Smoking in combat sports and martial arts.

As you can imagine this post is not a aimed at non-smokers but at the boys and athletes who have this vice.

I don’t want to judge your choice but simply help you give you a motivation to quit and to be able to perform higher in your martial art and in your sport.

Unfortunately the TV, film examples of the hard and tough types is always associated with a cigarette in hand and this stereotype seems to like it.

Those who play sports, and want to do it to the fullest of their abilities, cannot smoke: smoking, in fact, negatively affecting breath and muscle performance, is the cause of a lower sporting performance.

The truth, however, is that smoking and sports are irreconcilable, for two reasons:

  • Why smoking heavily alters every sporting performance
  • Why exercise in no way protects against the risk of more serious diseases
