It is very simple to understand: Recently I signed up this young actress who was very uncoordinated. Understand that there are many people who are uncoordinated like her, but not only is this girl’s mind way outside her body, but even worse is the fact she doesn’t even know it! Sometimes she does certain movements and exercises that make it hard for anyone to believe that it could go completely unnoticed by her, but it is just the truth.
I took this person for no more than 3 month. Now for the rest of her life she is aware of her own body, mind, and spirit. Now she has the understanding of her body and mind on to any physical endeavor and not struggle as much as she did when she first came to me. Sometimes it is very hard for me to train these kind of customers, because they don’t have any idea of how bad they are.
This is the problem of many places teaching martial arts or any other physical discipline that requires athletic ability but above all it requires a high level of coordination in order to do well. They immediately start teaching the person techniques, they don’t teach this person to understand themselves, their own body, and the minds connection. Then when they go off on their own and end up in another dojo or gym they have nothing to show for themselves.
At Calasanz you have a tree, you make sure that this tree grow roots. These roots are the foundation (balance, coordination, endurance, strength, grounding, speed, flexibility, etc) for your skills to grow bigger and bigger. Once the roots grown then is does not matter where it goes there is a great foundation built.
That is now the case of this actress, I have given her a great foundation and she can now flourish in any physical environment.
