Holiday Homework

As you know, there are no classes for this week and the next, and the first adult class will be Tuesday, Jan 7th. In the interim, choose one way to translate your training in the dojo to your life outside the dojo. Not just philosophically, make it a physical thing.
Maybe you open doors by stepping back into Ichimonji instead of just pulling with your arm. If you drop something, maybe you don’t bend at your waist to pick it up but at your knees instead. Maybe in a restaurant you sit with your back to a wall instead of to the door. It doesn’t really matter what it is; the more mundane, the better. Choose one thing and do it in a “budo way”. We’ll discuss it in the new year.
See you on the 7th!
