I don't really know if anyone has ever told you that you aren't any good straight to your face. Well, I could have made the title of this post even more dramatic but the real purpose of the title of this post was to capture your physical response when you read the title.

Did you change your body posture? Did you notice any kind of shift? It's likely that if you felt any sense of threat, you probably moved to some degree.

You moved.

Your body communicated something very specific. Freeze, fight, or flight seem to be the three options people think about in dramatic situations. These three options essentially translate into your body language. Through repetition we learn to react to situations with specific responses. Your body simply becomes comfortable "saying" certain things, sometimes even despite what you think you're saying.

It would be valuable to sit and reflect on how you reacted to this and see how to apply this in the dojo. I don't really know you so please don't misunderstand the title of this post as something literal. Enjoy your next class!
