This is a Vietnamese exercise regimen consisting of a series of 12 movements done with a stick. The exercises are designed to maintain a healthy body and spirit by improving your balance, flexibility, strength, mental focus and breathing capacity. For more information, go to the following website Longevity Stick.

By the second meeting you will be required to have a one-inch-thick dowel, the length of your outstretched arms or corresponding to your height, with rubber chair leg tips on each end. Large men may feel more comfortable with a one-and-a-half-inch-thick dowel. Materials can be purchased at any home improvement store and cut to the proper length.
