The Headless Horseman

One of my favourite quotes from The Hagakure is, “I know not the way to defeat others, only the way to defeat myself.”

There is no way of knowing how to beat my opponent.  There is, however, the entire knowledge of how to defeat myself.

Are there holes in my game?

Usually, after years of skill amassment, the issue lies not in gaining more skill but a need to look within – into the mentality of oneself as a fighter.

Congratulations

You’ve finished another year and escaped the Reaper’s hands once again!

Much proud.  Much love.

Peace.

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.

But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart’s knowledge.

You would know in words that which you have always known in thought.

You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams.

 

And it is well you should.

The hidden well-spring of your soul must needs rise and run murmuring to the sea;

And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes,

But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure;

And seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line.

For self is a sea boundless and measureless.

 

Say not, ‘I have found the truth,’ but rather, ‘I have found a truth.’

Say not, ‘I have found the path of the soul.’  Say rather, ‘I have met the soul walking upon my path.’

For the soul walks upon all paths.

The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.

The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.

When I think about Wing Chun I think that certain aspects of it are great. At the same time I think that other aspects of it are not practical for the average student. Wong Shun Leung said that Wing Chun is a good horse but few people can ride it. I totally agree with this statement. The techniques in Wing Chun that anyone can learn are chain punching, chasing, simultaneous punching and blocking and certain aspects of sticking hands.
