1, 2, 3. Up, turn, down.
Whilst students strive to master the more complex moves that follow I sometimes cannot help but wonder why they don’t try to master the easier moves that occur in the beginning first.
The beginning moves are like Lego blocks, the latter like a finished Lego object. I think its easy to understand the analogy here.
You can run and you can run but the ghost of non-mastery will come back to haunt you if you don’t master the 3 because in many movements they are an essential part of the DNA of the techniques.
Without getting them down pat when it comes to using them your hands won’t go with it. Instead you will resist and you will resist, and mastery seems impossible.
There is a riddle here, an unasked question. If you fail to realize the enlightened insight here you will not see the next step ahead that follows naturally to allow you to get one foot into the gate of mastery. So no question then no answer.
