just re listened to the D&D podcast, great stuff as usual :)
the reason i listened to it again was, i was sitting chatting to a fella i train kettlebells with when the topic of martial arts came up. he was telling me that he had trained in gong fu and kickboxing and he had been a teacher for a while, he is also a HKC instuctor.
As he was talking my mind wandered in to a sparring/fight situation between me and him not becasue he was challengin me in anyway (maybe) but just thats where my mind went. to my interest even in my mind i started accommadating the fella, i.e. letting him put in kicks and making it hard for myself.
why did i do this?
have come to 3 possible reasons
1. i am just a nice guy
2. i was feeling tired after a hard work out and my mind was reflecting it
3. i have been conditioned to acommodate anyone who presents themselves as a teacher
so now i have to work on each of these three things i guess
