Shintaido promotes a healthy mind and spirit as much as a healthy body. The benefits of practising include:
- Enhancing physical health
- Reducing stress
- Developing ki, vital energy
- Opening the mind
- Increasing communication skills
- Enhancing creativity
- Increasing concentration
- Strengthening individuality.
