I was fine at first, but later my mind was going nuts over…something. It was as if I went from a brown belt to a white belt in a matter of seconds. Frustrating to say the least.
Then Sensei comes over, and said something that reversed whatever the hell was blocking my mind. I don’t remember exactly, something of “putting myself out there” and “whatever happened in the past is the past.”
He continued by stating a quote from the movie Batman Begins: It’s not who you are, it’s what you do that defines you. Now looking back, my sensei gave me a reminder of who I am and how movements are suppose to be done through me.
After training about 12 of us including sensei went out for lunch and coffee, resulting in a hangout that lasted from 2 to 5pm. All in all a frustrating day since in the end my mind became a cloud of soup and I couldn’t even pull off the technique.
The journey continues.
