A few weeks ago I began studying Shorinji Kempo, a Japanese martial art. Rather than attempting to describe it in detail, check out the official website for more info. It's been an interesting experience so far. During the first two classes I don't think I've ever felt so lost, so completely clueless, in my entire life. I must learn how to breathe, sit, stand, speak and move all over again. I think it will be a good experience for me if I can stick it out. I try to keep this quote from F. Herbert's "Dune" in mind when frustration starts to set in:

..a person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens.

Hi.....i´m a spanish kenshi, just let me tell you: -don´t take care if you feel lost, just practice and enjoy!!....shorinjikempo will do the rest.......i love it.....
