Focus, Presents and Kung Fu

There is lots to do but it is not possible to do them all at once. In Kung Fu we are forced to give full focus to the move at hand and slowly build skills so that our minds are free to address the now of a situation. The system pre engineers options based off past experience so that we may choose to retreat, neutralize or complete.

I am beginning to apply this to other aspects of life, focusing on building skill through time and hard work, use past experience to engineer a natural system of optional responses,  stay present and with that feedback retreat, neutralize or complete then repeat what was just done.

Why I love Kung Fu

Some times the question of why I love Kung Fu so much surfaces (when I say “Kung Fu” I include Meditation Qigong and Taiji). Physicality with depth of consciousness makes it more then exercise. There is a spirit of connection to the past, present, and future, internal and external when taking up a practice with ancient wisdom like Kung Fu. This is true of many activities like dance, and in a way this is dance, the dance of the warrior scholar. It feels to have no bottom and no top but yet feels complete. For me it is an investigation into the self and the universe and is not the answer it is the question. I am thankful for this practice and thankful to share it with others.
– Blessings
