You are probably wondering what this has to do with science, technology, and medicine. Interestingly, the linkage between certain board games and martial arts has long been exploited. So, I found it very interesting that not only has this rapper martial artist by the name of RZA adopted chess and that the first African American Grandmaster says that chess saved his life, but that Josh Waitzkin (the chess prodigy upon which the movie "Searching for Bobby Fischer" was based) recently took up martial arts and won two world titled in taichichuan. Perhaps it is all mental after all.
