Hello Shoshin:

Apologies for the delay in response... any idea what the "magic" is with the three year period you spoke of for yourself as finally getting under the skin of a particular kata? Its a time frame I've heard, read endless times previously... merely curious if there was a "what" behind that specific number...

Hello Wristwister:

I don't quarrel with the self-discipline facet you speak of but also consider introspection a fundamental purpose as well.

The movie "Budo" has a great line in it...

"The secrets of life are within ourselves"...

Totally agree with you that introspection is important. This is one of the pages on my website:


The Superior Man

Turns his attention to himself and molds his character.

Is firmly resolved.

Alone, is capable of being oppressed without losing the power to succeed.

Encourages the people in their work.

Retains his individuality.

Stands firm and does not change his direction.

Curbs evil and furthers good.

Falls back on his inner worth.

Is clear minded and cautious.

Is devoted in character.

Makes himself strong and untiring.

Has direction for his way of life.

I Ching
(collected from various discussions of "the superior man")
