Costa Rica, inspired on Day 2 by a session training the Saifa kata.
When in the face of an attack,
Find a way to disrupt the line.
Move out of expectation,
Recenter your purpose to defend what you value.
~Step out of line, deflect, and counter~
When you feel bombarded by perfection,
Make time to be an imperfectionist.
Step away from previously drawn plans,
Recenter your intention to work towards the growth you desire.
In life, this kata’s concept can be a way to correct stereotypes or judgments placed on your person and it serves as a method when in search of personal growth. Attacks can be physical, vocal, and mental, and are both external and internal. How we shift our focus determines the outcome and the path we tread.
