I am really happy that you guys are giving me a chance, I will try my best to bring you all the latest news and information in the sporting world, combines with some opinion pieces and maybe even some product reviews. And through all those different sports, with different groups of people and different skills/ideals I became a much better man, and I know that I would not be who I am today without those experiences. This has lead me to believe that sports are very helpful to people, especially children who are still learning. That’s why I created this blog; to help people become more educated about sports and fitness and I hope that this can help you broaden your understanding. Make sure to tune in next week for my very first post about some sports you may not have heard of.
This article provides details of the main components to read: how it happened, what it feels like, what you can do about it, and why it matters.
Airsoft is a skirmish sport that originated in Japan. It is a combat style game in which individuals or teams compete to eliminate the opponent with non-metallic pellets loaded in guns. Standard Airsoft guns are typically replica firearms having mechanism for shooting projectiles 6-8 mm in diameter. As per operating principles, Airsoft guns are classified as spring loaded guns, battery powered electric guns and gas-powered guns.
In late 1980s, this sport spread to UK and till mid-1980s it has been adapted as pure recreational activity in many countries. It’s the game for individuals of all ages. This skirmish sport also used in United States by numerous law enforcement agencies for force-on-force training drills in varying organized scenarios.
Laser Tag and Paintball appears to be two versions of Airsoft sport with the same concept behind it.
Maintaining a good level of physical fitness is something that we should all aspire to do. But what does fitness actually entail? What does being physically fit mean?
According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services,1 physical fitness is defined as “a set of attributes that people have or achieve that relates to the ability to perform physical activity.”
This description goes beyond being able to run long distances or lift heavy weights at the gym. Despite being important, these attributes only address single areas of fitness. Fitness is more than simply a question of listing which activities you do or how long you do them for.
In the area of Sport & Development, ‘sport’ is generally understood to include physical activities that go beyond competitive sports.
“Incorporated into the definition of ‘sport’ are all forms of physical activity that contribute to physical fitness, mental well-being and social interaction. These include: play; recreation; organized, casual or competitive sport; and indigenous sports or games.”
Through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing enjoyment to participants, and in some cases, entertainment for spectators.
