Re: Who is training IS and why still?

Who is out there training IS/IP?
While not as diligently as many here I have been working on incorporating the things I have learned from Mark Murray on the subject on some of his visits to the dojo regarding IS/IP.

Why are you still training IS/IP
Because I don't believe it is possible to have too many tools in one's toolbox. And quite honestly because it is rather fascinating.

and what impact has it had on your training?
Nothing huge really as of yet. (I have not been training that long after all) But I have noticed that I more and more often will automatically adjust so that I am stable in some rather odd positions where one would typically be out of balance. I am much more aware of when my body is aligned and integrated and when it is not a make adjustments now without needing to think about it too much.
