It also led me to wonder how many little things...small daily or regular things do we do that condition us mentally and physically for our practice.
I remember Bill noting that he carries his sodas to the register in bushikens, to practice....sorta a modern-day jar gripping.
I read of a fellow karateka who uses a slow round house to redirect her toddler away from dangerous or reckless areas. I often use a rear elbow strike to turn off my light switches (large plate switches..only broke one )....perhaps somewhat silly...but little things like that can add up.
What little things do you do on a regular or daily basis..outside of regular training/practice that add to your practice?
**Dana Sheets noted in a thread:
When I was in Okinawa Master Tomoyose gave a lecture on Uechi. He said that he and others would constantly tap their hands in various fists on the tatami mats while they where sitting and talking, eating, reading the newspaper, etc.
