Re: Training the Body for Martial Movement

Nice one Rob. In absence of actually feeling Ark in action this is a good beginning to outline what he is teaching at a mechanical level. The spirit of tanren as it relates to Budo practise is also something I felt from Ark very strongly, in a way that people without contact fighting experience might not relate to so much. Ideas like ma ai and sen become palpable when yi is developed into the body, as it is in Ark.

keep up the good work, Alec
