It's not often that that kind of "click" comes from reading rather than practicing. Thank you, Clark sensei.
You're most welcome Mary. Just one thought about practicing... it doesn't have to happen in the dojo, on the mat, with a keikogi on, etc. to be practice.

There's a saying that translates along these lines:
Wherever you are... that is your dojo.

I see no reason why watching with acute awareness, reading with an open critical mind, listening to things that at first seem different than we're used to hearing, etc. are not part of practice.

Gambatte!
