It was an honour to take part in this job, really  :)



Unfortunately life took a strange and unpleasant  turn at my end and I need all of myself to deal with it, not to mention preparing my final paper at the uni, etc. So I had to chop down some branches from the tree of my activities for a while so that I can have more energy for the most important ones.



Training of course is among the most important ones, so don't you worry, 'cos we can still meet on the tatami.



Maybe I will even be able to re-join your team again in a few years - who knows :) Or maybe you guys will kneel down in front of me begging to me to return Okay, maybe not, knowing how proud you guys are



Anyway, see you very soon this year  before Daikomyosai



Happy training to you



And wishing the best for Darren! :) Jan, Shawn, excellent choice!



Éva

Yes, I know about that - it is being fixed shortly (hopefully in a week or so).
Thanks for the note anyway!

Okay Guys, stop it!

I don't care who started, but take the personalities back to PM, and if you really want to write something for the public then rather concentrate on the original question of the topic.

Please

Hi,

There was a time when I had the same problems that you described he had and I've been struggling with it for a while.

Then after some time, when I went to Japan I realized what was the problem before: I tried to concentrate too much on how the techniques were done.
I tried to catch every little movement, the position of the feet, body, hands, hips, everything.
And therefore I missed how the technique went alive, and therefore I could not do it.
This was the typical case of "grasp all lose all".

In Japan I've learnt how to "watch" and learn loosely, how to feel the technique while it is demonstrated by somebody else.

He should probably have more feeling of the technique while shown, and here comes the importance of the instructor's ability to be able to pass on to him a taste of the feeling of the technique.

In my dojo my students also used to have hard times understanding some techniques, so I talked a lot about the feeling that I had while executing the technique. It almost always helped.
Sometime you just have to pass on the feeling, but to be able to do this you have to know a bit your partner's personality. So that you can speak a common language and he gets what you mean.

It certainly requires empathy at both ends.

Eva

OKay, psycho-time:

I have seen all kinds of responses and I have to agree with Shawn's points with regards to how to handle these difficulties when you are responsible for your students' cards, certificates, etc.

From the responses I also see that there are two kinds of persons: first is the one who gets grasped on the problems and tries to solve them till the last drop of blood, and the other is the one who releases them.

I tried both before (not with Hombu issues - I have never had any problems with them except for my own stupidity once) - and the latter method proved to be more appliable on a regular basis.

In my opinion you can do only two things:

1.
Go after the issue and struggle and keep complaining to the repsonsible people until your order is correctly fulfilled. But you may have to do it again and again, every year, whenever the issue raises. During this time you accumulate a lot of tension and tensed relationship with the people in charge, and with the people whom you complain to. (Maybe your students, too...)
And at the end it still will not solve this issue globally.


2.
You make sure you send the order correctly, and on time.
If the parcel never seems to arrive, or arrives with wrong content, you contact the responsible person or somebody who can check your order at hombu, and ask them to fix it.
The instructors' responsibility also comes into the picture here: namely: the way you communicate such a situation towards your students! Do you teach them for patience and cooperation or to get what they want by any price - just because they paid for it,
This method also means that you start to live WITH the "obstacles" in your environment instead of continuously trying to remove all of them, one by one.
This is a way of survival, too.
If you always fight till the last drop of blood against everything that you do not agree with (and I mean here "inner fights" as well, let's call them "dissatisfactions"), you will get mentally stiff, bitter and closed up.
Not a happy life at all.

3.
If you are a student in the same situation, and your instructor does his/her best to have the issue solved, best if you keep being patient and let things happen the way they should happen.
Until then your only task is to shut up and train.


And to all others:
We cannot control all aspects of our lives. We cannot control how others far away from us work, what they forget or don't forget, why they decide to have a parcel delayed or why they put our order to the end of their list, etc etc. They probaly have their own reasons and we cannot see into it.
The only thing that we have full control over is ourselves.
Our only task is to practice - after all this is why we are here. Somehow I have the feeling that if you try to "use" and work with all arising situation, phenomena in your own training and development, you will get way farther in training and understanding.
At least then we willbe able to say that all these problems had at least a reasonable point.


I know that for many people it sounds like a kind of "coward" or passive way, like "Hey, are you stupid that you don't run after your money??"
But the most important thing is what kind of life you will live. If we project it forward for example if laying on your deathbed you will regret the way you haved lived your life because of the way you have dealed with things, because of the continuous struggles to control everything and everyone - it will be too late to fix it then. Think ahead.
I know that this is something that is usually very hard to accept for most of the people.

OKay, psycho is off
and I am off too, for a long wekend
Have a nice weekend!

Eva
