he was wearing the typical loose pants. I saw him entering the temple for a short prayer then I followed him further to the site of the Nine Dragon Screen (wall) where I noticed other people training with weapons, playing badminton and ???
