Goju-Ryu. I miss it so much! And I am trying to connect again, in some way, with its soul by posting a blog entry about it. Silly. Isn’t it? But I can honestly say, the few years that I have been practicing Goju-Ryu in a small Dojo in Parys, free-state, gave me… something. Impossible to explain. Not physical, rather spiritu-mental.
Look at the guy below, I mean, he has the heart and the technique and the mental state to overcome many challenges, and not just physical! That is what is so special about Goju for me.
I don’t want to be a lazy programmer anymore. I want to not waste all this life energy by getting fat behind a desk! I want to give expression to who I am, as Bruce Lee said. And I do that best when moving the Goju way :) We are physical creatures, no matter how much we want to deny it sometimes, and convince ourselves that ‘pure knowledge’ and reasoning is somehow elevated above our physical bodies. Nonsense! Everything is on the same level – no higher states.
