A few more months and it's already time for our summer vacation. Have you decided what will you do with your leisure time? Although a lot of people would grab the opportunity to travel and explore the world during the summer season, there are also some individuals who prefer staying close to their home to relax and unwind.
But if you do not like to spend the sunny season without doing anything, here are three ways to spend your vacation productively:
Learn Playing a Musical Instrument
If you have always wished to learn to play the guitar or the piano, but never had the chance to do so, then this summer vacation is the perfect time for you to do it. When it comes to learning to play a musical instrument, it does not necessarily mean that you have to enroll in a music school because you can always learn it by yourself. But if you have a friend or a family member who can assist you to get to play a musical instrument, then that would be better.
Enroll at a Martial Arts Center
Another productive thing that you can do this summer season is to register at a martial arts center and learn self-defensive techniques. Learning martial arts is definitely beneficial because it will help you become healthy and fit; plus, martial arts will also help you learn to become patient and calm. However, unlike learning a musical instrument, enrolling at a martial arts center is really necessary especially if you want to be a great martial artist. So, check the Internet now and join yourself at the nearest martial arts center.
Read Tons of Books
If you do not like sweating off or participating in physical activities, then the best thing that you should do this summer vacation to make it productive is to read a lot of books. By reading books, you will not only get entertained by different stories, but your vocabulary will also improve. Reading has also been proven to stimulate the brain, so it will help you prepare for the next semester.
We hope you have a wonderful and productive summer vacation!
How do you usually spend your weekend? How about your Friday nights? Being an avid martial arts admirer, I often find myself spending my free times and day offs watching martial arts movie just to inspire me to be like them soon. So today, I’ll be sharing to you three amazing martial arts movies that every guy or every beginner martial arts students should watch.
The Legend of the Drunken Master
This one's classic, and with Jackie Chan top billing this movie, you will never be bored watching this film. The Legend of the Drunken Master was released in 1994 in Hong Kong; it showcased Jackie Chan's first traditional style martial arts film (which means there plenty of things to learn here). It's sequel, Drunken Master II, which was released last 2005, was considered by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 films of all times. Do you want to watch a comedy with intense martial arts fighting? This one's absolutely an excellent choice.
Written and directed by the one and only Quentin Tarantino, Kill Bill is also one of the best martial arts film that you'll ever watch. This two-part film was released in 2003, and it instantly became a huge hit. The movie, which was started by Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, and David Carradine, shares the story of an ex-assassin avenging her former colleagues for killing members of her wedding party and also trying to kill her. This American film is unconventional and yet amazing because it of its female protagonist who can kick your ass with her amazing martial arts and combat skills. (You go, girl!)
Once Upon a Time in China
Of course, this list would never be completed without a Jet Li movie. Once Upon a Time in China was released in 1991, it became a huge hit that several sequels were released. The story focuses on Wong Fei-hung (Jet Li), a martial arts instructor during the 19th century.
And that’s it! Watching these films will absolutely encourage you to try even better with your fighting skills, or even motivate you to enroll to the nearest MA center.
