Thinking about a new kind of movement. Or rather a very old kind of movement. A movement that is not only a dance or a defense or an art but a way of life. Martial Arts.
I am a pure lover of dance. Nothing makes me happier than performing, taking class, studying a new technique or watching other brilliant dancers thrive in the perfection of their own spontaneity on stage or anywhere really. So it is interesting to me how with just an observation of a mere few movements, I can find the absolute similarities. Especially with Martial Arts and Ballet.
If anyone is watching , reading, listening, I would love to hear YOUR stories. What school, what philosophy, what drives you to this movement in play.
I myself have started with two items put in front of me by a friend who has had a lifelong dedication to Martial Arts. As I am truly a novice. They are a great beginning. I will eventually need more. Will keep you posted.
