Day three was another full day that kicked off with a Private Lesson in the morning. It never fails to impress me how fail-safe and fool-proof our WingChun system is. And increasingly so with additional details to fill in seeming gaps. Education via experiencing errors is effective. Of course, only if they are soon followed by corrections and, thus, progression.
I mentally exercised sequence patterns as we drove to cosmopolitan Karlsruhe for a tasty traditional meal. Pausing to digest lunch and stroll among booths of the Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market), I resumed reviewing on the way back. Luckily, I wasn’t behind the wheel. And that’s not because of Glühwein (mulled wine).
Later in the evening I joined Sihing Chris Barnisky, IAW-HQ Instructor, in another Private Lesson to prepare for his 3rd Technician Grade exam this weekend. The Biu Jee Sections (8-12) contain combat coordination which are such brutal beauty to behold. Self-Defense is sometimes a perfect paradox.
There’s more. The Thursday night Regular Class was attended by about 15 students working hard in their Programs. This time, I enjoyed running through the First Section, what IAW Middle Level trainees appreciate as the eight-fold foundation of Puen Sao, with the Pre-Primary Level (PPL) aspirants. You can never repeat these basic exercises quite enough.
Somehow, in art, nothing gets old. Even after the umpteenth time, the artist renews.
