Sit back and enjoy some very offensive humour

They cannot see through the mist of the present

Hunting for words that sound the future like a horn,

They lose the day in expectation of the night

And the night in fear of the dawn.

Adorned with lavish sentiments

Their words guild the truth,

Tomorrow filled with hope

Today becomes of no use.

Hear how their words remain words

See how they remain trapped within their cage,

Unable to conduct their thoughts into action

Unable to tame their rage.

Originality

Posted in Uncategorized on February 9, 2010 by shadowsamurai

Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to”.

-Jim Jarmusch

“The killer instinct

Even though their personalities, physiques, athleticism,  conditioning,  fighting skills, tactics, strategies and training methods might be completely dissimilar, most fighters in the true sense of the term do in fact share one thing in common.  That is the gratification they get from fighting, their  absolute resolve to destroy the man or men standing in front of them.  Indeed this fury of desire to destroy an opponent is so strong in some individuals  that it is  only the rules or an awareness of the possible consequences of their actions or the intervention of a referee or onlookers  that prevents them from killing someone.” Steve Morris

Morris Speaks…

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4, 2010 by His Dark Side

“As a trainer, although I recognise the importance of understanding  the tactical and dynamic nuances or details of a  move (for example) in relation to the whole of the fight, I don’t get bogged down by these details.  I place far more importance on instilling in someone who wants to become a fighter the desire or will to fight  and destroy his opponent.  I don’t worry too much about the skills or tactics  to destroy him with.   They come later, with experience and testing.  Your will to destroy your enemy is the first step, and the most important one.” Steve Morris

Patience

Chi Sau:

When he came at me, he would barrel down the centre – same as I.  He would move his feet and try a different angle – same as I.  He would try to pin my arms – same as I.  He would change the distance – same as I.  He would use different tools for the job – same as I.  But I waited, patiently.  Ah.  I feel that the elbow has flared.  I step and I hit.

“When you should hit, hit
When you shouldn’t, don’t
Don’t when you can’t
Don’t when you musn’t.” – Moy Yat’s Kuen Kuit

Light the Match

Posted in Uncategorized on February 2, 2010 by His Dark Side

I tried to come as close to death as I could, just now. Working out. Sprinting, moving. I could feel the thud of my heartbeat in my jaw. My ankle told me it was injured. So I cut the ankle. My heart was ready to ignite. I lit the match. The pulled muscle in my leg throbbed. So I tore the muscle out.

When the pain was removed, the observer stopped observing pain.

When the self was deconstructed, ‘nothing” remained.

It was the state of nothingness that drove me, egoless and centred.

100 Words

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on February 1, 2010 by His Dark Side

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
