The team from White Dragon fought very well and many won medals in the no-gi submission grappling divisions. Congratulations to the winners and a big thanks to all who cheered them on!

Do you get at least 30 minutes’ worth of exercise three days a week? According to Gallup’s annual Well-Being survey, most Americans fall short of this fitness goal.

Adults in Vermont are the most frequent exercisers. Here, a little over 65 percent of responders answered yes to this question. Hawaii is in second place, with just over 62 percent, followed by Montana and Alaska residents, where 60 percent say they get at least 30 minutes worth of exercise, three times a week.

Meanwhile, Delaware, West Virginia, Alabama, and New Jersey have the highest rates of couch potatoes. Here, only about 46-47 percent of adults get at least 1.5 hours of exercise each week.

Any elementary-school teacher will tell you that children concentrate and behave better after gym class or recess. But those aren’t the only benefits of physical activity. After reviewing 14 studies (12 of them from the US), Dutch researchers found that kids’ cognitive test scores and grades are higher if they have outlets, like gym class or recess, to blow off steam. While they didn’t examine how much activity is necessary to up smarts, some is clearly better than none. So encourage your child to play sports and make sure her teachers give daily play breaks.
