Karate Master: Damaged Lungs Improved by Buteyko Breathing *

Please accept my great appreciation for the sessions which I completed with you at your center in Woodstock, New York. I also appreciate you continuing to work with me on SKYPE. I continue to incorporate the exercises which you taught me into my work-out programs and I am using these with my students in the Martial Arts to increase their physical abilities and over-all strength.

My breathing difficulties have decreased greatly over this last month. And I am looking forward to the completion of my “Breathe Less” course and moving on to “The Buteyko Lifestyle” series. In the thirty years since my lungs were damaged by hydracloric acid, I have not breathed as well as I am now doing following The Buteyko Method. I have reduced my use of medication by over seventy-five percent and expect to have a full recovery soon. As a professional Marital Artist and a life long ruby player, my health is greatly determined by the condition of my respiratory system. You have given me “the breath of Life” and I will always grateful to your efforts. I hope that someday you will be able to do a workshop in my Karate Studio.
