Phrases, Idioms, Sayings: You Can Lead a Horse…

Posted by:

There is an old adage about leading a horse to water, but not being able to make the horse drink.

For some reason, this saying has stuck with me. For several years, it kept coming up. The explorer in me kept asking, “Why and why not?” So, I finally added a part to make it work, to make it complete. After using it in conversation dozens of times, I have not run across anyone who heard the add-on before. So, there ...

Comparisons between Brain Science and Computer Science

Posted by:

For the past three or four years, I have had strong fascination between brain science and computer science.

Roughly half my work time is spent writing about the significance of the largest and most current technology shifts in the world – big data, PaaS, open source, data science, mobile, social, local, agile methods, and distributed computing. Over 2-3 years, I’ve contributed to somewhere around 200 articles in the space for one of the most innovative “start-up” companies on the planet ...

Ving Tsun Lessons 4 and 5

Posted by:

There are some really interesting things about these two lessons.

Mainly, it is about repetition of form and learning good habits.

As the old adage goes, “perfect practice makes perfect.” We do not want to form bad habits. I am learning what the center means and how to send energy while staying relaxed.

Reminds me of learning to surf or play guitar.

3rd Lesson: Balance, Timing, and Coordination

Posted by:

In yesterday’s class, I learned more about the overall skills we are developing in our core exercises of form, punching, and blocking.

  • These are foundation exercises to help our brains learn to better manage balance, timing, and coordination. This image seemed to speak to all three.
  • While the movements seem so basic when you first watch them, there is a tremendous amount of depth and thought that has gone into the approach.
  • Interestingly, the force to apply with blocks and punches was compared to a ...
