Dana Abbott, train a lifetime. We hit on one of the master swordsman Miyamoto Musashi in cowboy boots and outrunning you in your High-School Physical Education class.
Training a lifetime, adding more life to your living is a twisty topic of fun. What the suits want in their training courses and how they determine the shape of that training. The Super Samurai Workshops are for those folks. It can transform the mind, but also in the body if the students stick around.
The use of props and good hair
You can get better at your art if you use props. You may call it a training tool, but props, because props aid the exploration of what you can and can’t do. A nod to cartoonist Scott Adams, of Dilbert, and his recommendation to be tall and have a good head of hair if you want to get ahead in management. That is funny and sad at the same time.
The organization of the day, it’s an easy affair these days. But, the ease of the day should not let one slip into complacency as you age, you must keep the flame. It’s about training a lifetime.
Posers in the Martial Arts
A swipe at posers in the martial arts. Get that anime hair out of your eyes and stop throwing your weapon into the air, unless it is of course an arrow. This will be no surprise, neither of us are a fan of throwing your weapon in the air, let alone twirling underneath that weapon.
You can find Dana Abbott at danaabbott.com and learn about his Super Samurai Workshops that are directed at communication, leadership skills and often the surprise discovery of something you are capable of and had in the past not thought possible.
