A dancing mantis

Fighting is a form of expression. Doesn’t surprise me that so many fighters end up incorporating dance on their training. Legend says Bruce Lee did it. Maybe I should too. To bring more yin to my yang, release the beast in a different way. Like this:

This dance reminds me of a story, though.

A long time ago, in China, a mighty praying mantis decided to challenge the king. It heard his horses coming so it stood there, in the middle of the road where the carriage would pass, performing its sharp forms with an intensity never seen.

The effort didn’t come unnoticed, for the king, who had his head out of the window noticed the little master perform. “What an interesting little dancer,” he said.

Then rode his carriage right over the little bug.
