Further Information

(Goshin) Taiso = Goshin (protective) tai (body) + so (hardening) is a generic Japanese term for conditioning.

It can range from simply stretching to very serious conditioning. Essentially, it is whatever activity you do to help you get safely ready for some other activity.

In Japan you can see old folks who go to the park every morning and stretch who do it. (Interestingly enough, it is also the word for gymnastics too.)

Taiso is extremely scalable, from rehab on to training extreme athletes.

The severe end has a reputation as the 'wickedest workout on two legs', so yes, this can be extreme conditioning if you like.

The big concept here is that one should not train muscles but movements. Your body has no concept of muscles, just movements. Even if you have no intention of ever doing any martial arts training, taiso is a great workout and extremely portable. It doesn't need much in the way of equipment. Of course, you can get snazzy looking dumbells, but machines, weird diets and such are not to be found here. You'll move better, have more stamina and just feel good afterwards. Throw in 20 - 30 minutes of cardiovascular training and you have a really great workout.
