Essentially why we recommend at least two hours of martial arts discipline
per day--and we mean something incorporating balancing of the body
initially with transitions into balancing / internal discipline (blood /
will strengthening) per day." -IID42
I wish I could find a teacher for this! The various times I tried martial
arts, it was all form, no "will strengthening." I hope such a notion is not
the cheap romanticism of Karate Kid? It seems that those that do the real
body / will strengthening have given their lives over to it, e.g., the monks
Maybe I should try and teach myself. But isn't that precisely what is so
misguided in those societies that anciently gave birth to the martial
arts? Let us not forget the story of Ekalavya in the Mahabharata.
(And why not extend that guru-concept to the exercise of other arts...)
