Fighting Spirit Warriors – fit 2 fight to have a safe life. Why is physical conditioning so important? In order to protect oneself from the possibility of a violent attack it helps if a female is in great physical shape, which will make it easier for her to make a quick escape from a dangerous situation, or have the ability to run away from a situation, if necessary, or powerful enough if she needs to fight for her life.
