Who, or what, does the changing in Karate. Interesting question, eh? I’ll give you more of an answer right after the video snippet.
Can you see any changes? Is it different than your Tekki or Horse Kata?
We study a fixed art, don’t change those forms, and that changes us. We adhere to a program, and become the program.
Yet, if we don’t change the martial art, the art will eventually stop changing us.
The art is a a manifestation of the spirit, and the truth of a spirit is that it must keep changing. This is the fact of creation.
So if you are an old dog who won’t alter a move to fit a situation…the porch is over there, go crawl under it.
But, if you are one of these rebel types, willing to put your chin out and risk a wallop, as long as you get to learn something, then you’re in the right company. Here’s a win.
Al I have enjoyed studying your work. I love how it is changing the way I look at Karate and Hapkido. Respectfully James
