So, another element that I have been trying to incorporate into my spiral of martial basis is to employ certain skills once learned in the rhythm of life.

To occasionally place certain obstacles in ones path, not so as to make one fall, but to learn to avoid the real ones more readily.

It strikes me that I learned this in a couple of shitty western Kung Fu movies and then The Karate Kid, more from the Jackie Chan version than the one I actually grew up on.

Hopefully not he bonsai tree I started doesn't die this time...

Anyway, crossing the street at a light is "move fast and low and sudden across unsure terrain and threat of enemy fire".

Commuting to work has a hill placed in my chosen route which forces me to learn "quick, up the hill".

I expect that most of the time people might perceive it as "clumsiness" when I shift my weight so as to fall in a single "stumble" to where, and the orientation I mean to be in. Really, I'm making an explicit throw of my whole body.

As I do this I am practicing stances, movement, postures, balance, and kinesthetic Sense.

This is in its own way a magic.

Perhaps this was the message of those movies, not about fighting but about living in such a way so as to grow.

I’ve trained 4 years in judo, participated in the two-week krav crash course (without the bullshit added on from other martial arts and rebranded), just under a year for a variant of Keysi, and I am currently studying techniques from the likes of Silat, savate and sambo, as well as learning the fundamentals of Muay Thai and modern MMA.

Does anyone here do martial arts, if so what art or arts do you do.

I myself don’t but as I get closer to 40 I’m interested in the health benefits.
Did Take Kwon Do for my second belt as a kid and quit because I didn't want to break my hand punching a piece of wood.
As an adult took To Shin Do for three years. Good benefits. Some self defense remembered after years of non study.
Was in shape, now out of shape.

I have been disqualified by Japanese Kumite jurors for punching a renowned jap black-belt to the ground without even touching him. Witchery, they said.
All lies and jest 'till a man sees what he wants to see - and disregards the rest.

I can show you how to do the death touch Dim Mak if you get it too freaky.
