Can I Study Martial Arts with PKDIf you are a martial arts enthusiast but diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease, you may have the question: Can I study martial arts with polycystic kidney disease? How do martial arts affect my life expectancy? Now, let’s have a look at the questions.

Actually, there are many type of martial arts like taekwondo, boxing, wrestling, swordsmanship, Tai Chi, Qigong and so on. And some of them can be recommended to PKD patients, but some others are not suitable for patients with PKD. Why?

I am sure that you should know polycystic kidney disease is an inherited disorder characterized by growth of multiple cysts in kidneys. Overtime, the cysts on the kidneys can gown larger and larger, and they are at high risk of rupturing. If the condition occurs, patients are not suggested to do any sports. While, if you suffer from PKD but do not have blood in urine, some moderate martial arts can be recommended to you.

Tai Chi Chuan is a traditional Chinese art and today is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It is a perfect combination of dialectical thinking, martial arts, human arts and guide academics. And it is a good choice for PKD patients. Patients can get many benefits from doing Tai Chi Chuan:

Regulate immune systems

Relief of back pain

Self massages of internal organs

Help to treat high blood pressure, arthritis, aasthma, headache, diabetes and heart disease.

Strengthen muscles and reduce muscular stiffness.

Improve sleep quality


The term Qigong refers to various systems of breathing exercises and physical postures that are thought to improve general health by following the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can help relax your mind and mobilize the body’s energy.

But what I want to emphasize is that you should do these exercises properly according to your illness condition.
