Dear Joshua,

Interesting article, it made me think. One of the reasons I like hitting a heavy bag with boxing gloves or practicing martial arts is because it allows me to express my frustrations & anger. Martial arts, however, emphasize control. Going at it with the heavy bag, on the other hand, screaming if I wanted to, kicking & punching, that is just excellent. 🥊🥋

I also like howling & beating on the bongo drums for releasing some inner demons. I recommend both, but can see how it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
