Snowy Boxing

It’s year’s end and time is like an optical illusion: one year going the other approaching.

It’s the  tipping point when the season looks like it still has to decide what kind of changes to make. You take a hint from cooking and concentrate on practices that are like a stew: things that “cook” inward holding the lid on and capturing the heat. Try stance training, Qigong and other respiratory work, meditation, some stregnth training and just enough stretching and warming up to protect yourself. Try taking a minute or two and reviewing your martial year, too. What have you done? What was a new interest or a new idea? Spring will be here soon enough. Now’s the time to go inward and begin the quickening process where it can’t even be seen, but it can be felt.

This is the Kung Fu of the seasons.
