(kick)box o’ pie

15 May 2014

Busy month of teaching, but having kickboxing students who work at a great bakery + last day of class for the session =

One of my favorite lines on kung fu says, “Practice boxing like a boat floating on water, flowing along for a thousand miles, avoiding the barbaric style of practicing martial arts which lends to disorders of the body and mind.”

Getting more into instruction has made me think about the celebration of movement this practice should be. We can share a sense of joy in the struggle and the motion from one point to another. Not different from the feeling of painting and drawing, moving a line across a page and delighting in the mark made.
