A few Months ago I received an email that perplexed me a bit. I read it several times trying to follow what the sender meant with his approach to martial arts and the philosophy behind it.
It reminded of a few homework conversations with my son, where I could tell he had made an effort, but I wasn't quite sure how he arrived at his observations, nor were they completely accurate. So we would discuss it.
This episode is the where I take the email, and try to decipher, add my interpretations and narrative, plus a story or two.
