Today, in Haidong Gumdo training, we covered several ways to practise and refine a single (diagonal) sword cut.
I loved it. Time flew by.
Focus. Depth. Concentration. Action. Observation. Feedback. Adaptation. Re-focus.
The power of Repetition.
Of trying again. And again.
Variability in practise – one of the many things I love about studying Martial Arts – is made extra powerful by applying it to a single action.
Sometimes we learn more by doing less. Or rather – by doing more, but with deeply focused energy.
With each repetition we grow.
By focusing deeply, by being fully present, one can learn a lot from even a single cut.
A single kick.
A single breath.
