The Art of Kung Fu

So lately I’ve spent a lot of time teaching myself Zui quan, the art of drunken boxing.  I’ve taken a few versions of Kung Fu over the years and I’ve been touching upon this version of it in my spare time.

It’s such a natural thing, to have fun with.  I don’t know if I could’ve really enjoyed it if I didn’t have people to practice with because its very different from the rigid feeling of some martial arts.  It feels much more like a dance and an ebb and flow, than a set of algorithms that should be applied based on assessed situations.  Principles make more sense.  This realization is what has transferred me from feeling like I’m studying to feeling like I’m dancing.

More to come.
