Scientific research has been done and written about this regularly in recent decades. For example, one study looked at Karate training as a combination of cognitive, physical and emotional activity. The test group involved people over the age of 60. After various training, the cognitive improvement was not present, but a clear improvement was visible physically and emotionally. In other words, elderly people who practiced Karatedo became fitter and also felt better emotionally. One of the conclusions was that the quality of life improved for these people (Jansen, Damen-Zimer; 2012).
