Monday morning, nice and cold … another seemingly long working week ahead. If it does look like you’ve got a long week ahead of you, as I say during class just keep chipping away at it. You’ll eventually end up where you are meant to be, don’t be in such a huge rush for it to be over. If things seem rushed, just stop for a second, shift your gaze, and take 3 long breaths. If things are slow or you get bogged down, enjoy the wait.
BASIC ACTION FOR THIS WEEK
- For this week try being unconditionally courteous.
- Respect that everyone has a space that they think is important.
- Learn to respond to every situation free from the ego (now that’s a challenge).
- Always be polite to everyone; we never hear enough please and thank you.
- Say excuse me when you enter and move through someone else’s space.
- Respond with a smile … say “that’s okay”.

WORDS OF WISDOM
Some great words of wisdom from Andy Sensei, the founder of Northstar Ju Jitsu:
“Remember learning self defence is more than learning to kick and punch. There has to be a mental preparation as well. This is why the ready stance is so important. It represents stillness and alertness. Coming to ready stance is coming home to the moment. This is the only place from where you can effectively respond.”
