Day 239: The more you learn, the less you know

Friday, August 26, 2016

My Wing Chun instructors have often told me not to discuss what we do with outsiders – not because there’s some kind of code of secrecy or anything like that, but because ordinary people think we sound batshit crazy.

But today, having marked my first session as an instructor, I thought I’d indulge in sharing something that captured my imagination all morning: it occurred to me that so much of our day-to-day movement relies on leveraging dead weight against gravity, whereas the most effective movements in our lineage are weighted against our centre. Some of my general movements have shifted unconsciously towards this idea, but now I wonder what will happen if I apply it to, well, everything?
