New York Martial Arts Hombu News
Marian had a really hard day at the office and was trying to learn some new martial arts moves. As a martial arts teacher of
35 years, I tried to make her relax during class, but it appeared at first not to be working.
I then told her, "With all that pent-up emotion inside of you, why don't you try to do something with it? Turn all that emotional energy from a negative
state to positive feelings and action."
The next 15 minutes of the class turned into an amazing learning experience for Marian and me. She readily had a smile on her face as her learning of the new moves literally skyrocketed.
This example is a valuable life learning experience for all of us. As human beings, we are feeling emotions constantly.
It is how you process these feelings that decide your outcome.
