Re: Martial Arts in the Playground
Aye. I think the biggest thing I've learned is getting hit sucks and I don't want to do it. I think a good martial arts class will beat the Bruce Lee out of you, honestly. Well, if it's oriented for actual use.
Personally I just want to get into something simple, calm and entirely non-combative. Like shintaido.
Yes, I’ve seen the works of a great civilization; I’ve seen your skyscrapers, your subways, and your Internet cafés, but why have I yet to meet any of your civilized persons? I only encounter specialists, artists who know nothing of science, scientists who know nothing of art, philosophers who have no interest in gods … and politicians who only know other politicians.
