The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Lenten Training Challenge



We all try to train everyday, but life often interferes. Families, work, travel, illnesses, you name it. Sometimes we need a little extra motivation to help push us over those rough spots.

I want to throw down the gaunlet for the annual Lenten Challenge. Lent, in the Roman Catholic church runs from March 1, through April 16 (Easter). I don't know what the dates are in the Orthodox Church, but I'm sure someone will post it.

So here's the challenge: train every day during Lent. No excuses, no days off. Won't you join me?

Can we practice CTH's Bagua Little Eight Palms as a warm up drill?
