I might improve discipline a bit.
The health and fitness benefits would be great .... and the sense of accomplishment could go a long way to promote self esteem and dignity.
Sounds great to me.
Also, perhaps the way of the sword, the Samurai were pretty cool, by all accounts. They did eventually spawn the Kamikazes although which is a point worthy of consideration. But tough, by fuck were they tough. Interesting fact, the Kamikazes were fuelled by meth.
I had actually heard that before. Though apparrently the same goes for American Troops all the way from WW1 through Vietnam.
Basically the 2nd world war was fuelled by it.
