Re: Unbalance - Feet of Clay

Interesting. You paint a nice clear picture albeit an unfortunate one. I remember watching Akabono on T.V.

Another thing I watched in the beginning was K1. What I found fascinating there was how a martial artist from one discipline starts off usually discovering what he doesn't know how to do or how to defend against and so I'd watch that fighters progress to see his improvement in those weak areas.

Like you pointed out with the sumo, there were professional boxers who found they didn't know how to protect against kicks, especially to the legs. Things outside of their usual parameters taking their minds and their centers and physically of course taking them out.

More study and harmony needed me thinks, less feet of clay.

Thanks for the column Niall. G.
