One of my fascinations in regards to martial arts is Shaolin Kung Fu. I’ve really been on a Shaolin kick for the past couple of years.
It’s a deep art that’s frustrating to learn — many of its moves are hidden — but which has a completely different outlook on life than we have here in the western world. It literally will change your life, reduce your stress, and help you find peace.
This morning, while trolling around on YouTube as I often do, I saw this pretty incredible video of a guy dodging throwing stars while staying balanced on a small platform. And as if dodging a throwing star aimed at your chest (while not moving laterally) isn’t hard enough, this guy managed to show supreme grace and calm during the entire feat.
Hope you enjoy.
